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.
Young children often aren’t able to fully grasp the concept of what a ‘month’ is. Some are just starting to understand concepts of time such as ‘today’, ‘tomorrow’ and ‘yesterday’.

I love coloring activities. And most children do, too! That’s why I made COLORING PAGES FOR TODDLERS AND PRESCHOOLERS for today’s Freebie Friday!
As I’ve mentioned earlier, colouring is a per-academic skill. In this simple activity, they get to practice and develop proper grip.
