The advantages 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 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 use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best picture ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job for a length of time is necessary 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 boundaries. While a young child or young child might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect 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 between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as often as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed boundaries. This early direct exposure to boundaries in print, will be a substantial assistance when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the first step towards a successful academic career for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction facts, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it offers 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 achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
