The Benefits of Colouring for Children & Adults

The Benefits of Colouring for Children & Adults

Colouring is a great way for children to express themselves. This simple activity can have many benefits, from entertainment to enhancing development. Here are a few of the other benefits of colouring:

  • Develops fine motor skills
  • Encourages patience & relaxation
  • Helps with concentration
  • Further handwriting skills
  • Encourage colour recognition
  • Preparation for school
  • Boost confidence
  • Promote creativity
  • & also don't forget having fun!

Colouring is no longer just for children. Adult colouring has grown in popularity recently & has been linked with the following benefits:

  • Relaxes your brain & improves brain function by focusing on the activity before you & activating different parts of your brain
  • Improves motor skills from using more hand-eye coordination than scrolling on electronics
  • Improves sleep if done before bed instead of using electronics with stimulating blue light
  • Improves focus by helping you to relax from the day & focus on one task
  • Reduces anxiety as colouring for at least 20 minutes can help lower your heart rate
  • Relieves stress through doing a repetitive activity that requires attention to detail so you don't pay attention to other things
