The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for children and adults alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the method an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is important to provide children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, lots of usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for lots of people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. No matter whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "best image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of children discover how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Focusing on a single task for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child 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 begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as typically as possible, for lots of 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 substantial aid when handwriting time occurs, and the child needs to respect the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will point out for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the first step towards a successful scholastic profession for lots of children. For lots of children coloring in the lines is simply as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the multiplication realities, etc. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it offers children 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 respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so easily, when something new comes along.
