That's what coloring pages and coloring books do for kids. They bring the imagination to life. They entertain kids bringing out creative and artistic talents. Yet coloring book pages can also educate kids, teaching them through various themes and concepts. Coloring book pages for kids are a classic, wonderful activity that they can enjoy endlessly.
Neuropsychologist Dr. Stan Rodski and brain scientist Dr. Joel Pearson both agree. In an interview, Dr. Rodski shares his belief that coloring for adults can encourage a relaxed state as the coloring individual focuses their attention on the detail and intricacies of a particular image. Similarly, Dr. Pearson explains that the therapeutic effect can be further understood by considering that the image you are coloring replaces any negative ones you may be harboring.
Developing New Skills. It is very important for children to develop their fine motor skills. Most children do not even realize that by coloring they are accomplishing this task. Having children complete coloring projects and printable coloring sheets will help children with many skills that will be valuable later in life.
Tubman was born Araminta “Minty” Ross to enslaved parents, Harriet (“Rit”) Green and Ben Ross. Rit was owned by Mary Pattison Brodess (and later her son Edward). Ben was held by Anthony Thompson, who became Mary Brodess’s second husband, and who ran a large plantation near the Blackwater River in the Madison area of Dorchester County, Maryland. As with many slaves in the United States, neither the exact year nor place of Tubman’s birth is known, and historians differ as to the best estimate. Kate Larson records the year as 1822, based on a midwife payment and several other historical documents, including her runaway advertisement, while Jean Humez says “the best current evidence suggests that Tubman was born in 1820, but it might have been a year or two later”. Catherine Clinton notes that Tubman reported the year of her birth as 1825, while her death certificate lists 1815 and her gravestone lists 1820.
Learning the color of a chair, or an elephant, of flowers, sun, zebra, parrot etc, will not need mugging up, but mere practical activity that will leave an everlasting impression on these little developing minds. You can also engage them in activities like creating new colors by mixing 2 or 3 colors. This will make them understand the evolution of different colors, which is fun too..
Some might think its crazy talk. Many more, however, have perhaps already realized the same.
Color printing is the reproduction of the written word and images in the form of color impressions, which can either be used for a full page or for partial design. It involves separation of different primary color pigments that can be added or deducted to give an impression of other hidden hues. In order to give rise to a neutral color, the process requires the addition of the primary hues in predetermined quantities. The most common use of this technology is in the industrial sector, especially in the print media, where countless impressions must be made in graphical representation to arrive at a preset format of mass reproduction to be used daily.
Occasionally, you'll find official cartoon or TV character sites (such as PBS programs) will make available coloring pages for free to their fans. And there are many other sites that distribute coloring pages of those copyrighted characters. Sounds like dangerous legal ground ...but, surprisingly, I've never heard of any of these sites being prosecuted for copyright infringement. So they'll probably continue to make them available.
