The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for children and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can tell a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is essential to provide children a chance to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, lots of usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is restorative. 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 calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single job for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or young child might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently as possible, for lots of preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time happens, and the kid needs to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards a successful academic career for lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the multiplication realities, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, and it offers children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something brand-new occurs.
