By On Oct 10, 2018 Free Coloring
We have a fair number of young children in our community who aren’t reading yet, so I thought it would be nice to have a sample set of pre-colored pages from the My Body book for my tutors to show the class (…and I just like coloring.) I thought I could do this while helping my two sons with school last week, but they kept getting distracted! Instead of completing math sheets, they were watching me color and asking questions about how I was coloring. That’s when it occurred to me that I’d never really taught my kids how to color.
Coloring gives your kids an opportunity to express their creative side. A child makes an imaginary world in his mind before drawing the picture on the sheet. So, hand your kids a box of crayons and set them free. This can lead to many highly desired outcomes. It allows your children to think about the different color combinations that he or she can use to give an appealing look to the picture.
It will make a bigger impact on the end result than anything else and any age can use it! The changes in direction, shown on the red kidney below, on the left side, are what make it look sloppy, even though I carefully stayed in the lines. Coloring in a consistent direction, as seen on the other kidney, is easier on the eyes and ends up looking very tidy! If you have a corner or turn that makes it really awkward not to change direction, you can either color using curved lines or color using very small circles instead of lines. Just keep in mind that how you color will always be visible and will create the appearance of texture.
