The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a method for kids and adults alike to express themselves. You can inform a lot about the way an individual is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, and so on. It is important to provide 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) Therapy - for many people (myself included) coloring is restorative. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "best photo ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - lots of kids learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles required for penmanship later start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice 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 kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept limits. While a toddler or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the limits (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for lots of preschoolers 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 happens, 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 mention for now, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the first step towards an effective scholastic profession for lots of kids. For lots of kids coloring in the lines is just as essential 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 come across, and it provides kids with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is typically fast to judge, and slow to react. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and help them not to quit so easily, when something brand-new occurs.
