The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for children and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is necessary to give children a chance to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, lots of usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is healing. Regardless of whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image 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 - lots of children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure 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 learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently as possible, for lots of preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial aid when handwriting time occurs, and the kid needs to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - 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 academic profession for lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it offers children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something new comes along.
