Coloring a picture can help your children to recognize line, perspective, color, hue, shape and form. Your children also learn to recognize patterns. This, eventually, aids your children to decide on what colors he will use in their next picture.
Boundaries – Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with pre-printed 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 blank paper coloring for free expression as often as possible, for many preschoolers pre-printed coloring pages are their first 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 pre-printed handwriting lines on the paper.
Coloring allows children to express their individuality through color selection and medium. It’s interesting to observe how much pressure they apply, the color choices they make, and whether they color loosely or tightly. Everyone is different and so is each masterpiece. One study also showed that using coloring pages can increase the novelty and variety displayed in the pictures they create.
