Coloring books are a thing of the past. Kids today aren't as thrilled by a basic coloring book as children a generation ago. That is because these children have been spoiled by all the fantastic new methods of coloring using the computer or with fancy markers and pens. While you might get away with a coloring book and crayons for a long car trip, don't expect your school age children to sit quietly at the table coloring pictures the old fashioned way − there is a something better around, and they know it.
The contribution of bringing far more diversity to the coloring sheets and pages, has been made by the computer and the internet, both have emerged as a greater generator − that has opened an entirely new world of coloring and arena of drawing. Parents make very sizable livings creating, drawing and coloring images for computer animation including video games, movies, commercials and items most parents would never consider, such as some high−quality information websites.
Although it might seem like a strange teaching method, you can actually use coloring to teach a preschooler important lessons. One of the most basic lessons you will teach them are the names of the colors themselves. When a child is coloring help them to learn their colors by identifying the name of the color in a particular pencil or marker. In front of a group or individual, have a quiz where you ask them to mark specific colors on a blank sheet of paper. You can turn this activity into a little contest by awarding the first child who colors correctly a prize. As children start to learn to write have them write the names of the colors underneath patches of color.
