The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for children and grownups 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 use, and so on. It is necessary to offer children a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, wind down, and calm down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single job for a length of time is needed 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 borders. While a young child or preschooler might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally free expression as often as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the kid has to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will point out for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards a successful academic profession for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is simply as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the multiplication facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it provides children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is often fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something brand-new comes along.
