The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a way 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 utilize, and so on. It is necessary to give children a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "best photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, unwind, and relax, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking notice 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 children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child may doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will begin to respect 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 very first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a big assistance when handwriting time occurs, and the kid has to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will point out in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards an effective academic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is simply as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction realities, etc. It's a milestone that states "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, 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 achievement will carry them through life, and help them not to quit so easily, when something brand-new occurs.
