These kinds of pictures can spark children’s imaginations by letting them soak up knowledge of how the natural world is structured.
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.
Decide what colors you are going to use. For example, you might want to only use cool colors (blues, purples, and dark greens) or only use warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows, and light greens). Or, you might prefer to use all of the colors of the rainbow in your picture.
Start from the outside of a section and work your way towards the center as you color. Try to color in the same direction at all times if possible, so that the strokes look neat and tidy.
Choose a surface to color on. If you are using a loose leaf coloring page you will want to find a hard surface to work on, while coloring books allow you more flexibility.
Coloring books are a great option to pick if you don’t want to create your own drawings or if you want to color a lot.
