My kids turn into saints once they see the coloring sheets rolling out of the printer. They love it when I start passing out coloring printables with their favorite characters on it. The most valuable aspect of coloring pages are there educational value. They will help your kids with their motor skills i.e. finger dexterity, eye-hand coordination as well as increase their mental capacity. The list goes on regarding the benefits of allowing your child to color versus playing video games or watching television. The simple action of creatively coloring in a page acts as a release from the daily stresses and worries someone faces. In the moments that you are coloring, you have the potential to escape from every other thought and to focus your energy and attention to the image or design in front of you. What's more, individuals having trouble focusing are often experiencing this challenge due to an overly stressed mind and thought pattern. By taking time out to color, the same individual can encourage mental clarity and focus.
When I was a young lad not a lot older than my son is now, I began using coloring sheets as an activity I could do with my father. I really enjoyed working on them but I also enjoyed the one on one time with my father and having something we could do together. So you can imagine how keen I am to continue this tradition and now begin having fun with my boy and some coloring pages. 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. Kids love dinosaurs and kids love crayons, pencils and painting. So coloring dinosaur pictures makes a great activity for toddlers, preschoolers and older kids. There are lots of free dino coloring pages available on the web, but the quality varies considerably. If you know where to look, you can get straight to coloring a T-Rex or a Pteranodon without spending lots of time searching. Children who lack intellectual maturity and emotional satisfaction can be appreciated through the assignment of task involving coloring their favorite characters. In the beginning they may start up with whacky coloring but eventually their skills tend to enhance. They gain emotional satisfaction and also build up essential motor skills like concentration of eyes and hand, hand dexterity etc. it is a kind of wholesome enjoyable task. Most kids love Disney characters very much and when they get their hands onto coloring they forget everything else. They become like angels and always try to express their best by coloring.
A lot of the activities kids do these days are very expensive or very hard for me to join in with. For example, I certainly can't skateboard, I can't swim and I definitely do not know how to use a PC or Xbox to play games. I am lost when it comes to computers, I really am. I know it is inevitable that as my son grows that he will soon enough be wanting to do things on his own and being seen with his dad would be grounds for teasing from his friends so I am making a huge effort to spend as much free time as I can with him now and really make every moment count. They say time is the most precious gift you can give to a youngster and I am trying hard to live by that. It seems increasingly hard to find activities that Fathers can do with their little ones. Mums seem to get most of the fun. Through coloring pages parents can control children's mood and feelings. For example, in different situation dog can be drawn in green or purple colors, or elephant can become mottle, while many children may know what color they should be already. If kids enjoy learning from an early age, it should be a lot easier for them to learn other things in the future. I know from my own experience, that when I enjoy learning something new it seems a lot easier than when I am forced to learn something new. The emergence of the internet has simplified many aspects of our lives. One of these aspects is learning. It is much easier and quicker to transfer information than ever before. I have a ton of scrapbooks now, all filled with his completed pages. I suspect I will love looking through these when I am older. The rest will go up on the walls of the house, mostly in the lounge or conservatory I imagine. By showing them off proudly I want to make clear to my boy how precious they are to me. By this I am hoping to build his self-confidence which was something I still suffer a lack of, so am keen to give my son the best head start in life that I can. When we get visitors to the house, whether friends or family you can also be sure they will comment on the artworks and tell my son what a great job he did. It seems to be having a good effect to as he has started to become more outgoing and will talk to near strangers now about his works, whats colors he used etc. Whereas before he would have been quiet with some folks, now he often offers to make them one straight away so they can take it home with them!
