The advantages 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 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 give children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is healing. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method 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 children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by 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 - 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) Borders - Another thing that children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or preschooler may doodle all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to appreciate 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 numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial aid when handwriting time happens, and the child has to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will point out in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards an effective academic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication truths, etc. 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 accomplishment will carry them through life, and help them not to give up so easily, when something brand-new comes along.
