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.
All you need to do is conduct an online search for the type of pages your child likes, then print them out with a few simple steps.
Try shading by using a combination of light and dark tones to show where the aspects of your drawings that are highlighted. You can also try cross hatching by adding intersecting lines to create dimension.
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.
These kinds of pictures can spark children’s imaginations by letting them soak up knowledge of how the natural world is structured.
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.
