The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for children and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is essential 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) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and relax, 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 knowing 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 - Paying attention to a single job for a length of time is essential for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will begin to appreciate 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 preschoolers 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 assistance when handwriting time comes around, and the kid has to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, 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, discovering the multiplication truths, etc. 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 frequently fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something new occurs.
