So many positive things have been said about coloring sheets and coloring apps in general. Lately, a new trend has emerged on the Internet and it is absolutely raging: color by number and paint by number coloring sheets and pages. Let’s put all these online apps aside for a moment, and focus on the benefits of color by number coloring books alone, especially for young users. Okay, you are given a picture, the numbers are there within it, and you are already told what the color for a corresponding number is. How can it be beneficial? If nothing, it seems a bit simple and stupid, don’t you think? Well, not really!.
The History of Paint-by-Number, Paint-by-number kits were first developed in 1950 by Max S. Klein, an engineer at and owner of the Palmer Paint Company in Michigan. These kits were co-created with commercial artist Dan Dobbins. Wikipedia stated, “In 1951 Palmer Paint introduced the Craft Master brand which sold over 12 million kits. This public response induced other companies to produce their own versions of paint by number.” Paint-by-number kits had mass appeal, and for good reason: they gave everyone the chance to create something beautiful. Although many art critics detested these kits, the public loved them. While they are not as popular as they used to be, paint-by-number kits are an American trademark and are still well-loved by people all over the world.
Coloring activities are popular kindergarten games, and while they can provide ample opportunities for fun, these activities are also extremely important at teaching children about focus and concentration. It is believed that children who spend time coloring have better skills in concentration and focus. Coloring activities will require your child to concentrate not only on the movement of his crayon, but he will also need to focus on the result his coloring is leaving behind on his paper while also ensuring that he is choosing the color that correctly corresponds to the assigned number.
