The benefits of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for children and adults alike to reveal themselves. You can tell a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they utilize, etc. It is very important to provide children an opportunity to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous use art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for many people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, wind down, and cool down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later begin to be established while coloring.
6) Building motor abilities
7) Focus - Taking note of a single task for a length of time is needed for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that children gain from coloring pages, with preprinted photos on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler may doodle all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the boundaries (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 encourage blank paper coloring totally free expression as typically as possible, for numerous young children pre-printed coloring pages are their first direct exposure to printed boundaries. This early direct exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge aid when handwriting time comes around, and the kid needs to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will mention for now, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards a successful academic profession for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is simply as crucial as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, learning the reproduction facts, 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 assists them to feel accepted in a society that is typically quick to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of accomplishment will carry them through life, and assist them not to give up so easily, when something new comes along.
