August 2nd is National Coloring Book Day and we love this day at Auto Glass Service because who doesn’t like to color?! Coloring has notable benefits for children. It helps improve fine motor skills and it also trains their brains to focus on a task. It’s a relaxing activity that is also great for adults! Coloring books are a great way to quiet your mind, improve fine motor skills, improve sleep and focus, reduce anxiety, and relieve stress, according to webmd.com.
As you’re shopping for school supplies for the upcoming school year, make sure to grab a few coloring books for the youngsters in your life – they’ll enjoy having something relaxing to work on after a long school day. Whether they’re coloring animals, their favorite cartoon character, or even cars, this is a great activity to keep your child happy (and busy) – and a great conversation starter.
If your child is interested in cars or mechanics, coloring books specific to these topics would be perfect for them. Focusing on the designs that they’re coloring will not only be a fun activity, but it’s likely to pique their curiosity about the automotive industry which could lead to interesting conversations. They may ask questions about different types of cars, makes and models, vintage versus hybrid, etc. As a family, you could do some online research, watch some YouTube videos, or even attend a local car show where they could see a large variety of models up close and even ask questions.
So, we encourage you to pick up some coloring books as part of your back to school shopping to supplement whatever lessons your child will be learning in school this year. In the meantime, take a look at these FREE car coloring pages that you can print out and give to your child . . . we won’t tell if you decide to keep them for yourself.
