“Colours are the smiles of nature.” – Leigh Hunt
Colouring has an important place in a child’s development. It provides an opportunity to practice and develop many skills such as concentration, fine motor, coordination for early writing and correct finger grip. One of the most important aspects of colouring is that it helps in developing hand strength.
Colouring gives children the opportunity to stimulate the creative centres in their mind. When they are engaged in such activities, their mind is filled with different interpretations and imaginations. Various colours enhance their self-expression. Being able to express what they feel also boosts a child’s emotional intelligence.
Here in Play Group, an activity named ‘HUE’ was conducted where students were provided with an outline picture of sun and asked to colour it with crayons within the given boundaries of the picture. This activity has enhanced their fine motor, naturalistic and visual skills.
