The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a way for kids and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is essential to give kids a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "best photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later begin to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single task for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child may doodle all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as often as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a big aid when handwriting time happens, and the child needs to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the initial step towards a successful academic career for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction truths, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it supplies 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 accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
