Print the image as a full page to give your child plenty of space to color. If you’re given the option to choose what size the image will be printed as, select “full page.” Click “print” again to print out the picture.
Once you’ve clicked “print” and the resultant menu pops up, look for a “grayscale” option.] If it’s not immediately apparent, you’ll need to do a little digging.
Use your time coloring to enjoy being in the moment and focusing on the task at hand. Try not to worry about making mistakes or if the colors don’t look right. Remember that the purpose of coloring is to enjoy being creative. You can always start on a new picture or page if you need to.
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.
Choose the target location and type in a name for the picture. For example, call it something like “Santa Claus coloring picture.”
These kinds of pictures can spark children’s imaginations by letting them soak up knowledge of how the natural world is structured.
