Coloring Is Not Just a Pastime, It’s a Tool for Learning!

In recent years, coloring has been praised for its meditative qualities. In fact, we even wrote about how it can help relieve anxiety and stress. But coloring also plays a different role in every kid’s life: it’s an impressively good teacher!

When kids color and draw, they are using different senses to experience the world. They are touching crayon to paper, and this sensory connection can help kids accept and process information. While it might seem like kids are tuning out and relaxing when they color, they are also deeply present. And that’s a great place to learn from!

So use the coloring pages below to teach your kids some fun facts about animals. And see how much they absorb!
