Coloring your own pictures is a great way to get creative and to have the freedom to color any design that you want. Trace your favorite pictures or use your imagination to create cartoons, patterns, lettering, or still life drawings.
Here is a list of various things to do with finished coloring pages, as well as crafts with blank coloring pages. You can also use coloring pages as a template to create beautiful pieces of art for your home.
Search for pictures of flowers and trees if your child likes nature. Search for something like “outdoors children’s coloring pictures.”
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.

When using coloring books, you can use your lap as a coloring surface if you’d like to draw while in bed on the couch, for example.
