Coloring books are fun for all ages. Although coloring is not generally considered to be very difficult, there are a number of methods and tips that you can use to help make your experience more enjoyable and successful.
You are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books. Tons of printable coloring pages are available online and many of them are free.
Once you’ve clicked “print” and the resultant menu pops up, look for a “grayscale” option.] If it’s not immediately apparent, you’ll need to do a little digging.
Use your time coloring to enjoy being in the moment and focusing on the task at hand. Try not to worry about making mistakes or if the colors don’t look right. Remember that the purpose of coloring is to enjoy being creative. You can always start on a new picture or page if you need to.
Example: if you want to create the appearance of shadow, try using a deeper blue (or red, or yellow, etc.) to create darker areas and a lighter blue for highlighted areas. This method can work with pencils, pens and markers.
Coloring apps are great because you have a wide variety of different options to color, without having to carry around multiple coloring books, pages, and tools.
