Just like guided meditation, coloring allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and worries and focus only on the moment, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety. It can be particularly effective for people who aren't comfortable with more creatively expressive forms of art, like painting or writing. The participants who are more guarded find a lot of tranquility in coloring images. It feels safer for them and it creates containment around the coloring process. So, what is it that makes fairy coloring such a worthwhile pursuit? This is my opinion, obviously, but here goes. When a child, or an adult faces a crisp white coloring page it is the beginning of an adventure. It gives a little feeling of elation and wonder. It might give you a little feeling of fear or confusion. Trust me, if you relax and realize that you are doing this "just for the fun of it". This cliche is true. Any art is really for the fun of it. For the exploration and adventure. However, it is important to understand that using a coloring book for adults is not exactly the same as completing an art therapy session. While art therapy was first practiced in the 1940s, the first research on using adult coloring pages as therapy is generally believed to have only begun as recently the mid-90s. Characters that children love, like Pokemon, Dora, Barbie, Thomas the train, Scooby the Dog, Donald Duck etc and many more can be easily accessed and printed out for them to add their own imagination of colors. Coloring can be a family activity as well. It is one of the best ways to spend time creatively with your child and bond well. Thus you can spend a relaxing time that is a brain tonic for your child too!
Coloring printouts can also be obtained through libraries and bookstores specifically meant for kids. But why to spend money when they are available for free. You just need to spend over the crayons needed to color such pages. Children keep themselves engaged in an educational activity which proves to be a great learner for them.
