The first coloring book, "The Little Folks' Paint Book" was published in 1879. Crayola introduced the crayon in 1903. And the average American child spends 28 minutes a day coloring and wears down about 730 crayons by the age of 10. Between parents and schools, roughly 2.5 billion crayons are purchased each year. However, it is important to understand that using a coloring book for adults is not exactly the same as completing an art therapy session. While art therapy was first practiced in the 1940s, the first research on using adult coloring pages as therapy is generally believed to have only begun as recently the mid-90s. Digital coloring pages are much cheaper than expensive coloring books. You can print pages over and over again, whereas traditional products only allow each page to be colored once. You can decide what pages to print. There are pages kids will like and pages they will not want to color. Digital coloring books give you the choice of which pages to print and quantity of pages. Everyone from the harried parent to party hosts have found coloring to be a wonderful activity to engage the children in, and since the advent of many wonderful technologies such as the computer, internet and the printer we have gained access to the world of printable coloring pages. At any point in time from the early morning to late at night a child can get on the internet and look for printable coloring pages to keep themselves entertained.
That's what coloring pages and coloring books do for kids. They bring the imagination to life. They entertain kids bringing out creative and artistic talents. Yet coloring book pages can also educate kids, teaching them through various themes and concepts. Coloring book pages for kids are a classic, wonderful activity that they can enjoy endlessly. Just like reading stories in picture/illustrated books with their children, parents often use coloring pages to teach children and stretch their imagination. Standard coloring pages provide outlines within which children can color, but some art educators believe that free-form pages are an even better tool. A good example of these coloring books can be found at CreativeColoringBooks. My kids most of all like to color animals.
