• 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.
Another advantage of coloring pages is that they provide your child with the chance to strengthen their hand eye coordination, as they learn to color in the lines. This skill will develop gradually as they go from struggling to stay inside the lines, to perfecting this fine motor activity.
