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 necessary to provide kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, wind down, and relax, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single job for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or preschooler might scribble 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 appreciate 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 many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial assistance when handwriting time comes around, 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 turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards an effective scholastic profession for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction truths, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so easily, when something new occurs.
