The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for kids and adults alike to express 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 a chance to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, lots of usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of kids learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice of 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 photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for lots of young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a substantial assistance when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will discuss for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards an effective academic career for lots of kids. For lots of kids coloring in the lines is just as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication truths, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it supplies kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and help them not to quit so quickly, when something new comes along.
