Because I am a teacher at heart I always like to include the benefits of coloring books. These St. Patrick’s Day coloring pages will allow kiddos to work on the seven benefits listed below.
7 BENEFITS OF COLORING BOOKS FOR KIDS
The more practice kids have holding writing tools, the stronger their fingers get. You don’t want to force kids to write all the time, so why not practice with some coloring pages.
Practice with writing tools
Coloring books expose kids to different kinds of writing tools. They will work on strengthing their tiny finger muscles while learning the proper way to grip their preferred writing tool.
Increases hand-eye coordination
When kids color, they are often looking at small areas of their picture and making a decision on which color to use. This is helping to promote better hand-eye coordination as they color in a specific area of their image.
Teaching kids to color in the lines is teaching them the art of patience. Most kids to want to hurry through their coloring to get to other activities. Coloring books can really help them to slow down.
