Felt markers, crayons, colored pens, and colored pencils are all ideal coloring tools for kids to use.
Print the image as a full page to give your child plenty of space to color. If you’re given the option to choose what size the image will be printed as, select “full page.” Click “print” again to print out the picture.
Start from the outside of a section and work your way towards the center as you color. Try to color in the same direction at all times if possible, so that the strokes look neat and tidy.
Search for pictures of flowers and trees if your child likes nature. Search for something like “outdoors children’s coloring pictures.”
No matter what colors you ultimately choose, having a rough idea of how you’d like your completed piece to look will help ensure that you are satisfied with your final product.
Vary your strokes to add depth to your drawing. Crosshatching is a popular and fairly simple way to create depth using variation in strokes. Crosshatching is done by drawing overlapping sets of lines at right angles (this pattern should look mesh-like).
