In the process of painting you focus your attention on a subject that is at your fingertips. If you do it with enough concentration, it will ignore the extraneous noise, unpleasant thoughts and worries. This is a very useful skill that will be useful in situations where you need to briefly forget about your physical or emotional pain.
To make a max benefit from coloring cheerful pictures, it is desirable to get involved as well. At the same time you should give maximum freedom for actions to promote and in any case not scold if the baby suddenly wants to use a non-standard approach to the application of paints and colors. Let your kid color the alligator in red and swan in green; you shouldn’t blame your child for using the wrong colors, but try to turn it into a fun story. This type of activity should encourage the child to the creative process and the knowledge of the new information, while the parents should contribute to this in every way.
