Just one other comment about the postings on this topic so far, and that is in regards to coloring ”competitions”. While I do not necessarily support coloring ”competitions”, because I feel that coloring is a form of self expression and that you cannot judge self expression, I think there are right and wrong ways to have a coloring ”competition”, if you feel like you must have one. First, don’t award a prize to the winner, unless you plan to award everyone a prize for ”putting forth an effort”. Second, if you are going to award certificates or something like that, I agree with what’s already been said, and you could consider making up a unique certificate for each person who entered the ”competition”, like ”Most Colorful”, ”Neatest”, ”Most Artistic”, ”Most Unique”, etc. It is important to recognize every coloring ”competition” entry as a ”winner”, just for putting forth an effort of self expression.
Some good old fashioned quality time with you, your child and a colouring book can be just what is needed to make any day OK. It’s a quiet space (sometimes!) where you can interact with the children during their peaceful playtime and just chat. What could be better.
Picking up the coloring utensil and putting it down to paper requires children to learn hand-eye coordination. If they put the crayon down here, then this is where the color appears.
