Nadine Guyot December 26, 2019 Coloring Pages for Toddler
Children are fascinated by colors. Since they are relatively new to this world, and are exceedingly curious and perceptive, they consider each new hue and shade to be exquisite and exceptional, unlike us, who have learned to take all the colors in the world for granted, and don't even look twice at any new shade as such, believing it to be just another part of the surrounding environment. Kids, however, witness and perceive everything, and are always eager to let their knowledge flow to others through various means, verbal and non-verbal. While the verbal means are also important, the non-verbal ones are much more fun-oriented. These include various kinds of coloring books and, talking about the new generation, free printable coloring pages from the internet.
When we buy a rattle for a child, they are intrigued by the color and sound of it. Flying objects like a silly cloth hanging on the clothesline attracts their attention and they are often found squealing at the curtain or moving colourful items. Once the motor skills are achieved, probably by the age of two, it is the best time to introduce them to the colourful world.
Coloring is a fun-activity for children of all age groups. It is a potent educational tool that stimulates the overall development of a child. Toddlers get introduced to the concept of through the scribbling activity. It involves giving them any color stick and making them use it aimlessly on a blank sheet. They also enjoy scribbling on newspapers, books, and even walls. The colored lines that appear as a result of their activity give them a sense of achievement.
Make a garden, a mountain, river with boats, fishes and a wide mouthed crocodile. Draw a star, sing a rhyme on astronomy and let your child color all the pictures. Clap hard and praise well ignoring the mess. Draw an edge for them near the outline and tell them to color the hair in black, brown or golden. They will slowly become independent and present you a colored picture for approval. Outline alphabets, balls, houses, blocks and get them to know about magenta, turquoise and ash blue. Mix colors for them. Teach them to count and recognize words but end the revisions with coloring.
You can create your own book full of simple coloring pages. You only need enough strong quality paper and a creative eye to sketch the images. The images should have thick lines to show distinctive features. You can make coloring books of the alphabet, nature, numbers, the world and countries, animals or cartoons. However, you should keep in mind that the book should not only be a fun filled coloring thing but an educative tool too. In addition, keep it go for simple shapes that even the toddler can try to sketch.
Other than this, again, these printable coloring pages will help develop your child's finer motor skills, such as eye-hand coordination etc, and will also help develop their concentration and determination towards completing a given task in an adequately satisfactory manner. They will also learn a lot of concepts through the means of these printable coloring pages.
