The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for kids and grownups alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is essential to offer kids an opportunity to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many people (myself included) coloring is healing. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids find out 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 start to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
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 kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will start 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 young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed borders. This early direct exposure to borders in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time happens, and the child has to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the initial step towards a successful academic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction realities, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, and it offers kids 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 respond. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so quickly, when something new occurs.
