Kids and color appreciation

As modern parents, we are aware of the lessons that children learn from participating in sports and competitive activities. To expose your child  to physical activity and limit creative stimulation is only developing part of the person. Luckily, there is a world of FREE color  information out there waiting for you to share with your child.

Everyone knows that a child loves to color. Children love color and are less intimidated by the use of color than adults. As we age, we have learned what the world thinks is incorrect use of color. Kids start out non-biased and should be encouraged to discover color and appreciate it at an early age. Color allows self-expression that few other vehicles offer.

In Harrisburg, we are fortunate to have Pennsylvania government departments that have their own coloring books. They are downloadable and have images that will teach your child how to be responsible with nature and natural resources. It is a great way for your little one to learn social responsibility. The wildlife department is one example.

Another fun color project for your kids can be found at The words to the song "I can sing a rainbow" are found here, along with the tune for a dance extravaganza. Follow the song with a fabulous online coloring book at that has magic crayons. It's a winning combination with all the color creativity and none of the color mess.

Take a minute to look for all the resources for your child to be introduced to color.

Coloring within the lines is optional.
