By On Sep 08, 2018 Kids Coloring
Keeping a consistent pressure with the crayon on the paper gives a uniform, pleasing look. If you’re pressing hard, your hands will get tired quickly, so I prefer to press lightly. Interestingly, being aware of how much pressure you’re applying seems to be really hard for younger children. It must be tied to motor skills in some way. It won’t hurt anything to tell them this tip, but if they aren’t implementing it, just let it go.
We have a fair number of young children in our community who aren’t reading yet, so I thought it would be nice to have a sample set of pre-colored pages from the My Body book for my tutors to show the class (…and I just like coloring.) I thought I could do this while helping my two sons with school last week, but they kept getting distracted! Instead of completing math sheets, they were watching me color and asking questions about how I was coloring. That’s when it occurred to me that I’d never really taught my kids how to color.
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.
