The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for children and grownups alike to express themselves. You can inform 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 children a possibility to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, lots of usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of children learn 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) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice 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 children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for lots of young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed boundaries. This early direct exposure to boundaries in print, will be a big help when handwriting time comes around, and the kid needs to respect the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will point out 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 lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction truths, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it provides children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something new comes along.
