Awesome New Coloring Pages For Kids

1. The first benefit that we think of is the grip and control. Because many children learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.

2. The focus: When coloring requires a child to concentrate to do the right thing with the color of a position to fill. That is also important task for all sorts of things throughout one's life.

3. Improves motor skills

The act of coloring can help to improve motor skills in young children. The actions, motions and precise grip involved in coloring can aid in the development of the muscles of the fingers, hands and wrist. Fine motor skill development can help children write more skillfully as well as manipulate small objects. They can then build on these skills to become better typists and more adept in sports and other activities.

4. Prepares them for school

Each child is born and raised must be studied. Children’s education takes place in a classroom with a fair amount of structure. Lessons are issued on paper via assignments, tests and other written course work. Coloring sheets, books and pages can be integral in preparing kids for the more structured work on paper ahead of them.

5. Color awareness, recognition and discernment

Kids learn the names of colors through the color of them, and coloring on coloring pages fosters practice and awareness of primary and common colors as well as more nuanced color awareness of lesser-known, more subtle colors in a direct hands-on manner.

6. Self expression – coloring on a blank "canvas" (piece of paper), is a way for children and adults alike to express themselves.  You can tell a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc.  It is important to give children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, many use art.

7. Improved Focus and Hand to Eye Coordination

The act of holding crayons, choosing colors, implementing the color in the ideal spot and even sharpening crayons can all help with cultivating strong hand-eye coordination in youngsters.

8. Boundaries 

Each color page will have many different color boundaries. So,  is how to accept boundaries.  Most 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. And adhering to boundaries is an important part of juvenile and adolescent development. Even if he or she becomes a renegade artist later in life, it benefits all children to start out knowing the rules before breaking away. 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 preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.

9. Improved Confidence and Self Esteem

Encourage child coloring regularly and completing projects boosts a child’s sense of accomplishment and pride in themselves. The ability to complete a task successfully builds self esteem and confidence in young children. 

10. Self-Expression

Every human being expresses themselves differently, and many children are visual in nature. Coloring is a fertile vehicle for self expression as children make color decisions and flesh out the boundaries of a coloring page, sheet or book.

11. Therapy and Stress Relief

Coloring is also calming and therapeutic for kids, especially if they have no other outlet for unpleasant or confusing emotions. Even kids who fall into the “normal” range of emotional health can benefit from processing their feelings, frustrations and emotions though the simple but profound act of coloring.
