The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for kids and adults 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 utilize, etc. It is essential to offer kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single task for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or young child might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (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 encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed boundaries. This early direct exposure to boundaries in print, will be a substantial assistance when handwriting time occurs, and the kid needs to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards a successful academic career for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction truths, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it provides kids 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 achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
