The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for kids and grownups 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, and so on. It is important to give kids an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and relax, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
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) Boundaries - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no regard 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 between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally free expression as often as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed limits. This early direct exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial assistance when handwriting time happens, and the kid needs to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards an effective academic career for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is just as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication truths, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it offers kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is often fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something new comes along.
