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.
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.
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.
These kinds of pictures can spark children’s imaginations by letting them soak up knowledge of how the natural world is structured.
Coloring books are a great option to pick if you don’t want to create your own drawings or if you want to color a lot.
Coloring books are inexpensive and they can be purchased from bookstores, department stores, or online. There is a wide variety of themes to choose from depending on your interests including comics, movies, nature, and animals.
