You spent so much time on the piece of art — don’t throw it away! And it can be a nightmare to store kids art. Let’s make something fun with your coloring sheets instead!
While coloring is usually regarded as a solitary activity, there are plenty of coloring groups available where like-minded people share ideas, techniques, and support. Use social media to find a coloring group to join or ask at your local art club or library. If you want a darker color, try applying multiple layers.
If you want to make sure that you get the colors right, get a scrap piece of paper and try drawing swatches with the same colored pencil using different amounts of pressure. You can use the swatches as a reference point to decide how much pressure you want to use while coloring.
Regardless of the type of tool that you choose, look for a set that has a wide variety of different colors so that you can experiment with different techniques such as shading.
You’ll find images that are stylized or cartoony and others that are more realistic. Older kids may prefer coloring realistic pictures of flora.
Here is a list of various things to do with finished coloring pages, as well as crafts with blank coloring pages. You can also use coloring pages as a template to create beautiful pieces of art for your home.
