The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a way for children and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can tell a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is essential to provide children an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "best image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later on start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Focusing on a single job for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the borders (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 totally free expression as frequently as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed borders. This early direct exposure to borders in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time comes around, and the kid has to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will discuss for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards a successful academic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction truths, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it offers children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and help them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new comes along.
