The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a way 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 use, and so on. It is very important to offer children an opportunity 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 people (myself included) coloring is restorative. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of children learn 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 established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice 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 gain from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as typically as possible, for lots of young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a big aid when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to respect the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards a successful scholastic career for lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the multiplication facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "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 typically fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
