The advantages of coloring pages:
1) Self expression - coloring on a blank "canvas" (notepad), is a method for kids and grownups alike to reveal themselves. You can inform a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, and so on. It is necessary to offer kids a chance to reveal themselves, and not all kids reveal themselves through words and through writing, lots of usage art.
2) Color recognition
3) Therapy - for many people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Despite whether it's scribbling, or coloring the "finest image ever", coloring can be a method to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, unwind, and calm down, after the stresses 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 learning how to hold a crayon. The little muscles needed for penmanship later on begin to be established while coloring.
6) Structure motor skills
7) Focus - Taking notice of a single task for a length of time is required for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one's life.
8) Limits - Another thing that kids gain from coloring pages, with preprinted images on them, is how to accept borders. While a toddler or preschooler may scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no regard for the borders (lines on the coloring page), as the kid ages, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage blank paper coloring free of charge expression as frequently as possible, for lots of preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first exposure to printed borders. This early exposure to borders in print, will be a substantial aid when handwriting time occurs, and the kid needs to respect the borders of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
9) Turning point - This is the last little "significance" of coloring that I will discuss in the meantime, and that is that coloring in the lines is a milestone, a sense of accomplishment, the initial step towards a successful scholastic profession 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, discovering the multiplication facts, etc. It's a milestone that states "yes I can" do whatever I discover, and it supplies kids 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 accomplishment will bring them through life, and assist them not to give up so quickly, when something brand-new occurs.
