If you are very concerned about making mistakes, stick to using colored pencils as these can be erased if necessary.
For darker areas, draw these lines closer together. To create highlights, leave more space between each line, or don’t draw any lines at all.
Choose a surface to color on. If you are using a loose leaf coloring page you will want to find a hard surface to work on, while coloring books allow you more flexibility.
If you are using pencils, be sure to sharpen them before you begin your coloring project, as this will allow you to have more precision in your coloring.
These kinds of pictures can spark children’s imaginations by letting them soak up knowledge of how the natural world is structured.
Look for “coloring pages with animals” for giraffes, elephants, or zebras. Kids can either recreate the colors and patterns of animals they’ve seen at a zoo, or they can imaginatively think up new shades and patterns to color the animals.
