The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a way for kids 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 utilize, and so on. It is essential to provide kids an opportunity to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is restorative. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, wind down, 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 little muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure 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) Limits - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally free expression as often as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed boundaries. This early direct exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time occurs, and the kid has to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the initial step towards a successful academic career for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction truths, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is often fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will carry them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something new occurs.
