• Filling our printed coloring pages also gives the child the opportunity to spend some quiet and restful time without sitting in front of a television screen or playing video games. • Most importantly, these pages offer a parent a very good opportunity to spend quality time with the child since the activity can be completed without any stress. This is a good time to have long talks with the child and understand his or her needs, dreams and worries.
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. Take for example a coloring page that has a number one, along with a giraffe that is reminiscent of a number one in it's shape. Your child will not only have fun coloring the number and animal, but their lesson will also include writing the number one and being introduced to a giraffe.
