The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for kids and adults 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 use, etc. It is very important to offer kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many people (myself included) coloring is restorative. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, wind down, and calm down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single job for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in 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 boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a big aid when handwriting time happens, and the child needs to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will mention in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards a successful academic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction facts, and so forth. It's a milestone that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists 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 assist them not to give up so quickly, when something new comes along.
