The advantages 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 use, etc. It is essential to offer kids a possibility to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later start to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single job for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the borders (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 preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time occurs, and the kid needs to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will discuss for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards a successful scholastic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction truths, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, and it offers kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is often fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and help them not to quit so easily, when something brand-new comes along.
