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.
The last benefit I would like to discuss, actually consists of two advantages. Coloring allows your child’s creativity to blossom, but it also provides insight into a child’s emotions, and often child psychologists will utilize this tool to learn more about a child’s feelings or frame of mind at a particular time. This is another great benefit of coloring for children, it can help you to understand how exactly your child feels at any given time.
We have yet to discuss the benefit that your child will be learning about the different colors as they color their pages. And the more exposure your child has to coloring, the more they will learn about the typical colors of objects, and they will begin to choose specific colors for specific items, such as red apples, or green leaves.
