“I’m bored!” These magical words can make any mom’s world spin. With summer break around eight-nine weeks away; it’s time to gear up all resources you can to keep your child busy and occupied. The easiest to get are the summer themed coloring pages and printables. Give your little one a beach, some sea shells, an ice-cream cone and some crayons; you can be guaranteed of peace for some time.
While the kids relax with the coloring pages, it’s important to remember a few tips.
– It’s all about coloring and not scribbling. Teach them the aesthetics of staying within lines.
– Display the good ones on the kitchen refrigerator. It keeps them motivated and encouraged.
– Laminate and turn them to posters or cards. A fun way for them to decorate the room.
