Note that you are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books, as there are many printable coloring pages designed for adults are available online, many of which are free.
Search for pictures of flowers and trees if your child likes nature. Search for something like “outdoors children’s coloring pictures.”
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).
Felt markers, crayons, colored pens, and colored pencils are all ideal coloring tools for kids to use.
You can also try putting paper or cardboard shapes beneath the coloring page and using the crayon rubbings method to create new shapes on your picture.
You’ll find images that are stylized or cartoony and others that are more realistic. Older kids may prefer coloring realistic pictures of flora.
