My youngest cant keep the page steady so I stick it down with some sellotape and she can then take part! She just loves to color in their dresses and jewellery and the more brilliant and extravagant she can make them the better. She has really improved with her hand eye co-ordination and creativity since she started regularly using these too. I always ask her to autograph her amazing works of art and I can see over time how much better her writing has become. I know I will treasure these momentos when I am older.

The material. Some coloring books offer the ability for the child to simply run over the surface with the pens or crayons provided, and it will turn out to be the right color regardless. Some are more like paint books, and some have magic marker surfaces and come with markers that will not show up on any surface but the specially prepared book pages. Choose the book that best suits you and your child. If you are worried about markings on the walls, then don't select a pack of basic crayons, get something that uses special crayons.
