Most homes will have coloring pencils or crayons. In my house we also have glitter pens, foam pens and most importantly paints for the kids to select between. Using paints will require a little bit more setup time as you may need to clear an area and lay newspapers down over the table to protect it. No matter how old the child is they can still take part. My youngest cant keep the page steady so I stick it down with some sellotape and she can then take part! When children enter school, some of them have more trouble than others with simple tasks like writing and cutting with scissors. Children who have developed their fine motor skills tend to perform much better throughout their academic lives. One of the most enjoyable things I can remember from my childhood is my love to draw and color and I see that with my own kids now as well. My little girl especially loves to color and of course most things should be pink. Coloring pages for girls specifically will give little girls pictures they will love to color so they can enjoy this wonderful creative activity. Of course this will include many princesses and perhaps dolls, puppies, teddy bears and kittens. Basically I think it comes down to anything cute.
My youngest child enjoys saying that the care bears must be a million years old, the same age as me. As I stare at him I do not laugh because he made a funny statement but because I imagine the day when he is sitting at the table with his child and they make the same joke to him. Cowboy coloring book pages take every play time activity of cowboys and cowgirls and puts it on paper. It's fun and exciting to see kids unleash all their creativity with just a drawing and some crayons. And with a cowboy theme, there's nothing better! There are tons of printable cowboy coloring pages on the internet. Download pages and color in a saddle, a chuck wagon, or a pair of cowboy boots and you're just getting started. Enjoy hours and hours of fun with your kids coloring cowboy pages. They'll love it (and you just might too!) As you take a step down memory lane, specifically recalling your favorite childhood pastimes, I'm sure you, like myself, can remember the pure and simple emotions you felt while occupying yourself and your time with those activities.
