The vast majority of families take at least one vacation a year which usually involves traveling to a foreign city and seeing the sights of the downtown area. Yet there are challenges in traveling with young children which can result in added stress for the parents. A stay in a Toronto hotel alone while on business is a completely different experience from that of staying at a downtown hotel with two young children. Often by simply doing some research ahead of time, these stresses can be eliminated altogether.
The repetitive, low-stress, and "no brainer" act of color lends itself to relaxation. The calming effects not only helps to reduce stress levels, but also can help to bring you back to your youth. The awesome part is that anyone can do it will no skill set required! Grab a crayon and you are good to go. You can make it even more enjoyable and have your kids or grandkids color with you. Depending on the age of the young ones they may be interested in the adult coloring books, others still wanting to color a cow, astronaut, or pretty flower arrangement.
Think about it this way; would you rather spend about an hours looking over and printing out SpongeBob coloring pages, or would you prefer to drive all over the place looking for a SpongeBob coloring book? The answer to this really depends upon whether the website, or websites, you are visiting have the coloring pages of SpongeBob Squarepants that you really want. Chances are that the website/websites that you decide to look on will have the images that you are looking for; yet you might not always find what you are looking for out there. Do you realize that you can have as much fun looking for the SpongeBob coloring pages that you want as you will when you sit down to actually color those pages?
When you sit with your child and see him coloring on a book, you feel completely relaxed. Colors are all that you need to relieve your anxiety, depression and even stress. There is a sudden change in the mood of an individual, when he exposes himself to different shades of different colors. One look at red, purple and green shades and you are emotionally out of all the problems in your life.
After watching how mesmerized she was while filling in the images with her newly sharpened pencils, I decided I wanted to color as well. Although the images I colored werent exactly inspirational to me, I enjoyed the experience overall. The next day, I decided I wanted to get my own coloring book with a new set of colored pens. I bought a book full of pictures of mandalas (a circle with complex designs in it). The designs were beautiful and I could imagine them once I filled them with color.
Coloring in pages that are specific for coloring. I have found a few websites that have pages to color that are downloadable. You can also try a resource store for teachers. These specific pages for coloring are pictures or drawings of a variety of design that you alone enjoy. You can make your own coloring book with these pages. After coloring the designs you can write your own narrative about how you feel. Write how the design itself and the colors you used relieved your stress. You can even write a short story about the design if you like, this is your project and it is for your eyes only.
Coloring books generally have a theme of sorts. It might be that they are based on a Disney movie, or it is about animals, or vehicles, or something else. When selecting books for your children, remember that they will want to express their creativity, and will have a lot of fun with any coloring book, but will be more interested in a coloring booklet with a theme that appeals to them. Choose a color book that features their favorite characters, or the item of interest in their life. For example, if your little boy just loves trains, get a Thomas the Train coloring book. If your little girl is as girly as they come, look for the Disney Princess coloring book, or possibly Strawberry Shortcake.
On TheDollPalace.com, for example, dolls of every shape and size are available for children to play with and create, and then favorites are created into coloring pages. When dolls and coloring pages are complete, there are still interesting articles to read, personalities about the dolls to create, contests to take part in, and even forums and chats to visit to get to know other doll and coloring enthusiasts.
Have you ever sat back and really thought about how much fun you really do have when you are sitting down coloring with your kids? If you are like most adults you might simply shrug it off and not really pay that much attention to this; yet there quite a few adults that really embrace that creative side and decide to express it by drawing or painting as either a hobby or a profession. If you are one of the really creative people you are likely to take that next step and simply make your creative passions work for you. This is something that many people really never give that much thought to as kids; or maybe those kids that became well known artists always knew that they wanted to share their creativity with the world. It is kind of amazing when you really think about the fact that just sitting there coloring either by yourself or with your kids really can make a big difference in your life.
Have you come to a point when you feel like your family is a hopeless case? Sometimes you just feel that it has been a daily routine. Days passed and even for years the daily schedules just repeat itself like it was destined to be like it. You and your wife leave home while your child is having a breakfast by himself. Isnt that a sad scene to look at? Family bonding is a must in maintaining a harmonious relationship. Being short of time can ruin bonds between family members and that can direct the way to a very serious family breakdown. Kids can be uncared for not just with the physical needs, the emotional and societal wants even comes worst as compared to neglect of substantial needs.
