Printable Coloring Pages
Expand your child’s mind with printable coloring pages that they color by hand, like you did when you were a child. Keep them in your car, in your purse, or keep them everywhere! Get in a crunch or need to keep your little one occupied? Bust out a coloring page! One crayon is all you need, but 2 or more is better.
Kids Coloring Sheets
You can literally print 10 – 20 sheets at a time and make your very own coloring books. These are great for:
- fund raisers
- wedding cakes
- birthday cakes
- and yes even tattoos ( hopefully fake ones)
Kids, this is how to change print sizes
Internet Explorer 7 (or higher) Users If you use Internet Explorer 7 (or higher), click the File menu and go to your print settings, or go to the top right corner and click “print preview” (under the drop-down print button). You can shrink the percentage (%) and click print. You can also click page setup and change the margins to a greater number. The larger the margins, the smaller the coloring picture. Firefox Users If you use Firefox, click the File drop-down menu and then click “Page Setup”. You have the same options, you can lower the percent (%) and make it smaller, or you can change the margins. This way, you can print it any size you like! So, open a child’s mind and show them how to color. It is also a great way to spend time with them. You will bring back good memories from when you used to color!
Letting a child color with coloring pages does not limit his or her creativity; in fact, it does the opposite. You can color in or out of lines, but the fact is coloring gets the creative mind going, creates curiosity, and establishes a connection. Coloring, as well as art, can become a great addiction. Our own creativity is only limited to one’s creativity. Teaching your child at a early age to color can lead to a productive artistic life. The possibilities are unlimited.
Coloring pages are great to keep around for projects or other events. If your child is bored, a crayon and coloring page can make all the difference for you and them. It takes pressure off you, so you can concentrate on what you need to do, and it takes the boredom out of them. Coloring pages are easy to fold up or even keep in your laptop case. You will notice the children will ask what new coloring pages you have for them and their curiosity wants to know what the next one will look like, or who it will be. The better they get at coloring, the more they will concentrate on making it a perfect piece of art. Happy Coloring!
