All about Coloring Pages - Who needs them, are they good for something ?
We often meet people who tell us : what are those coloring pages good for? Who needs them?
Well, we consider that coloring pages and our website itself contribute to the education of children all around the globe.
After being born, a child is completely dependent of his/her mother for everything. A little child can't do all the things a grown up person can right after being born, he needs time and exercise. Practice, practice and practice again for any little thing that we consider easy peasy.
After some years, that child has learned a lot of thing about the surrounding world and how he can make it in this world. He learned to speak, to walk and eat all by himself. Now, his mind is always eager to learn new, exciting things. From early ages, like 3-4 years, children begin to be interested in drawing. It is simple to understand why: they love colors and their visual aspect is so attractive that they just simply can't resist.
They also love getting their hands and faces dirty by splashing and crushing the color tubes or by just touching a pencil or a brush while drawing. This is the moment they can start learning the eye-hand coordination practice. It seems easy but it's not. It takes a lot of practice and it takes a lot of time before a small child can color exactly where you want him to, in a small square or to actually color a whole object.
This is the moment you should provide to your children a set of coloring pages. They are visually attractive, they have that electrifying thing and children fall in love with these coloring sheets or even coloring books.
They come in a lot of categories. Actually, there are so many categories that we just can't remember them all if asked to.
Imagine any aspect of a human life and let me tell you there's a coloring page for that too.
So, what should a 3-4 or even 5 years old child color?
First, let's try to remember what shapes and objects they already know.
They know the food they usually eat so they know what fruits or vegetables look like. They know, for instance, that a watermelon is usually with stripes and that it is green. An apple is usually red and the peas is green. So, start with the vegetables coloring pages and also with the fruit coloring pages. That would be easy as they have just a few details and they can easily color.
The hardest thing you will need to teach your child is not to go over the borders of the item in the coloring page when coloring it. They don't actually make the difference between the interior of an orange, let's say, and the background around it. That is why you should always use the power of example. Show your child how you color and then let him/her try the same thing as you.
Children also know the whole toys variety as they usually spend their time playing with dolls, cars, balls and many other toys. It would make sense to give your children toys coloring pages as they will see familiar shapes like the one of a car or a soldier, or the form of a beautiful doll.

Another useful thing you could do is to try and think about what your child loves. Cartoons, for instance. I remember that when growing up, I used to watch cartoons on TV for hours. Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Minimax, Nickelodeon and many other cartoon television companies were basically my world.
I spent countless hours watching animated TV series and had many heroes (from the cartoon characters) that were present even in my night dreams. Bugs Bunny, Ben 10 or Uncle Grandpa (I still watch cartoons) were some friends I loved to keep track of. Their adventures became my adventures and I was curious to see the latest of their actions.
This would be a great place for you to start when deciding what coloring pages you should let your child color. You don’t want them to be only something funny, but to actually help your child learn something, like colors and the way a pencil should be held in his hand or the difference between a pen and a crayon.
