Today I’m new articles name “Coloring Books – A Gold Mine For Creativity!” When I was a child I just loved to draw and paint but, as I remember, before I even could begin to draw accurately I used to color in. The next stage was to learn to draw using stencils and then I graduated to be able to draw freehand which provided me with an absolutely fantastic sense of achievement. I went on to love drawing but the point I am trying to make is that it all started with the simple yet effective art of coloring in!
So we’ve identified that every new skill that we learn requires a step-by-step approach. You’ll notice that even coloring in can be broken down in smaller steps in terms of the stages of the development of this type of skill. A child will begin by simple learning how to pick up and hold a crayon or colored pencil. Then they will learn how to apply the color onto the paper. You’ll notice that your child goes over the lines of the outlined drawing at first but don’t worry, this is only natural. Your child will soon learn how to color within the outlined areas. You should encourage your child to select different colors for different parts of the drawing. This will help them to not only recognize different colors but to also learn the names of the different colors. Developing these skills will help in later development too as your child begins to learn to read and write. He or she can then learn how to write the names of all of the different colors. You see learning is progressive and incremental – it happens in stages. Step-by-step as I have described. This is the true beauty of learning…the more that your child puts in, the more they will get out of learning. As their knowledge grows, so will their interest in a range of different subjects.
Coloring in is one of the main starting points of creativity in children. Being able to expressed one’s self with a piece of paper and colored pencils or crayons is a great thing to be able to do and remember, it leads onto being able to learn other brand new skills.
Quick tip! If your child has difficulty holding a colored pencil then try them with crayons first. Crayons are easier to hold because they are larger and softer. But as your child’s skills and abilities progress they will prefer the greater accuracy of using colored pencils. Get buy Flower Coloring Book Adult Today!
