You are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books. Tons of printable coloring pages are available online and many of them are free.
Felt markers, crayons, colored pens, and colored pencils are all ideal coloring tools for kids to use.
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.
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.
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.
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.
