The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for kids and grownups 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 utilize, and so on. It is essential to give kids an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best picture ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, wind down, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later begin to be established while coloring.
6) Structure 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 kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or preschooler may doodle all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as typically as possible, for many young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a huge help 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 "importance" of coloring that I will mention for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards an effective 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, finding out the multiplication facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it supplies 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 give up so easily, when something brand-new occurs.
