As of 2014, Christmas bells coloring pages can be found online at Coloring.ws from DLTKS and First Palette. Coloring.ws from DTLS allows users to print pages directly from the website. First Palette allows users to download the printable sheets in a PDF reader and then print the pages on A4 paper, letter-sized paper or card stock.
Some of the benefits of coloring pages are the promotion of self expression, color recognition, therapy, grip and control, motor building skills, coordination and focus, according to Coloring.ws from DTLS. Art is a form of self expression when children use a blank canvas, such as a coloring sheet — the colors they use and the way they draw on the paper can indicate their feelings. Coloring is a therapeutic way to relieve stress.
Focusing on the task is an important skill to develop, and concentrating on finishing an art project such as coloring Christmas bells is a good way to practice this skill. Boundaries on the coloring pages refer to the lines of the image within which the student should color. By respecting the boundaries on the paper, young children can prepare for other tasks such as writing on the lines when they learn handwriting. Coloring within the lines is also a form of accomplishment for children.
