My daughter loves coloring, but not in usual paper and crayon way. The walls of our house and her body parts are her canvas! While I read a newspaper, she sneaks up from the back and starts coloring all the ‘O’s and ‘D’s in the text. BTW, This is also a great way to keep a preschooler busy. Just ask her to identify and circle or color a certain alphabet from the text in the newspaper or a magazine.
