As parent, I sometimes wonder what kind of activities that can both fun but yet educative for my kids. Is there any activity that we both can do it together and pretty flexible in time and place since I am a working mom. After doing some research on the internet about it, the answer is surprisingly pretty simple and I wonder why I never aware about it faster. Yes, its coloring page folks.
Both my kids actually doing this regularly, but I really didn’t aware about all that kind of the advantages after I do my little research. I just though, okay the kid’s seems like it and that’s all. It turns out by doing coloring activity the kids can reap many benefits from this simple task. Here some of the benefits that might blow of your mind parents.
By doing coloring activities the children can learn about many different colors, tones, hue, line, shape, form, perspective, pattern and other pre-reading and pre-math skill. It can also help them to develop better hand-eye coordination as the kids sometimes need to fill the color within the specified locations.
Furthermore, coloring activities can also help the children to practice holding writing tools in the correct manner and it is pretty significant in developing minor muscles in hands, wrist and fingers. Once they accomplish their coloring sheets, they can also get the feeling of satisfaction, accomplishment and achievement which is essential to build their self esteem.
If you have an active kids, coloring activity can also let these types of kids to relax and be comfortable while in the same time help them to develop their patience and self control. So, with these many benefits that my kids can have I wonder why I am not spent more time into this fun activity together and watch them learn and grow.

So there’s no need for crayons or colored pencils, just using mouse or tap of finger your kids still can have a fun activity to do while in the car. Go ahead and give your kids something to color. Accompany them while their doing it or do this as a family activity. It’s really fun, easy to do and almost cost you nothing.
