Learning the color of a chair, or an elephant, of flowers, sun, zebra, parrot etc, will not need mugging up, but mere practical activity that will leave an everlasting impression on these little developing minds. You can also engage them in activities like creating new colors by mixing 2 or 3 colors. This will make them understand the evolution of different colors, which is fun too..
It is not surprising to consider the ever growing popularity of coloring pages. They are continuing to be the best entertaining activity among kids. Never mind hot this world is emerging to be, coloring pages online or over sheets are becoming the most popular activity among all age children. Coloring papers are the best way to keep your kid pre-occupied and creatively engaged. They are meant especially for those kids who are noisy and very chaotic. As a parent you not only keep your child engaged but also help build up confidence in them. They tend to gain experience with colors and their righteous pairing.
At special occasions like the Holidays we pretty much blanket the walls of our house in Coloring Pages. In December there are pictures of Santa, Rudolph the Reindeer, Sleighs, Christmas Trees, Elves, Carol Singers and much more all over the house. While at Halloween no matter where you go in our home there will probably be a Pumpkin, Bat, Little Devil or Ghoul staring at you! I am careful to pack them all away carefully afterwards and intend to still be using them decades from now, much to the probable embarrassment of my son. So if you are a parent and are looking for easy and low cost ways to spend quality time with your children I would say use Coloring Pages, you really can't go wrong with them.
