Hee Hawww! Yahoo! Giddy Up! What kid hasn't imagined themselves King (or Queen) of the rodeo? Can't you picture it? A western landscape...hot and dusty...sunny and smokey. And who arises from this scene? None other than the fastest-firing-gunslinger in all the west! This kid epitomizes what a cowboy should be. Decked out like the cowboys of cowboys in a: vest and tie, cowboy boots, rodeo jeans covered by chaps, gun and holster, with the coolest cowboy hat to complete the look. Now that's a cowboy! And that's just what your kids are imagining...that they are REAL cowboys and cowgirls! 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. The coloring page has many benefits. It's an activity, number one, that keeps the kids happily involved. Number two, it encourages the artistic side of your children and number three, encourages several developing skills, such as coordination, decision-making and follow through when they finish their coloring pages. Coloring pages are a great way to entertain children during travel or on a rainy day. Once a child has grasped the basics, they may color to their heart's content with very little supervision required by parents. In addition to occupying a child's time and imagination, handling crayons can prepare a child's brain and hands for skills required to learn handwriting. While an adult may feel the sky must always be blue and the grass green, a child will experiment with all of the colors. Be sure to show pride in your child's creation and reserve a spot on the refrigerator for their best works of art.
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. There may be many fun games for kids over internet but coloring pages from Disney story books have no substitute. They can be provided by school teachers as a fun activity too. But you also need to award your child when he is done with the coloring. Kids need appreciation and it can be done by encouraging them through rewards. 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.
