Let’s take this pumpkin coloring page up a notch, shall we? Children finish the pattern they see in each section, then color the pumpkin.
Finish the pattern activities bolster sequencing skills, critical thinking, logic and reasoning.
Plus, intricate coloring isn’t just a peaceful activity, a fun mindfulness practice or a simple way to help regulate the nervous system. It also exercises attention skills, helping kids slow down and focus on the details. Intricate coloring taps into creativity as it strengthens fine motor skills, too.
For older students (or any adult obliging their inner child) I recommend embellishing each of the patterns even more, before finishing the patterns within the pumpkin. Add more lines, shapes, dots, squiggles. Make the coloring experience as intricate as you wish!
