The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a way for kids and adults alike to express themselves. You can tell a lot about the method an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is necessary to offer kids an opportunity to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, lots of use art.
2) Color acknowledgment
3) Treatment - for many people (myself included) coloring is restorative. Despite whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest photo ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of 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 needed for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single job for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept limits. While a young child or preschooler may doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the kid gets older, they will begin to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring free of charge expression as often as possible, for lots of preschoolers 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 comes around, and the kid needs to appreciate the limits of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will point out for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the first step towards a successful academic career for lots of kids. For lots of kids coloring in the lines is just as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the multiplication truths, etc. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I come across, and it offers kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and helps them to feel accepted in a society that is often quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will carry them through life, and help them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
