The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for children and adults 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 important to offer children a chance to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many people (myself included) coloring is healing. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children learn 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 on start to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or preschooler may doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring for 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 substantial assistance when handwriting time comes around, and the child has 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 mention in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards an effective academic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the multiplication facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it provides children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something new occurs.
