Have the children color various animals in whatever way they like. If a child wants to color a monkey purple allow them to do so. Then cut up various parts of the colored images. Cut the body parts off of the animals and place them in a pile on a table. Then have the kids assemble animals out of the parts. The final product will be a remarkable and weird compilation. This exercise usually really gets the kids laughing as they create funny and weird animals.
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.
Ask the children to color animals and plants appropriately. Many kids just like to color with any color in the set. However, you can teach them important things about animals and plants by making them use the correct colors. As children become excited about coloring, certain animals they begin to learn more about them. Have competitions where a child is to color a certain animal from a picture. You will soon find that the preschoolers are much quicker to identify different types of animals this way.
When painting animals with acrylic paint you will create a more realistic appearance if you use several thinned layers of paint. You thicken the paint as you want more detail. Think of your painting as a step by step process that is a three−dimensional object. It is important to realize that from the start. The first few layers of your painting will have an "unfinished" look. Don't give up during this unfinished stage. For a realistic appearance you are going to need several layers.
