The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for children and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is very important to offer children a chance to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, wind down, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later start to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Focusing on a single job for a length of time is essential for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will start to respect 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 very first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a big help when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss 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 scholastic 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, learning the reproduction facts, etc. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, and it supplies children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is often quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something new comes along.
