How Online Coloring Resources Replace Physical Coloring Books

Apr 24, 2008
Children are often associated with having a very small attention span. But kids are always entertained by the wonders of coloring books- whether they be online or offline. But as parents soon come to find, the online versions of coloring books have very interesting benefits. It's interesting to see online coloring books save time, effort, and money for hard working parents.

Coloring pages that come in stores will commonly be a few dollars. By itself, this isn't necessarily a terribly expensive price. But as kids can go through such books at a rate of several per month, the costs add up for consumers who don't necessarily have a large fortune ready to suffice the coloring needs of children. In this case, the Internet has many coloring websites that are completely free.

Another big advantage to online coloring is that there is no mess involved. Crayons, paint, and other types of coloring tools will usually leave stains on clothing, carpet, and tables. Since the Internet only requires the usage of the mouse, there is no mess to clean up afterwards. It's a nice change from the norm for parents who don't have time to clean up after every crayon or paint incident that occurs.

For kids who want to color on the go, such as in a car or airplane, the Internet is probably a poor decision. But the neat thing about some online coloring websites is the fact that kids can print out the coloring pages for later usage. This not only still saves money for the consumer, but gives children something to do on long trips that would otherwise be frustrating for parents.

Children who have imaginations that run wild are often unsatisfied with the common coloring book. This is because printing costs allow for only a limited amount of pages to be printed in order for the publisher to make a profit. Thanks to such costs, children may only get a few designs to color in. Online resources, however, contain thousands of different designs that are continually updated- meaning boredom will never set in.

Children also have much to gain from using online resources for coloring books. It is common for a child to get frustrated with only using a few colors to fill in their masterpiece with. If that's the case- they will be overjoyed in knowing that current technologies commonly allow for thousands of different colors to be displayed on a computer screen without any effort at all.

Final Comments

All in all, the average coloring book still serves a purpose. But the online alternative offers so many more benefits that it is just a better choice to side with technology. The fact that coloring books can be free, have thousands of designs, and even thousands of colors in which to use can equate into hours upon hours of entertainment. And for parents looking for a peace of mind, this can be a very valuable aspect of online coloring communities indeed.
