Coloring Activity Worksheets

Coloring is important in early childhood education for a lot of reasons, according to kidsvillage.com.

They state that there are 6 reasons for this. First is that it helps develop hand-strength. As adults, we’ve been writing, typing, and doing fine motor skills for decades which means we take our hand strength for granted. Toddlers and preschoolers, however, are just beginning to build those muscles.

Second, it offers practice for pencil grip. By practicing with crayons, your child is fine-tuning their proper pencil grip. Pencil grip is part hand strength and part practice. Coloring allows for both.

Third, it stimulates creativity. Giving a child the opportunity to color helps stimulate the creative centers in their mind. Colors, shapes, interpretations, and imagined stories are all present when a child is coloring. Even if your child draws the same picture over and over, they’re still engaging the creative centers in the brain that process colors and shapes.

Fourth, it encourages self-expression. Drawing is a chance for your child to work through his or her emotions and to express themselves in a safe environment. Children may not always have the words to say exactly how their feeling, but coloring will let your child express himself without needing the vocabulary to do so.

Fifth, it improves fine motor coordination. In early childhood, children are still developing the fine motor coordination skills that will eventually support their daily activities. When your child colors, he or she is developing their fine motor coordination.

Sixth and the last, it helps develop focus. Coloring is also a great focus-building exercise. Focus is an important skill for children to learn, not only for their academic careers but for their professional careers as well. Focus is what helps us see through any task from start to finish. You’ll notice as your child’s focus develops that his or her drawings become more intricate, taking more time to complete.
