2. Imaginations Run Wild: While decorating these pages, kids will often times experiment with various colors. How many times have you seen a smurf colored princess? With dinosaurs, kids will let their imaginations run wild, as they may be talking to the dinosaurs, or about the dinosaurs, or telling stories while they color in the page. Building an imagination is one of those important life skills in a well rounded individual that should be encouraged at a young age.
What is best about printable coloring pages is that many times they are free! You don’t have to buy a membership to the website you visit. All you have to do is click and print. This can allow you to offer a huge variety of pictures to your child or your class without having to offer the same picture over and over again.
Like already said picture lessons are easily retained by children more than any other thing. When they have pictures to color (say an animal), they take notice of the lines, shape, form and names. This will help them recognize such picture next time they see it. Easy recognition of things helps build their overall knowledge with time.
I researched adult coloring and read the back and forth movement of the crayon, colored pencil, or marker does in fact have a calming effect since it requires the use of both sides of the brain causing neurons to reinforce their connections between both sides while shutting down the frontal lobe which controls organization. So, a feeling of balance occurs after a stressful day. Coloring gives relief to the daily demands of attention focusing at work, stress of everyday life, information overload, intense competition, intense play, intense everything at times.

However, it is important to understand that using a coloring book for adults is not exactly the same as completing an art therapy session. While art therapy was first practiced in the 1940s, the first research on using adult coloring pages as therapy is generally believed to have only begun as recently the mid-90s.
”Escapism” is defined as ”entertainment or recreation, as an ”escape”… from the perceived unpleasant, boring, arduous, scary, or banal aspects of daily life.” In other words – coloring helps you cope with the otherwise stressful/awfully boring routine or with even depression. The magical world of multiple shapes and colors takes to a far nicer place, where you could enjoy simple pleasures.
