The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for kids and grownups 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 essential to provide kids a chance to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest picture 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 - numerous kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Taking note of a single task for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, 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 numerous preschoolers 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 comes around, and the kid needs to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards a successful scholastic career for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the multiplication facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something new occurs.
