The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a way for children and adults alike to express themselves. You can tell a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is very important to give children an opportunity to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, wind down, and cool down, 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 first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later on start to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single job for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring for free expression as frequently as possible, for numerous young children 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 occurs, and the kid needs 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 point out in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the initial 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, discovering the multiplication truths, etc. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it offers children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and help them not to give up so easily, when something brand-new comes along.
