The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for children and grownups alike to express themselves. You can tell a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is necessary to give children a possibility to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, lots of usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Regardless of whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and relax, after the tensions 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 first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later begin to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking note of a single task for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child may doodle all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will begin to appreciate 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 young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial aid when handwriting time comes around, and the kid has to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the initial step towards an effective academic career for lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is just as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction truths, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I discover, 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 accomplishment will carry them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new comes along.
