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 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 essential to provide children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children discover 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 start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single job for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring for free expression as frequently 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 occurs, and the kid needs to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will point out for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards an effective academic profession for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the multiplication facts, etc. It's a milestone 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 frequently quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will carry them through life, and assist them not to quit so easily, when something new occurs.
