These children are little bundles of energy open to new experiences. However, with this much energy comes some disobedience.

“Red” children run around a lot. They are a tiny bit naughty and enjoy all kinds of adventures, especially when it comes to ignoring and breaking the rules.

Sometimes, they can take away toys from other kids and even break them. At the same time, they find praise and validation very important.

Parents’ main task is to direct a kid’s energy flow into something creative. By giving them tasks and small challenges, parents teach children to be calmer and more perseverant.

Black is a very gloomy color. Therefore, its appearance in a child’s drawings, usually startles parents. However, there is no need to be afraid, especially if a little one is 4-5 years old.

At this age, a kid chooses black because it is the most contrasting color against white paper.

However, if your little artist of always-unicorn-pink pictures suddenly starts to collect black and white pictures, you should start to pay attention to this matter. Such drawings can suggest troubles with friends or kids in kindergarten. Therefore, try very delicately and unobtrusively to find out the worries and fears that a little one has.


Kids who prefer grey are usually secretive, extremely reserved, and introverted. Usually, grey is a color chosen by kids, who spend most of their time surrounded by adults.

Also, grey color can appear if a little one is snowed under at school or other activities.
