. Coloring Pages. April 12th , 2020.
Well, if the coloring pages and books that Old People–those of us past the age of twenty-five–used back in the days before they invented weather and when we all knew what a telephone cord was are fading out of mind, they are being reborn on the Internet. Children’s coloring pages are all over the place online. A whole new dimension of coloring and drawing has been opened up with the advent of the Internet. When the Internet was still pretty new–anyone here old enough to remember those days? –only a few websites offered free, printable coloring pages, and most of these merely contained some rough sketches or produced teeny weeny pictures. But today one can find a multitude of websites from which you can print out high-quality coloring sheets on nearly any subject that you can imagine.
All kids like to color, but there are important reasons to encourage and guide this activity beyond the simple hedonistic impetus to have fun. Coloring Builds Fine Motor Skills ==> Perhaps the biggest benefit children get from coloring pages of animals or their favorite cartoon characters is the development of fine motor skills. This includes learning the proper way to hold the crayon, marker or colored pencil they are using to draw with. When supervising young children learning how to color use gentle instructions to encourage them to hold the writing implement near the tip, cradled between the tips of their thumb, index finger and middle finger. Many children grab the crayon in their fist. Correcting this improper usage is an important first step towards real penmanship. Beyond the skill of holding a crayon or pencil properly, learning to keep the lines drawn on the coloring pages is another example of fine motor skills. This is a more advanced concept, and may well take several years for the child to fully be able to accomplish, so only positive comments should be made on your youngsters coloring attempts in this regard. It is better to have them enjoy coloring and want to do it often then become discouraged by negative feedback and harsh criticisms.
Coloring books are a thing of the past. Kids today aren’t as thrilled by a basic coloring book as children a generation ago. That is because these children have been spoiled by all the fantastic new methods of coloring using the computer or with fancy markers and pens. While you might get away with a coloring book and crayons for a long car trip, don’t expect your school age children to sit quietly at the table coloring pictures the old fashioned way – there is a something better around, and they know it.
