The benefits 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 method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is very important to provide kids an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Therapy - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic 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 very first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later on start to be developed while coloring.
6) Building 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) Boundaries - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or young child may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally free expression as often as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed borders. This early direct exposure to borders in print, will be a substantial assistance when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" 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 a successful academic career for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is simply as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it supplies kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is often quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so easily, when something new occurs.
