When using coloring books, you can use your lap as a coloring surface if you’d like to draw while in bed on the couch, for example.
There is a huge variety of coloring pages that are available online for free. Use a search engine to find the pictures that you are looking for, such as specific cartoon characters or animals. Then print as many copies of the coloring pages as you prefer.
Don’t worry if your child colors in the animal figures in a way that doesn’t seem realistic. Kids can sometimes make “incorrect” or weird coloring choices, but they often have their own reasons for doing so.
If they want to color a picture of one of these characters specifically, search for, for example, “Incredible Hulk coloring pages.”
Print the page in grayscale to make sure your child can color it. Printing in grayscale ensures that the image will be in black and white.
Especially when using colored pencils, it’s very important to gradually darken the color using multiple layers. Begin with gentle pressure to create light layers and with each additional layer press down slightly more until the color reaches the desired tone.
