Search for pictures of flowers and trees if your child likes nature. Search for something like “outdoors children’s coloring pictures.”
Open the image and select “print” to print out the coloring page. When you click on “print,” the computer will bring up a menu page allowing you to select a printer and choose how many copies of the image you’d like to print.
Coloring your own pictures is a great way to get creative and to have the freedom to color any design that you want. Trace your favorite pictures or use your imagination to create cartoons, patterns, lettering, or still life drawings.
Especially when using colored pencils, it’s very important to gradually darken the color using multiple layers. Begin with gentle pressure to create light layers and with each additional layer press down slightly more until the color reaches the desired tone.
Select your coloring utensils. Crayons and water-based markers are both great for kids. Gel pens are another fun option.
Felt markers, crayons, colored pens, and colored pencils are all ideal coloring tools for kids to use.
