The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (paper), is a method for kids and grownups 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 provide kids a possibility to express themselves, and not all kids express themselves through words and through writing, many usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for lots of people (myself consisted of) coloring is restorative. Regardless of whether it's doodling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and cool down, after the tensions of a day at school or work.
4) Grip/Control - many kids find out how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by very first learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles required for penmanship later on start to be developed while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Paying attention to a single task for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Borders - Another thing that kids learn from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a young child or young child might scribble all over a coloring sheet, without any respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will start to appreciate those lines, and make an effort to color in between them. While I motivate blank paper coloring totally free expression as often as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their very first direct exposure to printed boundaries. This early direct exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge assistance when handwriting time happens, and the kid has to appreciate the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Milestone - This is the last little "importance" of coloring that I will point out in the meantime, which is that coloring in the lines is a turning point, a sense of accomplishment, the first step towards a successful academic profession for many kids. For many kids coloring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10, counting to 100, reciting the alphabet, discovering the reproduction truths, etc. It's a turning point that states "yes I can" do whatever I stumble upon, and it provides 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 react. This sense of accomplishment will carry them through life, and help them not to give up so quickly, when something new comes along.
