Children see the benefit of finishing what they have started. This might sound so simple, but again, many children grow up not knowing that it’s important to see things through to the end. In my experience, most children love finishing color by number worksheets since they would like to see what the picture would look like if colored entirely. According to research, it takes an average of two months to create a habit. Imagine using color by number pages in your classroom just to develop the skill of seeing things through to the end the whole year. That’s one life skill that your students will be able to benefit from long after they have left your classroom.
By focusing on coloring different drawings of a coloring page, kids learn the skill of patience. They are relaxed during the entire process of coloring and focused on every line, color and shape and every other detail needed to bring their pictures to life. By being immersed in the act of coloring, not only do they develop a great eye for detail, but they also learn how to be patient. If they are patient until they finish the picture, it will become exactly what they had in mind all along. Consequently, they will feel a great sense of accomplishment. The ability of completing a task helps children build their self-esteem and confidence, which is why it is important that they color on a regular basis. When kids finish coloring and see the pictures come to life, it gives them a sense of accomplishment. It makes them proud of themselves, which is an excellent confidence boost that every child needs in order to always try and give their best, no matter what they decide to do.
Coloring pages help kids become more creative and learn about visual differences. The act of coloring can ignite imagination and inspire kids to come up with an infinite number of ideas to express their thoughts. It provides them with an opportunity to express their creative side. Kids can express their entire personalities through coloring and, what’s more, they can learn how to draw. The pictures within the coloring pages can inspire them and stimulate their creativity. They can wake up their artistic side, which can open a whole new world for them. Simply by looking at the colored drawings that they helped bring to life, kids create a whole other world inside their minds, which they will try and put on paper as well.
