The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for kids and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can tell 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 very important to give kids a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for many people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids learn 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 begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single task for a length of time is essential for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as often as possible, for many young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed limits. This early direct exposure to limits in print, will be a big assistance 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 in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the initial step towards a successful scholastic profession for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is simply as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction realities, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it supplies kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is often quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something brand-new occurs.
