The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for kids and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is important to give kids a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself consisted of) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later start to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single task for a length of time is required 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 limits. While a toddler or young child might doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (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 motivate blank paper coloring for free expression as typically as possible, for many young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed limits. This early exposure to limits in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time happens, and the child needs to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "value" of coloring that I will mention in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards a successful scholastic career for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is just as essential 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 stumble upon, and it supplies kids 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 respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and assist them not to quit so quickly, when something new comes along.
