The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for kids 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 use, and so on. It is very important to offer kids a possibility to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, lots of usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is healing. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of kids discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently as possible, for lots of young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very 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 appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will point out in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards an effective academic career for lots of kids. For lots of kids coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication realities, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and help them not to quit so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
