The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for kids and adults alike to reveal 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 very important to provide kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is healing. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and relax, after the tensions 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 very 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 - Taking notice of a single task 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 respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a big help when handwriting time occurs, and the child needs to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will mention for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards an effective scholastic 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 multiplication truths, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically 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 brand-new occurs.
