The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for kids and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the method an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is very important to give kids an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids discover 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 start to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single task for a length of time is essential for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or young child might doodle all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed limits. This early direct exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial help when handwriting time comes around, and the child needs to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will mention in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards a successful academic profession for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is just as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the multiplication realities, and so forth. It's a milestone that states "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, and it supplies kids 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 carry them through life, and help them not to quit so easily, when something new occurs.
