Coloring isn’t just busy work, it’s also great for developing skills such as:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Imagination
  • Creativity
  • Visual motor skills
  • Independence

And don’t forget to allow your child to color these coloring pages in anyway they’d like. This means they don’t HAVE to stay inside the lines. They don’t have to color the butterflies in a symmetrical pattern. They can add extra designs wherever they wish. Let them create however they desire!
