If you haven't experienced Handy Manny yet then I can recommend you do so! First launched by Disney in 2006, this helpful handyman is a great role model for kids of all ages. As a parent I find it refreshing to have a positive character for my young boys to watch. Like all Disney programs for children there is no violence but what I enjoy the most is the fact Manny doesn't use computers. It is good to see a show that teaches the benefits of gaining real world skills and the rewards of having a trade. It's a yucky weekend. The children are whining. You can't send them to the yard to run off energy. So how to keep them amused? Children of all ages love to color, and you could keep a stack of coloring books on the shelf. Alternatively you might get on the computer and with just a quick search find and print off coloring pages to appease each kid! No more sheets? Print off even more! Even you the adult can maybe locate one or two to trip your interest. What superior method to interact with your kiddos than chilling around the craft table passing around the color crayons or markers? Have older youngsters? Select a complex landscape then give them a selection of water colors. Another idea is to take the cut out characters and add them into a new scene of your making. Get a bigger blank piece of paper and stick them in to make an action packed scene, or as my youngest calls it, "A Party!". Her cute and happy manner mean she is a great subject to color in. Its a very safe and wholesome image with plenty to fire the imagination of our children. She is soft, simple and round, made up of easy shapes and easy for our kids to grasp.

First, Fairies are a very safe addiction! No kidding, once you see the wonderful fairy art that is on the internet, you could very well find yourself in love with creating the little creatures. When I was a little girl I was truly mad about Barbie, Royal Doulton Figurines, fairy tales and Coloring. Years later... and I mean quite a few years later, I have rolled all of these interests into fairy coloring and drawing. Well, coloring a fairy is a very important step towards being a fairy artist. There are so many false premises about becoming an artist. So many people believe that if they were not born drawing, that art is something they cannot take part in. I believe coloring is an excellent way to begin the process of becoming a fairy artist. There are also varying degrees of being an artist. There are so many benefits to getting involved in art, beyond just the outcome. People wonder if online colouring pages are educational as they find it difficult to believe that they do. They are educational as children learn to value hard work and dedication to their tasks they are assigned and they learn to experience a sense of accomplishment after completing something. Children also learn self-discipline as they concentrate on colouring online. They learn to complete a task before starting the next one. It is important for children to learn to complete activities in the classroom as it is the key to their academic success.
