Coloring books are where most kids start to develop their artistic dexterity. They are available relatively cheap, they are often related to cartoon characters or objects familiar to very young children. They provide guidelines for children who are learning to control their hand movements by "coloring inside the lines".
The best part is these free colouring pages are just a click away. If you have an Internet connection you can easily download and print them for free. You can easily supply your child with an endless supply of coloring book pages that they will soon thank you for.
In case, you still need to add any other note or detail, do it on the back of your invitation card. Build the excitement by delivering your invitations with a small bottle of bubbles or a pop-up sponge! You can also get personalized Sponge-Bob party invitations from Birthday in a Box. Hang blue streamers (two shades would be great) all around the party area and also keep some SpongeBob printable coloring pages so the younger children can color and enjoy.
I can recall vividly my father introducing me to coloring in sheets as a hobby, and now I am doing the same with my child. Never mind how the world changes, our children nowadays love to color in just as much as we did when we were young. Kids love to show off what they can do by using their paints on the coloring sheets you give them.
After spending hectic hours in school kids can relax as they turn on the computer and start colouring. It is a great activity particularly as it replaces paper colouring. Colouring pages aid teachers and other educators with pictures rather than confusing them with the words. Pictures help young children understand what they are taught far better than words ever could. Colouring online is beneficial for young children as it teaches them concentration, self-discipline, dedication, a sense of achievement, complete tasks, the knowledge they had done their best and most importantly to boost their confidence and help them succeed in life.
Don't limit what they can offer due to the fact that they don't have many supplies to work with. You can even consider offering them craft supplies such as glue and glitter, cotton, ribbon, and other items that can all become a part of the Spongebob coloring pages they are completing.
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.
