Ease Them Back to School With Colour!

Colouring is kid's play...or is it? It’s actually an excellent way to get kids back in the school groove.

kids-colouringKids love to colour (and so do adults!) and since school is looming on the horizon, getting your littles colouring (no matter their age) in the last few weeks of summer will get them in gear for school without stressing them out. Put away the flashcards and step away from the math drills and sit down with your wee ones with some pencil crayons and markers. You’ll be glad you did.

Why Colour?

Colouring helps littles practice holding a writing instrument correctly and helps develop those itty bitty muscles in their hands, fingers, and wrist.

Colouring helps a lot with hand-eye coordination as they learn to colour inside the lines (put away the video games!).

Colouring lets kids relax while creating a piece of art; drawing can sometimes be a bit intimidating.

Children develop the skill of patience and learn to focus on details when colouring.

Last, but not least, colouring allows you and your child to have quality quiet time together.
