Children Love to Color

As children, one of the first things we learn is to color. This simple and enjoyable hobby has translated perfectly into the world of gaming. Coloring games are a stress-relieving and fun way to spend your free time.

The History of Online Coloring Games

For many of us, our first experience using a computer involved Microsoft Paint, a software program introduced in 1985 that gave people the opportunity to color and draw on their PC. It felt revolutionary at the time and for years this was the way people could express their artistic side online, using a mouse and cursors to draw shapes and fill them with color.

In the early 2000s technology had developed to allow coloring online to be a realistic option. As more pixels were available on screen, the color palette available to players was more flexible. Online artists had access to more sophisticated tools. With social media. coloring games are now bigger than ever. They are interactive and it has never been easier to share your creations.

In 2017 it was announced that Microsoft Paint would no longer be updated or developed. This news caused controversy and public outcry. This reaction was partly nostalgic, as people fondly remember using Paint and similar programs in the early years of using computers. In response to the huge reaction to the news of its demise, Microsoft reversed its decision and Paint still receives updates today, including the addition of new brushes and new improved tools.

Today, online coloring games are more sophisticated, from games that ask children to color in their favorite animals to those that allow you to flex your creative muscles. You’ll be sure to find something to keep your children entertained for an afternoon and it might even act as a gateway into gaming as a pastime for them. These are not games based on skill, but on imagination, and imagination is something that children will always find time for. At GamePix, we proudly feature many of the very best coloring games on the market, which have been delighting art loving players for years.

Coloring Teaches Children Vital Skills for Life

Creativity is one of the most important things for children's development. Every opportunity young people can have to express themselves is vital. Coloring allows children to explore their creativity. They can choose colors, experiment with different combinations and allow their imaginations to take over.

Coloring is Good For Your Mental Health

People who experience anxiety respond incredibly well to coloring. It is a calming and soothing activity for both children and adults. It is one of the first skills we learn, one of the first activities we love, and being able to spend some time coloring is always going to put a smile on your face. It is much more than a fun activity though. It helps with our emotional state. The world is a chaotic, stressful and confusing place. We all need time to be able to focus on something calming and relaxing. A world that colors is a happy world!

There are YouTube channels devoted to people watching other people color. Mindfulness is an industry that shows no signs of diminishing, which is why the coloring games here at GamePix are so popular with our users and something we would urge all gamers to consider, even if they haven’t picked up a paintbrush since kindergarten!
