Now I am too old to watch Spiderman cartoons on my own, which is why it is great that I can do so with my son! He's a great excuse for me to sit and relive my youth! No matter what the theme or the picture, all a child - or the young at heart - needs is the page and something to color with. Pencils, crayons, markers, watercolor paints, chalk. There are coloring books made specially to be used with water-colors, that come with their own little set of paints and brush, and have thicker pages. Let's be honest. The Internet is quite possibly one of the best and worst inventions to come around in a long long time. With it, you get the good and inevitably, you get the bad. It can help make you more productive in life and it can also cause you to be highly inefficient. Now, before we get off on a rant here I should clarify, this article is actually going to be about free colouring pages. How you may ask? Well, the way I see it, free colouring pages epitomize how the internet can help parents. And although it may sound like a stretch, I'll attempt to connect the proverbial dots that add up to my colouring pages conviction.
Coloring pages not only enhance concentration skills, eye-hand coordination, color coordination and various other essential skills, they also give you some time to relax with your child. Moreover, coloring papers are so enjoyable and learning that parents give feedback of increased concentration among their children, better coordination of colors etc. The thing that I love most about colouring pages is that it allows me the opportunity to share a small aspect of my past with my children. Although they find it comical that some of the coloring page characters such as the care bears, tinkerbell, and strawberry shortcake were around when I was a child. We live in a capitalist society where the value and price of any given commodity will be directly determined by the interrelated concepts of supply and demand in that the more readily available a particular resource it is, the less it will cost the purchaser and the converse is also true which is why gold is far more expensive than the likes of coal. Tinkerbell coloring sheets describe the character as a common fairy who mends pots, sometimes is very helpful, and other times is very close and kind to Peter Pan. Children will discover her personality, who does not let her more feelings at a time, step by step and page by page. The joy of colouring these books will come also from the fact that along with Tinkerbell, your kids will find easy and enjoyable to draw in, Peter Pan and Wendy. The sheets are easy to download on your computer, be printed and handed on to your children, this way their little imaginative "mission" to begin.
There are hundreds of different themes you can find in the coloring pages starting from funny cartoon's characters to very informative pictures like alphabet, figures and so on. And thanks to coloring books by the preschool age many children already know the alphabet and how to count. By painting any of the letters in coloring pages they can learn how to write letters and be able to recognize them making the process of learning to read much easier. Thus, coloring pages are a very educational tool for young minds. Our favorites are a special collection of free dinosaur coloring pages by Paul Stickland, author of the great toddler book Dinosaur Roar! These dinosaurs are full of character and a big hit in our house. Winnie the Pooh coloring pages are the ideal solution for this rather awkward state of affairs in that they require nothing more than the booklet itself and some crayons, pencils or pens. It is likely that the car will be rather cramped and so space will be at an all time premium and so Winnie the Pooh coloring pages are ideal because they are so small and portable meaning that the kids can be occupied and let the parents focus on the road. Many parents criticise the Winnie the Pooh coloring pages on the basis that they are not very useful for the long term, i.e. once they are coloured in they pose no further use for the child. This is somewhat significantly offset by virtue of the fact that they are so cheap, meaning that if they do get used up sooner than later it really isn't the end of the world. As a parent I know how expensive purchasing hundreds of coloring books can get and its such a shame to let something so fun pass them by because of money, so finding free pages online are a fantastic way to still provide kids with the fun without the expense. Let your kids evolve, grow, imagine, and participate in one of the easiest methods around to challenge their skills with coloring.
