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.
Studies and researches have shown that initial five years of a child are the most critical ones from the point of view of learning. Their capacity to learn new things is at its highest ebb during this period. Children of this age group can be compared to a piece of sponge that is ready to absorb any liquid that it comes across. These are the building years for children and we need to use this period for giving them rock solid foundation that can help them in building their mansion of life upon it in a way that it becomes an example for everyone else to follow.
Ability to recognize colors Constant use of different colors as they color different pages will enable them to know and can comfortably tell which color is which. It also teaches them color combination from a very early age and by the time they grow up, they could have become masters in the act of effectively combining colors.
