The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for kids and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can tell 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 offer kids an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is healing. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best picture ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy early morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later on begin to be developed while coloring.
6) Building 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) Boundaries - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or preschooler may doodle all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as often as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a huge aid when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - 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 accomplishment, the first step towards an effective scholastic 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, finding out the multiplication realities, 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 often quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will bring them through life, and help them not to give up so quickly, when something new comes along.
