But the alphabet color pages which come with designs and small drawings like beautiful coloring objects make it easy for them to remember the words. When ’H for Horse or Home or House’ is linked with pictures or cartoons of the objects, they find it interesting and funny and remember quickly. Thus this is one very important benefit that you get from alphabet coloring pages.
Coloring in a picture will command your child’s full attention, as they concentrate on completing their work, and having the finished product show that they have done their best. This is a welcome assistance for parents who struggle to provide their children with experiences that will captivate their attention, only to find that their little minds and bodies start wandering after only a short time. So as a parent, you gain a short respite as your child works on their coloring page, your child gets to participate in a fun activity that teaches them as well. Which leads me to the next point.
The different types of Biblical coloring pages are – Abraham Coloring Sheets, Cain and Abel Color Pages, Adam and Eve Color Pages, Creation Color Pages, Easter Color Pages, David (and Goliath) Color Pages, Jacob and Esau Color Pages, Hannah and Samuel Color Pages, Noah’s Ark Color Pages, Moses Color Pages, Ruth and Naomi Color Pages, Samson and Delilah Coloring Sheets, Old Testament Color Pages and to name a few.
Coloring pages can provide enrichment by providing pictures of numbers, letters, animals, and words, so that your child will expand their knowledge in a number of areas. Your child will receive the greatest educational benefit when the coloring pages bring all of these elements together, such as when there is a picture of an animal with it’s name written on the page, or when numbers are shown with the name of the number written out, or even a two-sided coloring page with one side showing the letter, number or word, and the other side of the page depicting an animal whose shape resembles the letter or number on the previous page. Take for example a coloring page that has a number one, along with a giraffe that is reminiscent of a number one in it’s shape. Your child will not only have fun coloring the number and animal, but their lesson will also include writing the number one and being introduced to a giraffe.
Alternatively, you could use coloring pages as a reward that you give to your child when he or she does something good, like says thank you, gives a compliment, or helps out before being asked. Not only does it reward them by giving them an activity they will enjoy doing, but it also demonstrates to them that it’s good to do things that please the Lord.
Coloring pages have been around for many years, but with the ever-evolving technology that we are all so in awe of, it is the high-tech games and toys that generally catch the attention of parents, while the advantages that coloring pages have to offer very young or even elementary age children, are ignored. It would be quite beneficial for parents to understand that coloring pages provide a great number of learning opportunities for their children, and these lessons are conveyed in a fundamental way that children can grasp. And this incredible opportunity is available at no cost to you, as these pages can be freely printed from a number of online sites. So now you needn’t worry about the cost of the latest expensive educational gadget, as you only need to supply the ink for your printer and you will be able to take advantage of all that coloring pages provide for your child.
