The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a way 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 use, and so on. It is important to provide children an opportunity 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 therapeutic. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the tensions 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 needed for penmanship later start to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single task for a length of time is essential 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 preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently as possible, for many young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a big assistance when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will point out for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the first step towards a successful scholastic profession for many children. For many children coloring in the lines is simply as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction truths, and so forth. It's a milestone that states "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it provides 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 give up so quickly, when something new comes along.
