The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for children and adults alike to reveal 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 very important to give children a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is healing. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many children learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later start to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor skills
7) Focus - Taking note of a single job for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or preschooler may doodle all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently 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 huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the kid has to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the primary step towards a successful scholastic 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, finding out the reproduction facts, and so forth. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it supplies children with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and help them not to quit so quickly, when something brand-new comes along.
