. Coloring Pages. March 18th , 2013.
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. 3. Interested in the Topic: It is a fact of life that people get bored sometimes. The exciting thing about coloring pages is that there are so many different subjects, you should be able to find one that your child is interested in. If your child is into the PBS Kids Dinosaur Train TV show, you may find that they love to color their favorite characters, Buddy, Tiny, Shiny and Don. Kids love to relate to the characters on their and this makes the coloring experience far from boring.
Coloring books are a thing of the past. Kids today aren’t as thrilled by a basic coloring book as children a generation ago. That is because these children have been spoiled by all the fantastic new methods of coloring using the computer or with fancy markers and pens. While you might get away with a coloring book and crayons for a long car trip, don’t expect your school age children to sit quietly at the table coloring pictures the old fashioned way – there is a something better around, and they know it. Online Coloring Pages ==> The computer and the internet have opened an entirely new spectrum of coloring and drawing. Adults now make very sizable livings creating, drawing and coloring pictures for computer animation including video games, movies, commercials and items most adults would never consider, such as some high-quality information websites. With this option available as a full-fledged career for adults, it is no wonder that the tools and formats used in this style of artwork have carried down to children, albeit on a smaller scale.
Kids are now able to draw online and even animate the drawings. In addition to this, one of the most popular forms of online entertainment is basic online coloring pages. If the coloring books of yesterday are fading away, coloring pages for kids on the internet have definitely taken their place. The coloring pages for kids can contain any style of picture imaginable, and some websites, such as TheDollPalace.com, create their own coloring pages using some of the site’s most popular dolls. Coloring Page Communities ==> Some websites offer very basic coloring pages for kids that can be printed off and colored. Others create interactive coloring pages that require children to work on the computer itself to color the images. Unlike the basic websites, the interactive coloring pages are often found on more complex websites that act as a full-fledged community. The coloring pages are only one of many things available to do on a particular site.
All kids like to color, but there are important reasons to encourage and guide this activity beyond the simple hedonistic impetus to have fun. Coloring Builds Fine Motor Skills ==> Perhaps the biggest benefit children get from coloring pages of animals or their favorite cartoon characters is the development of fine motor skills. This includes learning the proper way to hold the crayon, marker or colored pencil they are using to draw with. When supervising young children learning how to color use gentle instructions to encourage them to hold the writing implement near the tip, cradled between the tips of their thumb, index finger and middle finger. Many children grab the crayon in their fist. Correcting this improper usage is an important first step towards real penmanship. Beyond the skill of holding a crayon or pencil properly, learning to keep the lines drawn on the coloring pages is another example of fine motor skills. This is a more advanced concept, and may well take several years for the child to fully be able to accomplish, so only positive comments should be made on your youngsters coloring attempts in this regard. It is better to have them enjoy coloring and want to do it often then become discouraged by negative feedback and harsh criticisms.
On TheDollPalace.com, for example, dolls of every shape and size are available for children to play with and create, and then favorites are created into coloring pages. When dolls and coloring pages are complete, there are still interesting articles to read, personalities about the dolls to create, contests to take part in, and even forums and chats to visit to get to know other doll and coloring enthusiasts. While coloring pages may seem simple in the minds of parents and other adults these days, they are often the passport into a more creative style of play. Yes, your child will simply color the picture online, but by doing so, she is learning not only to stay inside the lines, but to balance color and texture and to simply use her imagination. If a coloring page for kids is the first step into a full-fledged imagination based entertainment package, it is unlikely many parents will find them simple for long.
3. Improves Hand to Eye Coordination ==> When children are giving pictures to color, they definitely will hold the crayon and from time to time will check what they have done so far, to determine the next color to use. These activities will help them greatly in their hand and eye coordination. They also have to make sure that the colors does not go beyond the expected line and are required to sharpen the crayons from time to time. 4. Ability to recognize colors ==> Constant use of different colors as they color different pages will enable them to know and can comfortably tell which color is which. It also teaches them color combination from a very early age and by the time they grow up, they could have become masters in the act of effectively combining colors.
This coloring pages are wonderful for helping children to get excited about the holidays too. For example you can print those for what is just around the corner including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter. In fact, they can even give those beautifully colored pages to other people as gifts for that particular holiday time. If you want your children to get the most from it, allow them to sit with you at the computer and choose the pictures that they would like. They are going to be more inclined to spend time coloring them when they have had some input about what they will look like.Even though coloring books typically aren’t expensive, you will find they have plenty of pages that the kids simply skip over. With creating your own though, you can be certain every single page is going to be a hit. With single pages too each child can work on one of them independently instead of sharing the same coloring book.
