Crayola's 100 Super Tip Washable Markers

What a thrill when these Crayola Super Tip markers came in the mail this morning. We love coloring! And everyone who loves coloring knows that there is no greater joy than a fresh box of crayons or markers. So it should come as no surprise that this pack of 100...Yes! 100 markers! thrilled everyone, even DaMama.

7 Reasons To Color With Your Children (Re-Post)

1. Coloring Encourages Creativity

Children and adults like to plan and implement a color arrangement on a page. This creative process is especially fun for children. Which brings us to the next reason why you should color as a family.

2. Coloring Boosts Confidence

Children love showing their work off. They are very proud of their coloring choices and how their pages turn out. It is easy to accomplish a finished coloring page and putting that page up for display or sending it to a relative is a great way to boost children's confidence. Little ones especially like it when you help them color parts of their page. They just like being with you.

3. Coloring Is Relaxing.

Spending undistracted time with your children is another reason to take up coloring. It is relaxing for you as you can focus on one simple activity and put away your cares for a little while. It is good for them to have your attention. Get some nice markers or colored pencils and get serious about your own coloring page. Unwind, de-stress, and spend time with your kids.

4. Coloring Increases Focus And Attention Spans

Adults and children alike can increase their ability to focus and develop longer attention spans through coloring. There are so many distractions in life. Sitting down to one project from start to finish is very beneficial especially during the plugged-in age.

5. Coloring Is An Unplugged Activity

Coloring is very accessible and requires time away from electronics. It encourages eye-hand coordination and promotes interaction and conversation with other members of the family. A strong family spends most of their freetime engaged in unplugged activities.

6. Coloring Is Inexpensive And Portable

You can take coloring with you anywhere. It requires no plugs or chargers. Crayons and pages like these free coloring pages for Catholics are inexpensive to print off the internet.

7. Coloring Is For All

Coloring is for all ages and talent levels. It is a good way to spend time together as a family.
