Coloring really is one of those timeless activities that keep the kiddies occupied, and can be a fun indoor activity that the family can do together. Not only does the physical rhythm of coloring calm the brain, alleviating stress and anxiety, doing it together sets the stage for conversation and connection. Coloring also helps children improve their motor skills, focus and hand eye coordination, teaches color awareness, and helps their self-expression. All of it just a set of crayons away…
