Most homes will have coloring pencils or crayons. In my house we also have glitter pens, foam pens and most importantly paints for the kids to select between. Using paints will require a little bit more setup time as you may need to clear an area and lay newspapers down over the table to protect it. With the availability of multiple images offered by today's technology you will never be at a loss for finding the image you want. If you can't find the exact image you are looking for you may be able to find somebody who would be willing to create one for you and a new creation will be born! Next time you are looking for a coloring page for your kids take a quick look at what is available right at your finger tips from your computer. With just an internet connection you will have limitless resources to entertain on those rainy days. Instead of buying coloring books of the child's favorite cartoon or movie characters, use the internet to look up some coloring pages for Disney, Pokemon, princesses, Barbie or whatever your child's particular passion is. There is an endless selection from which to choose.

You will also find that little moments of praise from you can really all add up to a kids sense of self worth and confidence in later life. This is a fantastic way to help your little ones learn their colours, shapes, and verbs for items such as hair, dress, legs, chin etc. As your children work, help them pick up the correct names of things they are working on, like chin, cars, pets etc. Oh, and this is a fantastic way to teach colours to your kid.
