Notice the incomplete sentences at the bottom of the page? Your child can write his/her name on the blank to make it more personalized. So it’s like hitting two birds with one stone! Your child gets to color and practice writing his/her name, all in one page.

Focus – Paying attention to a single task for a length of time is necessary for coloring and for all sorts of things throughout one’s life.
Maleski’s company finds that children enjoy coloring with crayons because of their size and vibrant color choices. As an occupational therapist, Richards likes colored pencils because they can be sharpened to a nice point and accurately used in small spaces.
Boundaries – Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with reprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage scratch paper coloring as often as possible, so that children are free to express themselves, for many preschoolers this is their only exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to respect the boundaries of the reprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, colouring is a per-academic skill. In this simple activity, they get to practice and develop proper grip.
