The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for kids and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can tell a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is necessary to provide kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "best image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later on begin 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 kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as typically as possible, for many young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed limits. This early direct exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial aid when handwriting time occurs, and the kid has to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will mention in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards a successful scholastic profession for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction realities, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it supplies kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so easily, when something new comes along.
