Drawing boards. Craft and ideas
Children get bored very quickly by repetitive actions. Maybe it was a time when your child was crazy about coloring sheets but now he's already bored with them? No problem, the coloring sheets can be decorated otherwise!
An idea would be to teach him how to "customize" the coloring sheet with the help of small objects that can partially replace the color. Teach him to stick on beaded boards, coffee beans, bean beans, staples, matches, buttons, leaves, flowers and whatever you think is right. For example, a character's nose can be represented by a smaller button, the eyes with larger buttons, the mouth of a clasp, the eyebrows of two matched sticks and so on.
If you have woolen threads or thicker threads around the house and some glues you have solved part of the problem! Before you start, glue the sheet onto a thicker piece of cardboard for stability. Show the child how to glue the thread inside the coloring shapes, in an unorganized manner or by cutting them into pieces and forming "stripes". If you have colored animals with fur, you can cut into smaller pieces that will form after sticking the "hair" of the animal.
Rice and pasta
Look around the house for other things that might be useful. Rice and pasta are a good idea. Children can use pasta of any shape and size or rice and pasta and then color them with the marker after they have glued them.
You can combine the techniques, for example, you can allow the child to highlight the edges of the coloring form using the wool for contouring and for the interior to use rice. Another "ingredient" could be beans dried beans.
You can buy grains of different colors or you can take them white so that your little one can color them with the marker after gluing them. You can see an example of a bean curd in the picture below.
Cuttings and stickers
If you have time, you can make xerox copies of your family photos or take them to the printer and use them to make crying. For example, the child can cut the head of his puppy and stick it on the coloring contour. The rest of the body can be made using thick brown thread.
He can even cut himself and stick to the dog. Stickers are very popular with children and can also be added to the coloring pages. There are plenty of models in the trade from which you can choose.
He can cut and paste colored paper into the shapes on the board. This will help you learn the shapes of different objects more easily, for example by cutting a pair of ice creams, a ball or a basket. You can see an example of such a cry in the accompanying illustration.
Or he can break the colored paper into small pieces to stick to the sheet. And the aluminum foil can be very decorative for such activities and can be used in the same way or only for a few areas to add an extra shine.
Glitter in all forms
Also for brightness you can use the glitter. You can buy it in different forms (it exists in the form of paste, in the form of small adhesive stars and even in the form of glues). Just be careful to put a newspaper or foil under the floor because it can cause "damage" to the surrounding objects. Just as spectacular are the colored glass pebbles, the sand, the coarse salt, the beads or even the glittering ribbons.
