Halloween, one of the funnest times of the year for kids and people of all ages! Starting when were little we stay around the house, still dressed up and slowly mature into getting more and more candy, and better and better costumes! Halloween goes by so quickly though, one night isn't much time to just enjoy the event, so there has to be something kids can do until and after the night right? Sounds like a perfect time for some Halloween Coloring Pages!! When I was young you needed to make the pictures from scratch yourself or if you were lucky you would get a book from your parents. Nowadays parents can print free ones at anytime and here are the best sites to do this and why!

Keep your kids Happy with these tips.

Wouldn't it be awesome, if only once as a mother or father you could rest your eyes for a few minutes? This is easy to accomplish by printing out the pages and making a book out of them. A great idea is to create a title page with a colored picture titled something like "Halloween Book (Year)" This way, you can have 15-40 pages and they can work on it all of October (or longer). As the years go by you can keep the books and see how they improve - this is specially good if your kid shows interests in Art at all. When I was younger I would love to see how I was improving each year (and not even know you were keeping a record). If you have a kid who really enjoys this, then try to get them to make one a day, kids improve there skills as they practice and you might even be noticing large differences in the same book!

Wait!

Tips for Art Supplies for Kids!

Just because you have the pages doesn't mean you have any tools yet! There are some products that are better then others, and though personal experience, here are my suggestions:

Crayons:
The best crayons are Crayola. Try to get a pack with 12-36 colors at least if there young. The smaller 6 pack is limiting and doesn't let a child really fully express him/herself at the time (unless there old enough to understand color blending etc)

Colored Pencils:
Colored Pencils are great. Crayola are good but there are some other brands that are around the same price and are better. Prang are really nice for there price, but these are often on the expensive side for little ones.

Markers:
Markers help slightly older kids get better color results. They often come out clear and are easy to use compared to a pencil or crayon. Smaller kids shouldn't use markers as much because there more tempted to write on everything. (Washable only!)


All other mediums would be best used by an older child. Normally, at least 13 or 14 for the extremely difficult or messy ones like pastels and paint. Of course, if your there with your child any medium can be used.

If your kids are serious about their art work I would recommend buying them a nice set of water color pencils, which blend much more nicely than the regular variety. You can even take a paint brush and water to add a cool paint like effect to your pictures.

"Funnest"???

Seriously. If you work with kids, at least try to use correct speech.
