Benefits of Coloring Pages
The benefits of colouring pages for kids are numerous! Here are some of the main learning benefits that your child can gain from colouring:
Learning Colours with Rainbow Pages
Using a rainbow colouring sheet can really help engage children in colour recognition in a fun and simple way. Discuss the colour with your child (you could use the rainbow colour sheet above)
Developing Fine Motor Skills with Coloring
Using colours to make marks on paper is a great way for children to keep developing fine motor skills. Don’t worry if your child is not ‘colouring’ this is normal, just give them opportunity to hold a crayon and have a go
Using Coloring a Coloring Page as a Calm Down Activity
Another great benefit of colouring pages is that they are soothing and relaxing. If you want a way to calm your child down at the end of the day, or create a gentle start to the day, then these are perfect. They are nice and simple rainbow coloring pages meaning your child can focus easily and not be overwhelmed.
