The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for kids and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is very important to provide kids a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic early morning of school work, unwind, and relax, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very 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) Limits - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child may doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid grows older, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring for free expression as typically as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a big aid when handwriting time comes around, and the kid needs to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will mention for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of achievement, the first step towards an effective academic career for numerous kids. For numerous kids coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication truths, etc. It's a milestone that says "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is typically quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and help them not to quit so easily, when something new comes along.
