You are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books. Tons of printable coloring pages are available online and many of them are free.
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.
Color however you feel is best. You can experiment with different designs, colors, and patterns, or keep it simple depending on what works for you.
Sites that feature fantasy coloring pages will also often feature images of mythological characters or some more realistic historical buildings and settings
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.
If you are not concerned about smudging, you can begin coloring wherever you’d like.
