The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for children and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the method a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is necessary to provide children a possibility to reveal themselves, and not all children reveal themselves through words and through writing, numerous usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Treatment - for many individuals (myself included) coloring is healing. No matter whether it's doodling, or coloring the "best picture ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a hectic morning of school work, unwind, and relax, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - numerous children learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first knowing how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor abilities
7) Focus - Focusing on a single task for a length of time is essential for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Boundaries - Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with preprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any regard for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child ages, they will start to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring for free expression as frequently as possible, for numerous preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time occurs, and the child has to respect the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will mention in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of achievement, the initial step towards an effective scholastic profession for numerous children. For numerous children coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, finding out the reproduction facts, etc. It's a turning point that says "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it offers children with pride, a sense of self worth, and assists them to feel accepted in a society that is frequently fast to judge, and slow to respond. This sense of achievement will bring them through life, and assist them not to quit so easily, when something brand-new comes along.
