Wild and woolly weather outside and nothing for the kids to do how about kid coloring pages. All children love to color in and its much better for them to color on a peice of paper than on your walls or floors. Most children love to display their work but sometimes computer paper can be quite expensive when children are young and only put one or two lines on the page and then say they are finished. There are cheaper alternatives to computer paper and give just as much if not more enjoyment to your child but also utilise both sides of the paper twice the amount of time on one peice of paper.
Check around at your local cheap shop for a 100 to 150 page coloring activity book and then carefully tear out the pages or cut them out. You will then see that this will give you one page with two pictures on it front and back. Get your child to pick through the pictures until they find one that they want to color in and let them go to it. When they have finished that picture turn it over and get them to color in the other side of the picture. This will keep them entertained for ages if they are tempted to just color one color then encourage them to make it more colorful because you something special planned for their picture once they have finished but they need to make it colorful.
Once they are finished there a few different things that you can do with their terrific art work that your kids will think is very special. One is to laminate it and use it as a placemat for them to put their dinner plate on and eat their dinner off of They will be proud as punch to sit down at the table with their own artwork on display at it. Another is to put it in a display folder with clear sleeves to display both sides of their picture this works well because your child can go to their display folder and look at their work and also you will have a neat folder to display their work for years to come, and the other is to stick it up on their bedroom window so when they are inside they can see the picture but when they are playing outside they can see the other picture that they have colored in. So as you can see their are many uses for kid coloring pages.
