The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for children and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the method an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is necessary to offer children an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, lots of use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and relax, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of children discover 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 developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single task for a length of time is essential 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 limits. While a toddler or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently as possible, for lots of young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed limits. This early direct exposure to limits in print, will be a huge aid when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will discuss for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards a successful academic career for lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction realities, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it offers children 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 respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and help them not to quit so easily, when something new occurs.
