So many positive things have been said about coloring sheets and coloring apps in general. Lately, a new trend has emerged on the Internet and it is absolutely raging: color by number and paint by number coloring sheets and pages. Let’s put all these online apps aside for a moment, and focus on the benefits of color by number coloring books alone, especially for young users. Okay, you are given a picture, the numbers are there within it, and you are already told what the color for a corresponding number is. How can it be beneficial? If nothing, it seems a bit simple and stupid, don’t you think? Well, not really!.
Coloring activities are popular kindergarten games, and while they can provide ample opportunities for fun, these activities are also extremely important at teaching children about focus and concentration. It is believed that children who spend time coloring have better skills in concentration and focus. Coloring activities will require your child to concentrate not only on the movement of his crayon, but he will also need to focus on the result his coloring is leaving behind on his paper while also ensuring that he is choosing the color that correctly corresponds to the assigned number.
First off, even though it may seem that children are quite restrained when coloring these coloring pages in terms of shapes, choice of colors and what not, color by number images can really be encouraging for some kids. Namely, there are children who feel frustrated when given too many choices and opportunities to make decisions. For some of them, having to pick colors and plan the way to color a picture might come as torture, making them feel anxious and nervous. That is why these color by number coloring pages are more than welcome: you are already told what to do, therefore you can relax and perform the actions. One more major benefit of color by number coloring pages is that not only young kids learn how to discern colors (in terms of primary and secondary ones), but they also learn how to put numbers in contexts other than counting. Here, numbers are presented as mere symbols that can and will occur anywhere else in real life.
