Many parents already know that coloring pages help develop their children's artistic abilities. They may not be familiar with the ways that using coloring pages can help their little ones to improve their skills towards writing. As children practice coloring, their abilities to stay within the lines improve over time. This focused ability to control the pencils or crayons precisely is an important part of being able to hold a writing instrument still and steady for when it is time to draw the letters of the alphabet. Artistic abilities are cultivated and strengthened in children who do well at coloring pages. Besides this, they will find it easier to start writing their alphabet letters when the time for this comes.
• 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.
