The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a way for children and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can tell a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is necessary to provide children an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Despite 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, wind down, and relax, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children 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 start to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single task for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as often as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a big aid when handwriting time comes around, and the kid 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 milestone, a sense of achievement, the first step towards a successful scholastic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the multiplication realities, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it provides children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is often fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
