4 Benefits Of Colouring For Kids
Today we are looking at this super colouring range of art and colouring books. As a kid, I would spend hours with my colouring books, heck, even as an adult I enjoy colouring in.
My kids love to colour too and that is what drew me to this series of colouring books. If some of you guys are saying to the screen “kids still like colouring books?”
I also want to tell you a few of the benefits that come from giving a child a colouring book, some pens or crayons, and letting them get to it.
The Benefits Of Colouring For Kids
Here are just a few of the colouring benefits for kids that come from them spending some quality time with these Super Colouring (or any colouring book really) books.
Handling The Pencil: One of the most important skills a child needs to learn is how to hold and handle a pencil properly.
Colouring books serve as a fun way for a child to spend some real quality time with a pen or pencil. If they already are familiar with the right way to hold a pen or pencil before they start school, they have a good head start.
A Creative Boost: Colouring in is a great deal of fun and chances are if they are colouring in a picture of Spider-Man or Belle, they will want them to look the same way that they do on TV and that is great.
However, with a colouring book like Super Colouring Fun: Awesome Dinosaurs, children can get really creative and have fun coming up with their own version of what colours they think they should be.
Colouring books really do serve as an early way for a child to showcase their creative side.
A Physical And Cognitive Workout: Developing solid hand-eye coordination from a young age is a great thing for a child to do. Colouring is actually a good way for a child to be able to do that.
Also, holding a pencil for a while can be pretty tiring for a child, especially if they have not really done it much before they go to school. By colouring, they are going to get much more used to holding a pencil and develop their hand so it does not get as tired quite so easily.
Although I am pretty sure their hand will get tired and sore from doing math much quicker than if they were colouring a picture of Chase and Rubble from Paw Patrol!
Following The Rules: Ok, so following the rules does not exactly sound exciting, but there are rules with a colouring book.
Sure, at first, they will probably be out of the lines and all over the place. However, you can teach a child to try and stay in the lines the best they can and that kind of “lesson” can then be applied to other things in life too.
The Super Colouring Fun Collection
So far there are four awesome books in the Super Colouring Fun collection and we are going to look at them all here. I can tell you firsthand that my kids had a fantastic time with all four of these books.
Today we are looking at this super colouring range of art and colouring books.
As a kid, I would spend hours with my colouring books, heck, even as an adult I enjoy colouring in. My kids love to colour too and that is what drew me to this series of colouring books.
If some of you guys are saying to the screen “kids still like colouring books?” I also want to tell you a few of the benefits that come from giving a child a colouring book, some pens or crayons, and letting them get to it.
Super Colouring Fun: Rainbow Unicorns:
What kid doesn’t love unicorns? The Super Colouring Fun: Rainbow Unicorns is something kids are going to have a great time with.
The book is packed with page after page of cute, fun, and sassy looking unicorns that children are going to have a whole lot of fun colouring.
What makes the Super Colouring Fun series so great is that each page also has writing for children to read as well.
In the case of this book, each page has a bit of narration telling kids what is going in in the image. As well as colouring in, they are also getting a bit of reading practice here too.
Super Colouring Fun: Awesome Dinosaurs:
Awesome dinosaurs, more like “ROARsome” Dinosaurs… am I right?
Dinosaurs are something that will never go out of style no matter if they are still into Barny or if they have graduated to Jurassic Park, kids love dinosaurs. This book is packed with all kinds of dinosaurs from a ferocious t-rex to a more laid back stegosaurus.
The Super Colouring Fun: Awesome Dinosaurs book does not just have lots of epic dinosaur scenes for children to colour. It also has some interesting dinosaur facts on each page as well.
Super Colouring Fun: Pesky Pirates:
Ahoy mateys, ye be on the right track if ye young uns want some pirate booty to colour in! I am fully aware of how cringy that was, my eldest “lovingly” likes to inform me of my cringe factor on a daily basis.
The Super Colouring Fun: Pesky Pirates is a very fun colouring book in the Super Colouring Fun range. Each page is filled with pirate fun! Children will get to colour the sails of an epic pirate ship that is roaming the high seas!
They can even colour the water so it makes a big splash when one of the pirates has to walk the plank for being a real peg legged scaly wag!
Super Colouring Fun: Sparkly Fairies:
Last, but by no means least we have this “magical” Super Colouring Fun: Sparkly Fairies book.
From fairy wings, magic wands, spells, and magical unicorns, this colouring book has all the things that kids love about the world of fairies, pixies, and more.
Each page is filled with a fun fantasy scene that features fairies having fun in the woods, playing, flying, performing spells, and just living their best fairy lives.
Like the rest of the books in the Super Colouring Fun range, this one also features a bit of text on each page. Sometimes, it tells children what is happening in the scene and others it gives children an idea or two of how to colour the image.
Not only do all four of the books that currently make up the Super Colouring Fun series offer page after page of colouring fun. These are also nice and cheap too so they make for a great, but low-cost gift for a child too!
