The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a way for kids 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 necessary to give kids a chance to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, 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 very first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Focusing on a single task 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 photos on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as frequently as possible, for many young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a huge aid when handwriting time occurs, and the child needs to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will mention in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards an effective 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, learning the multiplication realities, etc. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it supplies kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so easily, when something new occurs.
