The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for children and grownups 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 use, etc. It is essential to give children an opportunity to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, wind down, and relax, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later on start to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as typically as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a substantial help when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the primary step towards a successful academic profession for many children. For many children coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I encounter, and it supplies children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is typically quick to judge, and slow to react. This sense of accomplishment will carry them through life, and help them not to quit so quickly, when something brand-new comes along.
