The last benefit I would like to discuss, actually consists of two advantages. Coloring allows your childs creativity to blossom, but it also provides insight into a childs emotions, and often child psychologists will utilize this tool to learn more about a childs feelings or frame of mind at a particular time. This is another great benefit of coloring for children, it can help you to understand how exactly your child feels at any given time.
Coloring is a natural childhood joy. You see pure bliss on a childs face when given a new coloring book and especially a new box of crayons. Did you ever notice that one of the first things a child does with her crayons is to smell them? Their smell is invigorating and tantalizing.
Unfortunately as adults, we tend to put our crayons aside for more grown up endeavors. As we mature we put away our artistic aspirations and replace them with more worthwhile activities.
