Coloring pages are more than just a rainy day activity. They can be a great teaching opportunity for children`s motor skill, cognitive development and moral upbringing. As a parent, guardian or teacher of young children it is vital to make the most out this chance to fully engage the youngsters and help them fulfill their potential in a fun and creative manner.
Christian parents can easily find many free Bible coloring pages online. Even if your family is not religious it is important for children to understand religious concept, icons, and events from the Bible. This is an issue cultural education, not just a moral foundation. In a broader perspective these images can be used as a starting point for conversation on moral topics in general. Of course coloring pages depicting Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist and even Humanist principles are freely available online.
After all that one should think that the finished coloring page is the work of a miniature Picasso and many coloring pages tend to look that way. The search for the printable coloring page also introduces children to the internet and technology. They pick many things that we would take for granted. There’s how to use the keyboard and mouse. Kids learn about logging onto the internet and about search engines, which are excellent ways to find needed information. In fact looking for printable coloring pages can be turned into a chance to show children that there is a world of information at their fingertips
Beyond these simplistic and often jingoistic sources, a foundation for a broader moral education can be found if parents use a little creativity in their search. Many state government departments offer free couloring sheets promoting good citizenship. For example the State Department of Environmental Protection might offer activity pages promoting keeping the environment clean. Other important civic and moral lessons that can be taught via coloring are sharing, loyalty and self-discipline.
Beyond the skill of holding a crayon or pencil properly, learning to keep the lines drawn on the coloring pages is another example of fine motor skills. This is a more advanced concept, and may well take several years for the child to fully be able to accomplish, so only positive comments should be made on your youngsters coloring attempts in this regard. It is better to have them enjoy coloring and want to do it often then become discouraged by negative feedback and harsh criticisms.
