The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for children and grownups alike to reveal 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 very important to offer children a chance to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - 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 early morning of school work, unwind, and relax, 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 small muscles needed for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single job 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 photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or preschooler may doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, they will begin to appreciate 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 preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a big assistance when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will discuss for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the first step towards an effective academic profession for many children. For many children coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction truths, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it supplies children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new comes along.
