Print the page in grayscale to make sure your child can color it. Printing in grayscale ensures that the image will be in black and white.
While coloring is traditionally done with crayon, use any tools that you feel comfortable with. You can try using fine-tip permanent markers, gel pencils, crayons, and different types of pencils such as watercolor.
Blend colors and shades to create dimension. Another way to add depth is to blend different shades or colors together to achieve different values.
Select your coloring utensils. Crayons and water-based markers are both great for kids. Gel pens are another fun option.
Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens, colored pens, or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
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.
