Motor skills are quite important for kids who are growing up. Filling in different shapes helps your kids develop the tiny muscles of their hands, fingers and wrist. Besides, good motor skills are important for your kids to use small objects. So, this is helpful for your kids to do better in school.
Coloring books for adults is an offspring of art therapy which is a mental health profession that is the process of making and creating artwork which intends to ”explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem” (according to the American Art Therapy Association). So basically, it’s similar to good old therapy. Also, art therapy is not only about mental health and improving yourself – it’s a form of personal expression, as well.
It’s actually healthy
If you are anything like me, I started downloading free examples offered by artists located Online. Selecting landscaping, animals, people, and objects allowed me to experiment and gain a better understanding of colors.
Adult coloring books don’t cost much. They come in all kinds of sizes and prices, so they fit everyone’s needs (and pockets). Besides, one coloring book, if colored diligently, could last for at least a month. After all, it is way cheaper than a psychotherapy.
And it wasn’t so long ago when adults were ashamed to admit they kind of liked coloring their children’s coloring books. It was considered childish and somewhat infantile. Researchers even claim that adult coloring books owe their rising popularity to the virtual anonymity of their purchasers – adults were actually too embarrassed to buy ”such” books from regular real-life bookstores. It was thought to be socially unacceptable.
Parents, guardians, and caregivers, who surround kids with fun colorful characters or pictures as depicted in story books (literature of any kind for that matter), are helping to inspire and foster a love of reading within them. And, finally, how fortunate we are today because many authors who are gifted when it comes to pumping out new and interesting stories, often provide free downloadable pages for coloring on their websites…which provides an opportunity for kids to add their own spin to new and beloved characters.
