As parents, you have the duty to support the child to understand the importance of color and help the kid to make the meaningful image with colors to create the story, which the kid likes, understands and finds delightful. In this manner the kid is drawn to the world of color and understands varieties and also right colors to insert at the right places to make out the meaning of the story.
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.
Learning the color of a chair, or an elephant, of flowers, sun, zebra, parrot etc, will not need mugging up, but mere practical activity that will leave an everlasting impression on these little developing minds. You can also engage them in activities like creating new colors by mixing 2 or 3 colors. This will make them understand the evolution of different colors, which is fun too. Children who spend time coloring and painting in their growing up years are studied to have an improved concentration, and also creative in their work. They are trained to think and be creative in their thinking, and have ability to perceive and grasp better.
