So why the fascination, and how can they help you? Neuropsychologist Dr. Stan Rodski and brain scientist Dr. Joel Pearson both agree. In an interview, Dr. Rodski shares his belief that coloring for adults can encourage a relaxed state as the coloring individual focuses their attention on the detail and intricacies of a particular image. Similarly, Dr. Pearson explains that the therapeutic effect can be further understood by considering that the image you are coloring replaces any negative ones you may be harboring. So prepare ahead of time and make sure that you've got enough distractions for the kids so that the trip will be uneventful in terms of fighting. Siblings don't usually like sharing stuff so you'll need at least two of everything. Two sets of crayons, two sets of coloring books. And it's probably best to make sure that both sets are exactly the same so that they don't get into an argument over the perception that Billy's coloring book is better than Casey's.
As you take a step down memory lane, specifically recalling your favorite childhood pastimes, I'm sure you, like myself, can remember the pure and simple emotions you felt while occupying yourself and your time with those activities. Best of all of course are free pages that can be printed out at home any time you like. There is so much variety obtainable that as long as they have their pages and something to color with a child will never get bored. For many children, there is no greater gift they can give to Mom or Dad than a picture they coloured all by themselves. Inside or outside of the lines, any page coloured with love and happiness is a masterpiece. Color is an expression of life, and the living. Imagine a world without color? The basic of every color is black and white. We all know theta it is from the basic white light that gives us the bright and colorful rainbow with seven variety colors. Sometimes you find yourself at your wits end and the kids won't settle down no matter what you try. Even when no other activity will do coloring pages always seem to do the trick. Even in today's day and age of high-tech video games, and thousands of television stations coloring book pages have stood the test of time.
Coloring pages are also a fantastic way to engage the busy hands and minds of your fidgety kids on vacation trips in the car or by plane. You don't need to scratch your head over the children's entertainment during the rainy days or how to distract them at the doctor's waiting rooms. One of the most enjoyable things I can remember from my childhood is my love to draw and color and I see that with my own kids now as well. My little girl especially loves to color and of course most things should be pink. Coloring pages for girls specifically will give little girls pictures they will love to color so they can enjoy this wonderful creative activity. Of course this will include many princesses and perhaps dolls, puppies, teddy bears and kittens. Basically I think it comes down to anything cute. This approach has many benefits. First of all, kids enjoy coloring each of the alphabet letters, so they will learn without realizing it, because they are enjoying themselves. Digital coloring books allow you to print multiple copies of the same page. You only need to print the pages your child likes. This means less waste, and you are doing your bit for the environment. There is no need to worry about storing coloring books when kids are finished. Everything is in digital format and stored on your computer or storage device. I have a ton of scrapbooks now, all filled with his completed pages. I suspect I will love looking through these when I am older. The rest will go up on the walls of the house, mostly in the lounge or conservatory I imagine. By showing them off proudly I want to make clear to my boy how precious they are to me. By this I am hoping to build his self-confidence which was something I still suffer a lack of, so am keen to give my son the best head start in life that I can. When we get visitors to the house, whether friends or family you can also be sure they will comment on the artworks and tell my son what a great job he did. It seems to be having a good effect to as he has started to become more outgoing and will talk to near strangers now about his works, whats colors he used etc. Whereas before he would have been quiet with some folks, now he often offers to make them one straight away so they can take it home with them!
