As children grow older they will start opening up and talking more as you color with them. Parents who just hand out coloring pages for kids and go off to do other things are missing a valuable bonding opportunity. Most children will start to talk more openly once they are distracted with something to color. Coloring is a great time to ask your children about their day or to bring up topics which may be bothering them but they are hesitant to talk about at other times.
Create your own animal contest. Have the children color various animals in whatever way they like. If a child wants to color a monkey purple allow them to do so. Then cut up various parts of the colored images. Cut the body parts off of the animals and place them in a pile on a table. Then have the kids assemble animals out of the parts. The final product will be a remarkable and weird compilation. This exercise usually really gets the kids laughing as they create funny and weird animals.
There is no doubt that visual learning plays a key role when it comes to children's learning and development. In fact, visual teachings are commonly regarded as one of the most important factors that add a lot to a child's early growth and development. For the records, children are easily influenced by what they see, touch, feel and participate more than just what they hear. Visuals help them retain and remember lessons taught. It also takes care of verbal miscommunication and also creates and retains their interest in a particular lesson. It is often said that humans, especially kids tend to remember 10% of what they hear, 50% of what they see, and 80% of what they see and do. This underlines the importance of visual aids in learning and development of kids.
