Children with disabilities gain benefits similar to those of other children because it's an enjoyable activity for them as well. They gain benefits from the physical act of painting and creating something beautiful just like a typical child and benefits the development of their cognitive abilities by focusing on colors, shape recognition, learning sequential steps that lead to a final product.

In fact, children with autism and ADHD have shown benefits in their socialization skills after engaging in art related activities such as paint by numbers. Paint by Numbers benefits kids socially too because they get to be creative while working on their own or with others. This provides them opportunities for teamwork.

When children interact with an activity that has bright colors, a structure, and an end goal, their self-esteem benefits. Sooner or later they will begin to believe that with hard work they can accomplish anything and contribute back to society in a meaningful way. It is also known that people who enjoy doing art are less likely to get bored easily which benefits them socially because busy children have more friends.

There's a child in all of us, so we encourage adults to engage in fun activities. Paint by numbers benefits everyone, from children to adults of all ages.

Your creative juices are sure to flow and perhaps you will even surprise yourself with what you are able to create when following simple directions.
