Thanks so much for posting these links!!  I love the space bubble letters!

I'm going to take this opportunity to remind everyone that adults like to do coloring pages, too!! ;)  Especially if you buy yourself that huge new box of crayons... ;D

This looks awesome! 8) ;D

And I do like to (let 'my' kids) draw. I don't do 'coloring pages' though, if they are what I think they are. There are better ways to stimulate your fine motor skills. ;) :)

Yes i agree, Even though the concept of colouring in is understood and very much enjoyed i think you’ll find even on pintables children tend to add bits to them and draw all round the edges and make them their own! I love that.  ;D  :D

I’ve also found that my children enjoy being able to choose images from a computer and are fascinated how they can then be printed off, and then how their creations can be viewed on screen, i guess they are learning something from that too?  ::) 

I found this link interesting (different age group though)

It will be lovely to see all your childrens drawings – maybe over in the little zoo gallery?  :)

Yeah, I did mean 'colouring in' and I think what your children do is proving the point I learned on my uni.. kids can do better. ;D ;) (We were not allowed to use 'colouring in' prints, as it doesn't stimulate them to be creative.) What you also could do is take a black marker and draw a random line on a white paper (not a straight line) and let them make something of it. :) But if they enjoy the printables at home, let them have fun with it I'd say!

Yep. :)

The link is not working for me (at the moment?).. :(

But I'll have a look through my school pictures and see what (astronomical related) arts I find. :D

Oh I can now read the article!

And she does have a few good points. However, I don't understand why she suddenly starts talking about 'coloring in prints' (point 8 and 9), while in a lot of ways they are different from the rest she is saying (point 1, self expression, on blank paper!) I would love to see some scietific evidence of those two points, as I don't believe a word of it! :D (<- maybe you shouldn't have got me started.. ;D ;))
