The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a way for kids and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can tell a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is very important to offer kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many people (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 hectic early morning of school work, unwind, and relax, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Focusing on a single job for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as often as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time happens, and the child needs to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will mention 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 career for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is simply as essential 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 kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is often quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something new occurs.
