The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for children and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can inform 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 essential to provide children a chance to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best image 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 - numerous children learn 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 on start to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
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) Borders - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, 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 frequently as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial aid when handwriting time occurs, and the child needs to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - 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 accomplishment, the initial step towards a successful academic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as essential 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 come across, and it supplies children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will carry them through life, and help them not to quit so quickly, when something new comes along.
