My youngest child enjoys saying that the care bears must be a million years old, the same age as me. As I stare at him I do not laugh because he made a funny statement but because I imagine the day when he is sitting at the table with his child and they make the same joke to him.
And more often than not children want to watch TV or play games on the computer whenever there seems to be nothing else to do. Think about this, how often do you see children running around while playing outside? These days the answer is seldom to never are children playing outside. And there are many reasons for this too, it's often times just too dangerous for kids to play outside unattended.
Apart from watching his shows, we love to sit and color in pictures of our favourite superhero. It's been great seeing how he has improved over the years. First with his hand eye concentration, then his autograph and definitely his imagination has gotten a boost. He is very creative. Nowadays when we have finished we often cut out the characters and then stick them on the walls or the fridge and position them so they are acting out an action scene.
To expand those intellectual capabilities and help the brain grow coloring pages are a very good form of intellectual exercise.
If I don't know where to publish new coloring page - I put it Misc category. Different topics, characters, objects is here. If you don't know what do you really want - this category for you. All the drawings is printable. We have buttons for printing and downloading at the right part of page. All new coloring pages appeared here. And then I'll carry it to the proper category. By the way, do you know, that in every page of coloring page, at the bottom you can find links to other coloring pages. So you don't need to go to the category - you can follow direct to the page.
In the most basic sense, the act of applying colored media to intricate line drawings is a benefit to relaxation and stress reduction. You are able to put the outside world aside for the moment and focus on the art of coloring singularly.
Whether you are a preschool teacher or a parent, you will only be all too aware of the need to keep your children constantly occupied and amused, otherwise they will get restless, agitated and irritable. Trying to do find an activity that will sustain their interest for any reasonable length of time as well as one that will not actually pose any level of risk or danger to the child can be a task easier said than done. Contrary to what you may think, children are not involved in a mass conspiracy designed specifically to make your life as difficult as possible, rather, they lack the emotional and intellectual maturity to appreciate that certain activities are wrong, or are "naughty" because they are dangerous.
