Felt markers, crayons, colored pens, and colored pencils are all ideal coloring tools for kids to use.
If you think your utensils could cause unwanted smudging, it can be helpful either to color the center of your picture first and work your way outwards, or to start at the top of your page and work your way down. If you aren’t worried about smudging, begin coloring wherever you’d like.
While you are coloring, use plenty of different colors to make your picture look bold and bright.
Example: if you want to create the appearance of shadow, try using a deeper blue (or red, or yellow, etc.) to create darker areas and a lighter blue for highlighted areas. This method can work with pencils, pens and markers.
If you are not concerned about smudging, you can begin coloring wherever you’d like.
If you make a mistake while coloring using an app, it is much easier to remove than coloring with pencils or markers on paper.
