The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a way for children and adults alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the method an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is very important to offer children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, lots of use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "best picture ever", coloring can be a way 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 - lots of children discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later on start to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job 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 images on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in 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 direct exposure to printed boundaries. This early direct exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge aid when handwriting time occurs, and the child needs to appreciate the boundaries 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 turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards an effective academic profession for lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction truths, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it supplies children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something new comes along.
