The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for children and adults alike to express themselves. You can tell 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 very important to give children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and cool 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 very first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later start to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single task for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as often as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed borders. This early direct exposure to borders in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the child needs to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will point out in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards an effective scholastic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication realities, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it offers children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is often quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so easily, when something brand-new occurs.
