Just like reading stories in picture/illustrated books with their children, parents often use coloring pages to teach children and stretch their imagination. Standard coloring pages provide outlines within which children can color, but some art educators believe that free-form pages are an even better tool. A good example of these coloring books can be found at CreativeColoringBooks.
Now, everyone is always concerned about time, namely, having too little time. Too many things take up too much time. Errands take time, laundry takes time, meals take time. Add a child or two into the mix and time is of even greater importance. As Benjamin Franklin said, "Lost time is never found again." However, I would have to disagree with Mr. Franklin because of one crucial reason; Benjamin Franklin did not have the Internet. Since I don't believe this quote to be true, the question must be asked; how do I propose we win back our lost time? As far as I'm concerned, it is in this realm of free colouring pages that save the day.
Sometimes you find yourself at your wits end and the kids won't settle down no matter what you try. Even when no other activity will do coloring pages always seem to do the trick. Even in today's day and age of high-tech video games, and thousands of television stations coloring book pages have stood the test of time.
In the 2000 adaptation, when he was a baby, his first sign of hating Christmas was at birth; abandoned in Whoville, he landed outside a “Christmas party” (in reality a key party—something that did not yet exist at the time Seuss wrote the book) and was left out in the cold when none of the revelers inside noticed him. When he was taken in he showed violence to the holiday, mostly biting off the head of a Santa plate and drawing violence to him when he was in school. He falls for a Who-girl named Martha, when a large boy bullies him for being different and telling him he already has a beard, which only fuels his determination to make the greatest gift using family heirlooms, a tiny gramophone and a colander and throwing them into a very hot cooking pot. When he returns to school for the gift exchange with a bag on his head, the Grinch is bullied again, this time by the boy about his gift and the bag on his head, to which the teacher tells Grinch to take it off, revealing his futile attempts to shave his face, which causes the whole class, especially the teacher to laugh. This causes the Grinch to lose his temper, resulting in him throwing his gift at a pile of presents, picking up the tree and throwing it, yelling of his hatred for Christmas. The film thus provides a backstory for the Grinch’s resentment toward the holiday and the Whos, though Seuss himself simply explained it away as “no one quite knows the reason” in the book. The TV special The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat posits that the death of the Grinch’s mother may have also increased his grief and eliminated a positive influence on his life.

Coloring printouts are the best part in any kid's lives to express their feelings, ideas, thoughts and creative imagination. In fact it amuses parents when they see their child's performance. Sometimes kids exhibit stunning performances while showcasing their skills in application of colors.
That goes to show that the images on the books should be simple to relate with and identify. In addition, stick to books that have easy coloring pages, which have well-spaced images for sample coloring and ensure you have enough crayon and coloring pencils to for all. You can have two kids on a book each taking a turn to color an image. It is a great way of teaching them the values of sharing.
