The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for kids and adults alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is important to give kids an opportunity to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, 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 very first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Focusing on a single job for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or young child may doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as typically as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a substantial help when handwriting time comes around, and the kid needs to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards a successful academic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it supplies kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something new comes along.
