The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for kids and grownups alike to express themselves. You can tell a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is very important to give kids a possibility to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, lots of usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, wind down, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of 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 start to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single job for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or young child may doodle all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as often as possible, for lots of young children 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 aid when handwriting time occurs, and the kid needs to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards an effective scholastic profession for lots of kids. For lots of kids coloring in the lines is just as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction truths, etc. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is often fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will carry them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
