I love coloring, even now that am Kids . Back then, coloring is part of our discipline exercise – coloring and not crossing each lines is a challenge, but I made it!
I’m a first grade teacher. For creativity, I agree that encouraging kids to create their own art is superior. I guess I don’t see coloring pages as competing with the goal of creativity, though. Most kids love to color – there’s something calming about it. In my classroom, it’s an activity kids can choose at certain times. Many of my kids choose to color when I’m reading aloud a chapter book. It’s a mindless activity that doesn’t compete with listening, and for some kids, having something to do with their hands enhances their ability to listen.
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.
I agree with every point you have mentioned for coloring for toddlers. Even I have seen many people adapt to this method, and the results which they are getting, are in their favor. Coloring rules!!!
These are all things we do when we write. Being able to control a crayon and get it to do what you want directly corresponds to being able to write with a pen or pencil.
These Valentines coloring pages are perfect for kids and kids-at-heart – everyone loves to color! Print out a Valentine’s Day coloring page or two, grab some colored pencils, markers, or crayons, and unwind with the therapeutic benefits of coloring – did you know that they say that coloring actually provides the same benefits as meditation? Increase your focus, clarity, and mood while having fun at the same time!
