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 (permanent markers, for example, may bleed through your paper and leave stains).
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.
Browse for pictures of characters from popular animated movies. Try searching for something like “recent Disney movie coloring pictures” or “Pixar character coloring pages.” Kids like coloring this type of picture, since the characters are instantly recognizable.
If you are not concerned about smudging, you can begin coloring wherever you’d like.
Note that you are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books, as there are many printable coloring pages designed for adults are available online, many of which are free.
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.
