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. You may still find it easier to have a more flat and solid surface to work on, though.
If you make a mistake while coloring using an app, it is much easier to remove than coloring with pencils or markers on paper.
While coloring is usually regarded as a solitary activity, there are plenty of coloring groups available where like-minded people share ideas, techniques, and support. Use social media to find a coloring group to join or ask at your local art club or library. If you want a darker color, try applying multiple layers.
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.
