When you are satisfied that you have an accurate drawing go ahead and paint in the base color of the animal. The base color is usually light and gets darker as you build the layers. Don't worry about making it look like fur or hair at this point. Next, use a dark color such as black or burnt umber to fill in the outline of the eyes, deep shadows, or other very dark areas. You will need to paint in the eyes, nose, mouth, paws, etc. If your drawing is detailed enough you should be able to do this by using a very small detail brush. Just outline everything and then fill it in with appropriate colors.
Elementary school is a tough time in the lives of many children. Most kids report a lot of boredom at school. They hate homework and would rather be playing outside. Although recess is fun, most of their time is spent doing some things that they find boring. Perhaps this is a good idea given that some kids will end up doing a job they don't like! However, shouldn't elementary school be a time when kids have some fun? Obviously you need to teach them some critical skills, but it is also important for them to enjoy themselves.
As you can see, when it comes to coloring and animals for elementary school children there is no limit to the creative ideas out there. Try brainstorming to come up with your own animal coloring craft ideas. Ask your students for good ideas−sometimes elementary school kids are the best source of ideas for teaching methods. Try different activities and figure out which ones really excite your students. A good animal coloring activity can really improve the level of enthusiasm in a class.
