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 express themselves. You can inform a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is important to offer kids a possibility to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, wind down, and cool down, after the stresses 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 little muscles needed for penmanship later on start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single task 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 learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or preschooler may doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring for free 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 huge aid when handwriting time comes around, and the child needs to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will point out for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards an effective scholastic profession for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is just as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication truths, and so forth. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it offers kids 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 achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so easily, when something new occurs.
