The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for kids and grownups alike to express themselves. You can inform 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 important to provide kids an opportunity to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a method 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 kids learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Focusing on a single job for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or young child might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time occurs, and the kid needs to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will mention for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards a successful academic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the multiplication realities, 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 typically fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something new occurs.
