Look for “coloring pages with animals” for giraffes, elephants, or zebras. Kids can either recreate the colors and patterns of animals they’ve seen at a zoo, or they can imaginatively think up new shades and patterns to color the animals.
Retrieve pictures of superheroes if your kids like these characters. Try a search for “DC comic superhero coloring pages” or “Marvel hero coloring sheets.”
Browse for pictures of characters from popular animated movies. Try searching for something like “recent Disney movie coloring pictures” or “Pixar character coloring pages.” Kids like coloring this type of picture, since the characters are instantly recognizable.
Example: if you want to create the appearance of shadow, try using a deeper blue (or red, or yellow, etc.) to create darker areas and a lighter blue for highlighted areas. This method can work with pencils, pens and markers.
Sites that feature fantasy coloring pages will also often feature images of mythological characters or some more realistic historical buildings and settings
If you are not concerned about smudging, you can begin coloring wherever you’d like.
