• Children can also learn to read and do math quickly since frequent filling of coloring pages helps them recognize patterns quickly. • Increased confidence as a result of gaining feelings of accomplishment when pictures are completed correctly and beautifully. Since the pages already have printed designs, the child won't have to feel the pressure of creating designs but can do the easy and rewarding job of coloring them.
As already mentioned free coloring pages are a great way to teach your child all sorts of things, numbers for example. There are different ways this can be done, one way would be to simply have the number somewhere on the page, such as the number 10, and then somewhere else on the page would be an object or animal cleverly twisted into that number. There could also simply be 10 of something on the page, you can get your child to color the page in and then count out how many apples for example there are, which will obviously correspond to the number on the page.
