Benefits of colouring for children
While it's a relaxing form of self-expression that stimulates creativity it also promotes a range of benefits to nurture well-being.
Enhances fine motor development
Colouring is an activity that helps children build the muscles in their fingers, hand and wrist which aids in manipulating small objects.

Improves hand-eye coordination
Colouring requires great attention to detail and precision to keep within the lines which give children an opportunity to develop coordination.
Develops spatial awareness
Visual perception is an important skill to develop in young children. Colouring can help strengthen awareness of the hand's position and margins on the page to help children keep their pencil within a given area.
Builds concentration and focus
When children are asked to colour between the lines, they may
need to concentrate more than they would with freeform drawing.
Because they are contained to a specific area, they will need to
stay focused on the space they have to fill and be more precise
in their application.
Promotes creativity and self-expression
Colouring allows children to express their individuality through colour selection and medium. It's interesting to observe how much pressure they apply, the colour choices they make, and whether they colour loosely or tightly. Everyone is different and so is each masterpiece.
Teaches colour and shape recognition
Filling in the spaces with colour on a printed page helps children to recognize hue, perspective, shape and form as well as giving them an opportunity to explore different colour combinations.
Relaxes and releases emotions
Colouring can have a profoundly therapeutic and calming effect on children as they shift their focus to concentrate on finishing their picture. This peaceful activity can provide an outlet for processing emotions and take the focus off challenging situations.
