The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for children and grownups alike to express themselves. You can tell a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is necessary to offer children a possibility to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image 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 children find out 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 on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Focusing on a single task for a length of time is essential for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently as possible, for numerous preschoolers 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 comes around, and the kid needs to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - 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 first step towards an effective scholastic profession for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the multiplication facts, etc. It's a turning point that states "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 fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and help them not to give up so easily, when something new occurs.
