Learning to colour is easy for some children and a little more challenging for others. Other than learning how to hold a crayon, children need to learn that some things are of a certain colour.
Don’t get me wrong, I definitely encourage creativity and for Phoebie to think out of the box. She can say the sky is purple and colour it that way. However, she will eventually have to learn that the sky above our heads is blue and it isn’t always the colour she wants it to be.
Phoebie loves to colour with her crayons, but one thing she likes to do is to leave the colouring incomplete. She has a tendency to leave white spaces in the parts that she colours, so I used this activity to remind her to finish colouring the picture instead of leaving white spaces all over.
Let’s hope that with more practice, Phoebie will learn to colour better.
