The advantages 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 method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is necessary to provide kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - 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 hectic morning of school work, unwind, and relax, 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 first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job for a length of time is needed 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 young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring for free expression as frequently as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time happens, and the child has 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 in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards an effective academic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction realities, etc. It's a turning point that states "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 quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something new comes along.
