These kinds of pictures can spark children’s imaginations by letting them soak up knowledge of how the natural world is structured.
While coloring is traditionally done with crayon, use any tools that you feel comfortable with. You can try using fine-tip permanent markers, gel pencils, crayons, and different types of pencils such as watercolor.
When using on loose sheets of paper, you may want to cover your work surface in newspaper depending on the coloring utensils you’ve chosen (markers may bleed through your paper and leave behind marks).
You are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books. Tons of printable coloring pages are available online and many of them are free.
Search for “fantasy coloring pages” for pictures of dragons and more! If your child likes knights, dragons, princesses, and castles, they’ll probably enjoy coloring images of fantasy creatures.
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.
