Hot Glue & Coloring

Coloring within the lines can become a frustrating skill. Some students have greater difficulty seeing the difference in space. Other students have difficulty with controlled wrist movements. No matter the reason there are techniques that can help. Select coloring pages that are simple with thick lines. I would suggest 1 large item on a page work towards 4 items on a page. If the lines are not thick go over them with a marker. Next go over the lines with hot glue. Now when the child colors they will bump into the a physical barrier which over time will slow them down and make them pay more attention to the lines. You can also use hot glue for students that are learning to write. On the lines for writing create hot glue lines. Begin practicing simple lines or zig zags and work up to letters.
