The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for children and grownups alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is necessary to give children a possibility to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many children discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
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) Boundaries - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the child 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 frequently as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a big assistance when handwriting time occurs, and the child has to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will point out in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards a successful academic career for many children. For many children coloring in the lines is simply as essential as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication facts, and so forth. It's a milestone that states "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it offers children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something new occurs.
