The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for kids and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is essential to give kids an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids find out 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 begin to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Focusing on 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 kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or preschooler may doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the borders (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 motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed borders. This early direct exposure to borders in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time occurs, and the kid has to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards a successful academic career for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it provides kids 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 react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so quickly, when something new occurs.
