The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a way for kids and grownups alike to express themselves. You can tell a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is necessary to provide kids a possibility to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, wind down, 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 first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single task 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 gain from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in 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 first direct exposure to printed limits. This early direct exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial aid when handwriting time comes around, and the kid needs to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will mention in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards an effective scholastic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is simply as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the multiplication truths, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps 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 help them not to give up so easily, when something new occurs.
