The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), 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, etc. It is very important to provide kids a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, wind down, and relax, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later start to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single job for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as typically as possible, for many young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a huge aid when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards an effective academic career for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction realities, etc. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is typically quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so quickly, when something new comes along.
