Benefits of Colouring & A Printable Colouring Book with KidloLand

A couple of months back KidloLand asked me to review their fun nursery rhyme app for young children. You can find my review here: KidloLand App Review Now they have put together a fun free printable colouring book. It’s a great money saving idea for keeping young children occupied and has many benefits which I’ve listed below.

Benefits of colouring for children.

  • Concentration – Colouring helps children concentrate. As they grow older a child’s concentration develops and lasts longer. Colouring can help this.
  • Motor Development – Colouring requires a child to hold a crayon or pencil in which they learn to grip with their fingers.
  • Hand & Eye Coordination – Colouring is an excellent activity to help develop hand and eye coordination. It takes time for a child to learn to stay between the lines but once achieved they gain a sense of pride and achievement and also confidence.
  • Colour Recognition – Colouring is great for learning new colours and colour awareness.
  • Creativity – Children can learn to be creative with colouring in. Colour patterns, deciding what colours to use and where all gets their minds thinking.

 

Benefits of Colouring

Colouring is not only for children. The latest craze is adult colouring. While I was pregnant I found it to be very relaxing and calming. I haven’t had the time since baby girl arrived to do any. One day I will get my colouring book and pencils out and do some.

Adult colouring is the perfect de-stresser. It’s therapeutic, stimulates calmness, and gives you a kind of focus.

Do you like to colour? Have you ever done colouring activities with your children? What sort of designs do you like to see in colouring books?

    I’ve always loved colouring though I never find the time to do it as an adult. I will have to check out the colouring book for the kids. Thanks for linking to #PickNMix

    Robert isnt quite ready for colouring yet but I definately see the benefits of it. I love colouring and craftyness myself so I will be trying to encourage him to do it one day. He has a chalk board in our bedroom that he’s done a few lines on! Thanks for linking up to #FamilyFun. Hope you can come back next week!

    I have a few adult colouring books and I love them. They are a great way of relaxing in the evenings (if you get any free time!) Clem is obsessed with colouring and ‘drawing’ at the moment.x

    I’d love to try one of those adult colouring books to help me de-stress. The Popple is too young colour, but I did buy her crayons – she just drags them around the paper (and sometimes on the couch!) #FamilyFun
