The process of one′s fingers moving back and forth as one colors is calming. It doesn′t require much thinking‐ you just pick a color, after that everything is already mechanical. That′s one of the reasons why teachers use this as a quiet time activity. In that brief moment, when your child is so focused on coloring, notice that his/her breathing is calmer and even. This is especially true for preschoolers. Coloring helps them cool down after an exhausting or exciting activity. Or when they are too excited for an upcoming event‐ say a trip, and they are too restless, I recommend coloring as a way to calm them down.
The sooner kids are exposed to the color wheel, the sooner they will learn to recognize different colors. By being exposed to coloring books on a daily basis, they will quickly and easily learn to tell the difference between various colors. Coloring pages offer kids the opportunity to learn about different hues and recognize different colors, as well as provide them with an excellent way of exploring different color combinations.
All of the aforementioned benefits certainly help kids prepare for school and different kinds of classroom activities. However, there are certain things that they can learn with the help of coloring pages that can help them develop their reading and math skills. The simple act of coloring can help a child learn about lines, shapes, forms, perspective, boundaries and patterns. By learning to recognize all of those things, especially different patterns, kids actually develop pre reading and pre math skills, which will undoubtedly help them later in school.
