The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for children and grownups alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is important to give children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is healing. 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, wind down, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later begin to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Focusing on a single job for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or preschooler might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to appreciate 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 many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time happens, and the child needs to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards an effective academic profession for many children. For many children coloring in the lines is simply as essential 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 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 quickly, when something brand-new comes along.
