The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for kids and grownups alike to express 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 essential to provide kids a chance to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Focusing on a single task for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept borders. While a young child or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently 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 occurs, and the kid needs to appreciate the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards a successful academic career for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is just as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
