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 tell a lot about the method an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is essential to offer children an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "best image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, wind down, and relax, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single job 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 learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any 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 between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally 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 substantial help when handwriting time occurs, 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 mention in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the first step towards a successful scholastic profession for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction truths, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it supplies children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so easily, when something new occurs.
