People are making the adult coloring books bestsellers on Amazon! At the time of this writing, eight of the top twenty books on the bestsellers list, are coloring books for adults. There must be something behind this recent growth in interest.
If you are looking for the most affordable child activity in the world you have come to the right place. The activity that I am referring to is colouring. To be more specific I am talking about free online colouring pages. This is an activity that has always seemed to captivate children and allow them to use their creativity in a positive way.
The net, activity booklets in dollar stores, family restaurants, or even sometimes at public libraries are sources of coloring pages, simple black and white drawings most commonly of cute cartoon characters.
Most early forms of motion pictures or film were black and white. Some color film processes, including hand coloring were experimented with, and in limited use, from the earliest days of motion pictures. The switch from most films being in black-and-white to most being in color was gradual, taking place from the 1930s to the 1960s. Even when most film studios had the capability to make color films, the technology’s popularity was limited, as using the Technicolor process was expensive and cumbersome. For many years, it was not possible for films in color to render realistic hues, thus its use was restricted to historical films, musicals, and cartoons until the 1950s, while many directors preferred to use black-and-white stock. For the years 1940–1966, a separate Academy Award for Best Art Direction was given for black-and-white movies along with one for color; similarly, from 1939–1966 (excepting 1957), a separate Academy Award for Best Cinematography was given for both black-and-white and color movies.
Characters that children love, like Pokemon, Dora, Barbie, Thomas the train, Scooby the Dog, Donald Duck etc and many more can be easily accessed and printed out for them to add their own imagination of colors. Coloring can be a family activity as well. It is one of the best ways to spend time creatively with your child and bond well. Thus you can spend a relaxing time that is a brain tonic for your child too!
