The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a way for children and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can tell 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 children an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
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 children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as typically as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a big aid when handwriting time happens, and the child has to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the initial step towards a successful scholastic 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, learning the multiplication realities, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it offers children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something new occurs.
