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 inform a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is important to offer kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, unwind, and relax, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later on start to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single task for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will start to respect 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 many young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a big assistance when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will point out for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards a successful scholastic career for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction realities, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it supplies kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists 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 assist them not to give up so easily, when something new occurs.
