Don’t underestimate drawing and coloring activities for early-age. For some parents, drawing and coloring activities may be somewhat ignored and they focus more on reading and counting activities. The reason is that reading and counting are more clearly the benefits for the future of kids, especially from the academic side.
Learning coloring can train kids to concentrate more. When completing pictures and coloring, your kid will focus more on completing his activities. He will be trained not to be easily disturbed even though the surrounding environment is noisy and not conducive. This ability will be useful later when your kid starts school.
In fact, there are many benefits of drawing and coloring for kids who will support their academic and non-academic potential in their adult. In order to grows your kid’s imagination, when your kid coloring, don’t give too much direction. Like, the leaf must be green. Or the sky must be blue. Because it could be, in their imagination, the colors of the leaves and sky are not like the colors of the leaves and sky that we see everyday.
Getting to know the boundaries of the image field is another benefit of coloring activities. Getting kids to learn coloring since early-age will train them more sensitive to line boundaries early.
