By On Oct 11, 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.
The basic coordination skills like the proper way of holding the crayons, sharpening the crayons and recognizing what color to use, can help your children greatly. Coloring diagrams require your kids to color within the specified area. This helps to develop the hand and eye coordination in kids. It also fights cognitive loss, especially if you choose challenging and difficult drawing sheets.
In some circumstances, like this one, you can color outside the lines because you’ll cut the piece out afterwards. This allows you to use large consistent strokes, as you can see in the red kidney above and on the right. This is an especially helpful tip for younger students who are coloring the organs in this My Body project. (Just be sure not to use this tactic on the upper half of the heart in the My Body book because we won’t trim around all those veins and arteries.)
