The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for kids and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can inform 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 kids a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "best picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Focusing on a single job for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child might doodle all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as often as possible, for many young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time occurs, and the child has to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards an effective academic 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 truths, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is often quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will carry them through life, and help them not to give up so easily, when something brand-new comes along.
