The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for children and adults alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is essential to give children a possibility to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for many people (myself included) coloring is restorative. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, unwind, and relax, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single job for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child grows older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally free expression as frequently as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed limits. This early direct exposure to limits in print, will be a huge aid when handwriting time occurs, and the child has to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will mention in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards an effective scholastic profession for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the multiplication facts, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it offers children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something new occurs.
