Determine your childs level when it comes to coloring. Some color books provide large coloring spaces making it easier for children to color the page, stay in the lines, etc. As the child gets older, their skill level for coloring increases as well, and the difficulty of the book may as well. Some coloring books come with written instructions, and other games, such as a dot to dot, or a maze. If you want to keep your child happy, and still challenge them, choose coloring or activity books in their range or level, and do not frustrate them with books that have too small of pictures, or too many spaces to color, or written instructions.
Those that really like to color are going to be looking for printable coloring pages all over the place so that they dont have to drive all over creation looking for that special coloring book. If you and/or your kids really like SpongeBob Squarepants, you will like looking for SpongeBob coloring pages so that you can make your own custom-made coloring book or books from SpongeBob printable coloring pages. Are you aware that there are a good many adults that really love to sit down and color when they have a few moments to simply sit down and relax? This is something that you might not be aware of, but really need to think about because it happens every day somewhere in this big world of ours.
One day I suggested that my friend and her kids and I should have a coloring party. We could have hot dogs, chips and ice cream and all color together, with the TV off, of course. We had a blast and we plan to do this once a month. Since then I have made it a practice to color in my books at least once or twice a week. This time is very relaxing for me and gives my mind a much needed break and its just plain fun. I think it is sad that we abandon, as adults, the fun things that we engaged in as kids. Just because we grow up doesnt mean we have to stop having innocent fun. I know it sounds simple, but try picking up a coloring book with images in it you can relate to and color inside or outside the lines if you want. Maybe even just scribble, but allow yourself to get in touch with the less serious side of yourself for a little while.
