The advantages 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 tell a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is necessary to offer children a chance to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and cool 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 first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Focusing on a single task 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 gain from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or preschooler might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed limits. This early direct exposure to limits in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the kid needs to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will mention in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the initial step towards a successful academic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction facts, and so forth. It's a milestone that states "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, and it supplies 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 accomplishment will carry them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new comes along.
