The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for children and grownups alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is essential to provide children an opportunity to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Despite 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 cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later start to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Focusing on a single task for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time comes around, and the kid has to respect the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will mention for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards an effective scholastic profession for many children. For many children coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication truths, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it provides children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
