When a child is coloring, it is not often considered a lesson to learn skills. However, coloring is an excellent activity to help children develop fine motor skills. The correct development of their fine motor skills will help children later learn things like writing, getting dressed and being able to feed themselves. Often, coloring is the first learning experience of entering a writing instrument. A child who learns to color within a coloring sheet learns to focus on eye-hand coordination, which will help him improve. When children are able to color the lines, this is often an important milestone.
