The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for kids and grownups 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, etc. It is very important to give kids an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later start to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single job for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or young child might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no regard 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 for free expression as frequently as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed borders. This early direct exposure to borders in print, will be a big assistance when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will point out in the meantime, 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 kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is simply as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction realities, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, and it supplies kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists 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 easily, when something brand-new comes along.
