All you need to do is conduct an online search for the type of pages your child likes, then print them out with a few simple steps.
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.
Blend colors and shades to create dimension. Another way to add depth is to blend different shades or colors together to achieve different values.
When using on loose sheets of paper, you may want to cover your work surface in newspaper depending on the coloring utensils you’ve chosen (permanent markers, for example, may bleed through your paper and leave stains).
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.
If you are not concerned about smudging, you can begin coloring wherever you’d like.
