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.
Coloring requires coordination because you have to watch where you want to put the color. The less coordinated the motions of the colored are the more likely they are to scribble and put color outside of the lines.
Knowledge of colour, line, shape as well as other principles of art is taught early on through colouring sheets. It gives children a basis to start exploring when a white page can be ever so scary. As they build up experience from colouring they will begin to build up a preference of colour for future are pieces. Coloring allows children to create a imaginary world in their head, which without drawing would be impossible. Through colouring children can begin express themselves and their creative choices which can be honed later in their education.
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.
In addition to the fact that coloring sparks creativity and can relieve stress, it also offers a number of educational benefits for kids, including improving their motor skills, handwriting, and eye-hand coordination. But why not add to the educational benefits by introducing another level of learning?
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.
