Coloring pages or coloring books are always great for entertainment and perfect activity as a stress reliever. But have you ever wondered what to do with finished coloring pages?
For darker areas, draw these lines closer together. To create highlights, leave more space between each line, or don’t draw any lines at all.
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.
If you want to make sure that you get the colors right, get a scrap piece of paper and try drawing swatches with the same colored pencil using different amounts of pressure. You can use the swatches as a reference point to decide how much pressure you want to use while coloring.
When using on loose sheets of paper, you may want to cover your work surface in newspaper depending on the coloring utensils you’ve chosen (permanent markers, for example, may bleed through your paper and leave stains).
These kinds of pictures can spark children’s imaginations by letting them soak up knowledge of how the natural world is structured.
