The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for children and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can tell a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is necessary to provide children a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later on start to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single task for a length of time is essential for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as frequently as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a substantial help when handwriting time occurs, and the child needs to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" 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 initial step towards an effective academic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it provides children 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 react. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so easily, when something new comes along.
