Colouring in pages which you can print out from home are a great alternative to buying colouring books.
Online colouring activities on Kidspot include hundreds of free children's printable colouring pages for your little one to create hours of fun. Colouring in is an activity for kids of all ages, with younger toddlers preferring to ignore the "colour in the lines" rule — be prepared for a little creativity and fun rather than a neat presentation of a coloured image.
Some learning experts worry that giving children colouring in pages too young can stifle their creativity and somehow hinder their ability to draw and master creating hand-drawn shapes. Colouring in activities do help with hand-eye co-ordination, though.
Colouring in is also a great activity to help children develop their fine motor skills, which can help develop things like writing, dressing and being able to feed themselves later on. It can be useful not only as an activity to do on a rainy day, but ultimately help them meet developmental milestones later on.
