There are times that he can finish one coloring book in one week using one color for each page. I just let him scribbles and doodles for as long as he is happy, our walls are living proof that he really loves this activity. But this did not stop me for giving him crayons and coloring books because I believe that there are benefits in coloring.
Right now, he always colors broadly over the picture, colors goes beyond the line and most of the time he will only use one color. But I am still hoping that time will come that his movement will become more precise and smaller and he will learn to use appropriate colors for each illustrations and pictures.
Coloring develops hand strength, grip and coordination. I’m not an expert but I’m trying to teach different techniques in coloring, up and down, side to side, circular motion and most of all staying in the lines, little by little I see some improvement but if he is not in the mood, he won’t listen to me.
Using the same worksheet, my son gave me different result.
I got my worksheet in www.schoolkid.ph
