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.
If you want to make sure that you get the colors right, get a scrap piece of paper and try drawing swatches with the same colored pencil using different amounts of pressure. You can use the swatches as a reference point to decide how much pressure you want to use while coloring.
If you download and save several images at once, you won’t have to repeat the entire process the next time your child wants an image to color. You can just print one of the already-downloaded images.
Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens, colored pens, or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
When using coloring books, you can use your lap as a coloring surface if you’d like to draw while in bed on the couch, for example.
Don’t worry if your child colors in the animal figures in a way that doesn’t seem realistic. Kids can sometimes make “incorrect” or weird coloring choices, but they often have their own reasons for doing so.
