There is no doubt that visual learning plays a key role when it comes to childrens learning and development. In fact, visual teachings are commonly regarded as one of the most important factors that add a lot to a childs early growth and development. For the records, children are easily influenced by what they see, touch, feel and participate more than just what they hear. Visuals help them retain and remember lessons taught. It also takes care of verbal miscommunication and also creates and retains their interest in a particular lesson. It is often said that humans, especially kids tend to remember 10% of what they hear, 50% of what they see, and 80% of what they see and do. This underlines the importance of visual aids in learning and development of kids.
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.
Coloring pages have been around for many years, but with the ever-evolving technology that we are all so in awe of, it is the high-tech games and toys that generally catch the attention of parents, while the advantages that coloring pages have to offer very young or even elementary age children, are ignored.
