The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for children and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can tell a lot about the method an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is necessary to offer children an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Regardless of whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "best picture ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, unwind, and relax, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring for free expression as frequently as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed borders. This early direct exposure to borders in print, will be a big help when handwriting time happens, and the child has to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will mention for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards a successful scholastic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is simply as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it supplies 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 accomplishment will carry them through life, and help them not to give up so easily, when something brand-new occurs.
