Ah, coloring. This fun and simple activity has so many benefits for kids. Coloring can help little ones develop motor skills, encourage concentration, and foster creative expression. For older kids, coloring offers a moment of meditation, a chance to slow down and relax without the use of screens.

If you’re hoping to encourage your kids to put down the tablet in favor of crayons and colored pencils, try having a family coloring session, reading aloud while they scribble away, or just handing over one of these delightful coloring books they’re sure to enjoy!
