When people first started accessing the Internet, there were only a few sites that offered free, printable coloring pages. Most of their offerings were rough drawings or produced very small pictures. Now, however, there are a multitude of sites that will let you print high-quality coloring sheets on just about any subject you might choose.
All kids like to color, but there are important reasons to encourage and guide this activity beyond the simple hedonistic impetus to have fun.
Apart from giving your kids a creative way of remaining engaged and passing free time, these coloring pages have quite a few other advantages. They are, for one thing, free to download and print, hence all you need is a computer, an internet connection, and a printer.
Apart from the great amount of emotional satisfaction that these coloring pages will provide your kids with, they will also help in the development of their finer motor skills, such as finger dexterity, eye-hand coordination etc. and increase their mental capacity, by developing their concentration power, determination, and the likes.
Remember how much you loved coloring when you were a child? You’d snuggle down into another world with your coloring books and crayons, and time would pass almost unnoticed. Children today love to color just as much, plus we now know that coloring is an excellent pre-reading activity that helps children develop the eye-and-hand coordination they will need to write. Coloring books are still available in the stores if you like, but you will also find a ton of coloring pages to print in the Internet which will provide your child with a much wider range of subjects to choose from than you’ll find in books.
One of the benefits of coloring pages teaching children to identify different colors. While every child should know the basic red, green, blue, pink, yellow, the common colors, there is good reason to teach them the names of more obscure hues. Recent research shows that vocabulary helps people tell colors apart. Comparing different linguistic groups scientists have shown that if a language does not have a name for a color then the speaker has a more difficult time differentiating similar shades of color. If a child is never taught to be able to recognize the difference between brilliant white and eggshell (or rose and pink, fuchsia and red, etc.) then as adult they may never be able to tell the two apart. So discussing and pointing out the subtle differences among the big box of crayons is really an important cognitive opportunity.
