First, Fairies are a very safe addiction! No kidding, once you see the wonderful fairy art that is on the internet, you could very well find yourself in love with creating the little creatures. When I was a little girl I was truly mad about Barbie, Royal Doulton Figurines, fairy tales and Coloring. Years later... and I mean quite a few years later, I have rolled all of these interests into fairy coloring and drawing. Well, coloring a fairy is a very important step towards being a fairy artist. There are so many false premises about becoming an artist. So many people believe that if they were not born drawing, that art is something they cannot take part in. I believe coloring is an excellent way to begin the process of becoming a fairy artist. There are also varying degrees of being an artist. There are so many benefits to getting involved in art, beyond just the outcome. When I was a kid I just loved Superheroes and cartoons. It's no surprise then that my favourite thing to do was to watch Spiderman Cartoons! I would plan my whole day around them to make sure I didn't miss them, often running home from school just to see them, even if I knew they were repeats. 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. Once upon a time, there was a little girl who gets fond of exploring the different places in the space. Everybody was amazed because in spite of her young age, she has a brilliant mind for knowing numerous dialects. Could it be the effect of her continuous quest?
Here's an idea, ask your child to make up a tale about what is happening in the scene and fire up their imagination. You will also find that little moments of praise from you can really all add up to a kids sense of self worth and confidence in later life. This is a fantastic way to help your little ones learn their colours, shapes, and verbs for items such as hair, dress, legs, chin etc. As your children work, help them pick up the correct names of things they are working on, like chin, cars, pets etc. Oh, and this is a fantastic way to teach colours to your kid. If your kid likes sports you are at the right place. In the sports coloring page category you can find: boxing coloring pages, tennis coloring pages, soccer coloring pages, rugby coloring pages, hockey coloring pages, baseball coloring pages e.t.c. So, what is it that makes fairy coloring such a worthwhile pursuit? This is my opinion, obviously, but here goes. When a child, or an adult faces a crisp white coloring page it is the beginning of an adventure. It gives a little feeling of elation and wonder. It might give you a little feeling of fear or confusion. Trust me, if you relax and realize that you are doing this "just for the fun of it". This cliche is true. Any art is really for the fun of it. For the exploration and adventure.
