The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for children and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can tell 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 children an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, wind down, and calm down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children discover 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 start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single job for a length of time is essential for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (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 motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as typically as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed boundaries. This early direct exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time happens, and the child needs to respect the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will point out for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards a successful academic career for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication truths, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it supplies children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists 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 quit so easily, when something new occurs.
