Choose a surface to color on. If you are using a loose leaf coloring page you will want 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 (permanent markers, for example, may bleed through your paper and leave stains). 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.
I like to lightly color the dominate color first and leave a bit of paper exposed for the wax of the second color to cling to. In the liver I colored (below), I started by coloring a layer of red, then I colored some brown on top. Then I colored more red over the top. I find this kind of layering to be really fun! There you have it! Share these tips with your students and all they’re coloring will be beautiful! These are also great tips for coloring with erasable colored pencils!
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.
