Coloring allows children to express their individuality through color selection and medium. It’s interesting to observe how much pressure they apply, the color choices they make, and whether they color loosely or tightly. Everyone is different and so is each masterpiece. Filling in the spaces with color on a printed page helps children to learn hue, perspective, shape and form as well as giving them an opportunity to explore different color combinations.
When testing to measure improvements in psychological outcomes, a study concluded that ”Coloring participants showed significantly lower levels of depressive symptoms and anxiety after the intervention… We conclude that daily coloring can improve some negative psychological outcomes and that it may provide an effective, inexpensive, and highly accessible self-help tool.”
Visual perception is an important skill to develop in young children. Coloring can help strengthen awareness of the hand’s position and margins on the page to help children keep their pencil within a given area.
