The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for children and adults alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the method an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is necessary to offer children a possibility to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. 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 calm down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job for a length of time is essential for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that children gain 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 respect for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as often as possible, for many 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 occurs, and the child needs to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards a successful academic career for many children. For many children coloring in the lines is just as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction realities, and so forth. It's a milestone that states "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 often quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and help them not to quit so quickly, when something new occurs.
