I always enjoyed coloring as a child. It was a relaxing and creative activity that I gravitated to daily. Even now as an adult, I thoroughly enjoy coloring and doodling.

I spent many hours coloring with my children when they were younger. It’s a fun activity to do together with kids of all ages and a great way to find the opportunity to talk with your child and spend time together.

There are many benefits to coloring for both children and adults.

What are the benefits of coloring skills development?

Most of us enjoyed coloring as a child and many of us still do as adults. There are also developmental reasons to encourage children to color.

  • Coloring, drawing and writing all help build fine motor skills. Think about how a child first holds a crayon when coloring and then think about an adult artist holding a colored pencil or charcoal. Through practicing coloring and writing, children learn how to apply different amounts of pressure. The practice of coloring builds the small muscles in your hand and muscle control in the hand and arm.
  • Both drawing and coloring on a blank sheet of paper and coloring in an image are beneficial.
    • Freeform coloring and drawing stimulates creativity.
    • A coloring book or page helps further develop fine motor control in the hand.
  • The act of coloring builds hand eye coordination.
  • Coloring helps children learn about color, shading and blending.
  • Thinking about and completing a coloring project helps build focus and attention span. These are both increased and improved by extended use and practice. Since coloring is a fun activity, it’s a natural way to build a child’s attention span.
  • Coloring encourages creativity and self-expression.
  • It’s a relaxing activity that can help children process emotions and calm down with a pleasant distraction.
