As a parent or guardian, you probably love to hear the phrase, "Look what I made!" When you child has an opportunity to create physical representations of his or her imagination, thoughts, and experiences, he or she gains confidence. Drawing can help your child feel more intrinsic motivation, self−worth, and validity. This affirmation will make him or her more confident in other areas that may not come as naturally as drawing.
Online coloring pages are a great, free way to entertain your children. Many websites offer coloring pages and printable activities for children that are free for anyone with a computer, internet access and a printer. Instead of buying coloring books of the child's favorite cartoon or movie characters, use the internet to look up some coloring pages for Pokemon, princesses, Barbie or whatever your child's particular passion is. There is an endless selection from which to choose.
Children form many connections and ideas of how the painting process works for them, as well as what they enjoy about it. Watch a child painting and you will see a fully engaged child. We can almost see children's thoughts, such as, "When I push my brush flat, my line gets bigger", or "I like stirring this, but I don't want to put it on paper or touch it", or "I mixed red with more red and orange, and got fire color red!" While we listen and observe, we may begin to understand the way a child perceives his world, his developmental abilities, and his needs or interests.
Many coloring pages also come with activities: connect dot to dots, match the pairs, find the items out of place in the picture, count how many green umbrellas on the picture, in this labyrinth find the way that will help the fireman get the kitty out of the tree and many others. These are all examples of the everyday things children can learn from simple coloring pages. Coloring books can also be used to help you teach children the creative way of making toys by their own hands, using only colored picture, scissors and glue.
