The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for children and grownups alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is important to provide children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, lots of use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic early 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 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 - Taking note of a single task for a length of time is essential for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as often as possible, for lots of 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 aid when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will point out in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards a successful academic profession for lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction truths, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it offers children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is often quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to quit so easily, when something brand-new comes along.
