Coloring reduces stress and anxiety by relaxing the brain’s amygdala. It eases your child’s restless mind, allowing him an academic breather. Coloring is one of those activities that require both hemispheres of the brain to communicate with each other. Logic compels your child to stay inside the lines, while color perception uses the more creative side of the brain. The focus required to color opens up your child’s frontal lobe, which controls organizing and problem-solving.
Mystery Mosaics then becomes the perfect therapy for keeping hands busy and producing art while relaxing, focusing, and engaging parts of your child’s brain. The best part of Mystery Mosaics is the unknown. Your child will need to complete the pictures to discover the secret images hidden within each puzzle. Each of the Mystery Mosaics’ color-by-number pages features an intricate surprise scene. These ingenious secret images are revealed from famous landmarks to animals, landscapes, people, and more by coloring each numbered square. Your student will have absolutely no idea what each picture might turn out to be in the beginning. But by following the number guide, an incredible mosaic design will take shape!
Build high-level number-matching, concentration, patience, cognitive skills, spatial reasoning, and planning skills with Mystery Mosaics.
