The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method 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 utilize, etc. It is essential to give children a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, lots of use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for many people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Focusing on a single job for a length of time is required 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 borders. While a young child or young child might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as often as possible, for lots of young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a substantial help when handwriting time comes around, and the kid needs to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will point out in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards a successful scholastic profession for lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction realities, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it provides children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is often fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
