Just like reading stories in picture/illustrated books with their children, parents often use coloring pages to teach children and stretch their imagination. Standard coloring pages provide outlines within which children can color, but some art educators believe that free-form pages are an even better tool. A good example of these coloring books can be found at CreativeColoringBooks.
It's great that we have this enjoyment of Spiderman in common, it helps us connect and gives me a feeling of having a better bond with my son. I can talk to him about the Spiderman stories of my youth and his action packed adventures. Maybe it makes me a little "cooler", in his eyes, or at least I hope so!
No matter what the theme or the picture, all a child - or the young at heart - needs is the page and something to color with. Pencils, crayons, markers, watercolor paints, chalk. There are coloring books made specially to be used with water-colors, that come with their own little set of paints and brush, and have thicker pages.
Many churches of mainstream Christian denominations, including the Lutheran, Catholic, Orthodox, Methodist, Anglican, Moravian and Reformed traditions, distribute palm branches to their congregations during their Palm Sunday liturgies. Christians take these palms, which are often blessed by clergy, to their homes where they hang them alongside Christian art (especially crosses and crucifixes) or keep them in their Bibles or devotionals. In the period preceding the next year’s Lent, known as Shrovetide, churches often place a basket in their narthex to collect these palms, which are then ritually burned on Shrove Tuesday to make the ashes to be used on the following day, Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of Lent.
The coloring pages alone will keep the little ones busy. They can select a favorite character and print it, or they can even color the picture online. Alongside each picture is a palette of paints that they can click and drag to the outline to paint it before they print it. This option gives your kids the computer skills they'll be using when they go to school. It's fun and educational to visit Disney coloring pages!
Other uses of color printing are mainly in the production of office documents that need to be circulated widely to an inattentive audience. These include business cards and job cards, usually made colorful to attract a client. The technology is also used in the production of title pages and back pages of paperbacks and other book forms. Business establishments use color printing for promotional and advertorial purposes by creating beautifully illustrated ads that capture the attention of the viewer.

As she is leaving, her final request is often for me to print a few more pages for her to take home or even a large batch so she can share with her friends when they visit. Of course, as always I am too happy to oblige. Especially as it's so cheap to print them out. Few things are so cheap but can still make a child so happy these days.
