Coloring pages can provide enrichment by providing pictures of numbers, letters, animals, and words, so that your child will expand their knowledge in a number of areas. Your child will receive the greatest educational benefit when the coloring pages bring all of these elements together, such as when there is a picture of an animal with it’s name written on the page, or when numbers are shown with the name of the number written out, or even a two-sided coloring page with one side showing the letter, number or word, and the other side of the page depicting an animal whose shape resembles the letter or number on the previous page.
Coloring in a picture will command your child’s full attention, as they concentrate on completing their work, and having the finished product show that they have done their best. This is a welcome assistance for parents who struggle to provide their children with experiences that will captivate their attention, only to find that their little minds and bodies start wandering after only a short time. So as a parent, you gain a short respite as your child works on their coloring page, your child gets to participate in a fun activity that teaches them as well. Which leads me to the next point.
Many parents like to print out enough to make small coloring books. It is faster than you think and a great gift that you can give to your child. Plus, you can feel great knowing that they will be using the pictures that they really like. As their parent you already know what will appeal to them the most and make them very excited.
