The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for kids and grownups alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is important to provide kids an opportunity to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single task 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 photos on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a big aid when handwriting time happens, and the kid needs to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards an effective scholastic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is just as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction facts, etc. It's a milestone that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is typically fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
