Find a surface to color on. If you are using a loose leaf coloring page you will need to find a hard surface to work on, while coloring books allow you more flexibility. When using on loose sheets of paper, you may want to cover your work surface in newspaper depending on the coloring utensils you’ve chosen (markers may bleed through your paper and leave behind marks). When using coloring books, you can use your lap as a coloring surface if you’d like to draw while in bed on the couch, for example. You may still find it easier to have a more flat and solid surface to work on, though.
In some circumstances, like this one, you can color outside the lines because you’ll cut the piece out afterwards. This allows you to use large consistent strokes, as you can see in the red kidney above and on the right. This is an especially helpful tip for younger students who are coloring the organs in this My Body project. Just be sure not to use this tactic on the upper half of the heart in the My Body book because we won’t trim around all those veins and arteries.
If there are some areas you want to accent, you can press a little harder on the crayon and end up with a darker, more intense color. This is another good reason to color lightly for full coverage. For example, in this picture of the heart below, I pressed harder when tracing the lines within the heart and in the vein and artery openings. I did the same thing when coloring the muscles and the brain.
