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.
Coloring pages can be great fun for kids, especially if the pages feature the child’s favorite animals, flowers, or animated characters. There are plenty of free coloring pages online, so you should never have to pay to download these images.
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.
Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
Use your time coloring to enjoy being in the moment and focusing on the task at hand. Try not to worry about making mistakes or if the colors don’t look right. Remember that the purpose of coloring is to enjoy being creative. You can always start on a new picture or page if you need to.
Decide what colors you are going to use. For example, you might want to only use cool colors (blues, purples, and dark greens) or only use warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows, and light greens). Or, you might prefer to use all of the colors of the rainbow in your picture.
