At what age should a child start coloring?
There is no right time to start coloring with your kids. While there are certain ages that pediatricians recommend your child knows their colors and fine motor skills to hold a crayon, the overall consensus of when a child should start coloring is really up to their parents. We’d recommend that your child is at an age where they can hold their own crayons and know that it’s a tool to use on paper, not something to eat.
Children who show signs of this desire to color may be ready to color their own coloring pages. While our free printable coloring pages may be best for preschoolers, you could easily color them with your kids of all ages for fun family moments.
Why is coloring with kids important?
When you use coloring pages to teach kids about various areas in life, they retain the information for longer. There are quite a few reasons why coloring is beneficial for kids and I’ll explain what you can do with these free printable outer space coloring pages for kids.
Coloring with kids helps them develop fine motor skills that will encourage their finger and hand muscles to grow properly. This skill is necessary for the ability to brush their teeth and other fine motor skill tasks that utilize your child’s hands and fingers in the future.
Coloring also teaches children color recognition, which is when they learn to identify and name different colors. This skill takes a little practice, and these free coloring pages are a great activity to do this!
Coloring with your children is one of the best ways to bond over a fun, creative and educational activity. These space coloring page printables provide you with an educational tool to teach your preschoolers about the solar system and the planets.
