My youngest loves the color coloring pages. After I put them out someone said, my child does not like to use crayons. Well you don’t have to just use crayons or colored pencils with these pages!
I thought I would should you 5 different ways that we use them. It is always fun to do something different with something we have. Here are the 5 different ways we use them: tissue paper, stamp pad, Watercolor, finger paints, and dot maker.
Tissue paper is really fun to do and we love it! Plus this is great for when you are doing the color white! If you have a child who wont do anything other than white this makes it fun.
Foam Blocks and Stamp Pad
We use foam blocks and stamp pad to do some painting. The stamping and the foam blocks (that we got from Target) are a great fine motor activity. Plus this gives a different style to the coloring. This example uses the Christmas Color Coloring Pages.
Watercolor are easy to use and plus there are many variations of the different colors. This makes a fun way to color as well.
Finger Paints are great for those kids that love a sensory experience with painting with their hands. This is easy and can be used for many different ages.
Dot Maker are fun and easy to use. There are a lot of variations in the colors you can get. These are also great for little hands to use as well.
