The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for kids and adults alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is necessary to offer kids an opportunity to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, wind down, and calm down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or preschooler might doodle all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring for free expression as typically as possible, for many young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial assistance when handwriting time happens, and the child needs to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will mention in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards a successful academic profession for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the multiplication realities, and so forth. It's a milestone that states "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is typically fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something new occurs.
