The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), 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, and so on. It is very important to give kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the stresses 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 learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later start to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
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) Limits - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring for free expression as typically as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a big aid when handwriting time occurs, and the kid has to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will point out for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the initial step towards a successful academic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is just as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication realities, etc. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is typically fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to quit so quickly, when something new comes along.
