Coloring pages can provide enrichment by providing pictures of numbers, letters, animals, and words, so that your child will expand their knowledge in a number of areas. Your child will receive the greatest educational benefit when the coloring pages bring all of these elements together, such as when there is a picture of an animal with it’s name written on the page, or when numbers are shown with the name of the number written out, or even a two-sided coloring page with one side showing the letter, number or word, and the other side of the page depicting an animal whose shape resembles the letter or number on the previous page.
Individual character websites also often have great coloring pages to print. For example, by searching Google for the Strawberry Shortcake website, you can print a large number of high quality coloring sheets that will delight any little girl. You can try looking up other favorite characters for your child, such as Thomas the Tank Engine, Bob the Builder, and Curious George, and you’ll find some free coloring sheets you can print out at each site. It’s like having a hundred different coloring books at your disposal all the time.
And, as they grow older, you will also begin to see that they will color animals the color that they truly are. This may seem obvious to somebody who has known their colors since they can remember, but you had to learn it at some point and this is a great way for your child to learn theirs.
