The benefits 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 tell a lot about the method 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 possibility to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, lots of usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Regardless of whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, unwind, and relax, 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) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Focusing on a single job for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently as possible, for lots of preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed borders. This early direct 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) Milestone - 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 initial step towards an effective academic career for lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the multiplication realities, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it supplies children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
