illustration title: Mother Nature by Ella Parry
Mother Earth is a common expression for the planet earth in a number of countries and regions, which reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit.
The Earth and its ecosystems are our home. In order to achieve a just balance among the economic, social, and environmental needs of present and future generations, it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth.
International Mother Earth Day is celebrated to remind each of us that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance.

why coloring is good for you!

Do you like colouring?  I do, I LOVE to colour and it’s one of my favorite activities.

When I was a child my mum always gave us (me and my little brother) a printed page to do 
colouring in our spare-time, I always thought this was just her way of keeping us occupied so 
mum could have some time to herself, being that we were always so demanding 
and wanted to play all day long, but little did I know – that mum 
was giving us pages to colour in for a very good reason!

One day, My brother and I decided to ask Dad that why mum always wanted us to do colouring. 
Dad told us that coluring in pictures and drawing have so many learning benefits for us (children). 
I guess my Mum thought if she told us it was more like learning than playing we may not 
want to colour, my mum is very very clever……….

Most children naturally love to draw and color and we actively encourage this in our children. 
Yet, sometime around “real school” age, we stop encouraging creative activities like coloring and 
drawing and instead encourage more structured academic activities. By adulthood, 
the idea of cracking open a coloring book seems almost laughable… except 
that researchers have been studying the benefits of this classic childhood activity 
for adults for over a decade.

Here are the benefits of colourng that I found online:

>> Colouring helps us practice holding a writing tool the correct way and its helps us develop our coordination and motor skills.

>> Colouring aids in hand-eye coordination and helps us to learn to color within the specified area.

>> Colouring helps us to develop the skill of patience and learn to focus on details when coloring.

>> Colouring is used as THERAPY because it helps us to relax and to be comfortable while creating a piece of art.

>> Colouring is a great tool to help us to learn the difference between images and colour. This is also one of the first steps to learning and understanding about new colours.

>> Colouring pages boosts our creativity - Being creative, and feeling free to experiment is something we need to experience,
it’s great for our growing minds.
