The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a way 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 essential to give children a possibility to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many children learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later start to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single task for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as frequently as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed borders. This early direct exposure to borders in print, will be a substantial help when handwriting time occurs, and the kid needs 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 point out in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards an effective academic career 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 multiplication realities, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it offers 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 react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to quit so easily, when something new comes along.
