• Filling our printed coloring pages also gives the child the opportunity to spend some quiet and restful time without sitting in front of a television screen or playing video games. • Most importantly, these pages offer a parent a very good opportunity to spend quality time with the child since the activity can be completed without any stress. This is a good time to have long talks with the child and understand his or her needs, dreams and worries.
Besides helping the children to develop their imaginations, parents can utilize stories from the coloring pages to teach their kids practical lessons. While the children are enjoying the process of coloring the images, they can be taught values that are important for them to grasp at a young age. Lessons from the real world can also be taught at the same time. When parents take the time to tell their children stories as they color, the child's imagination is further strengthened and enhanced.
