The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for kids and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can tell a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is important to offer kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is restorative. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later start to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - 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 kid ages, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring for free expression as frequently as possible, for numerous 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 huge help when handwriting time happens, and the kid needs to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will mention for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the first step towards an effective scholastic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication realities, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it offers kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so easily, when something brand-new comes along.
