The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for children and grownups alike to express themselves. You can tell 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 very important to provide children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many people (myself included) coloring is healing. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later on start to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking note of 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 pictures on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as typically as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a substantial aid when handwriting time comes around, and the kid needs to appreciate 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 for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards a successful academic profession for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction truths, and so forth. It's a milestone that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it provides children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so quickly, when something new comes along.
