These Crayola coloring pages will keep your children entertained for hours
Coloring pages are a great way to keep kids entertained for hours without resorting to tech. Crayola coloring pages are perfect for young artists who want low-pressure activities. They offer just enough creative freedom to engage kids in what they’re doing without putting off kids who aren’t necessarily interested in creating their own drawings from scratch or confident enough to do so. Choosing the right Crayola coloring pages for your child’s age group and interests will help keep them entertained for longer.
What are coloring pages?
The terms “coloring pages” and “coloring books” are often used interchangeably, but there is a slight difference. Coloring books are traditionally bound, so you’ll need to cut pages out if you want to display them, plus pages are often double-sided. Coloring pages are either completely loose or bound with a weak glue, so you can easily pull them out of the book without tearing them. They’re also single-sided, so you can display all of your kids’ coloring-in if you choose. For more information, see the full guide to coloring books for kids at BestReviews.
Are Crayola coloring pages suited to kids of all ages?
You can find Crayola coloring pages for kids of all ages and adults too, but not all Crayola coloring books are suited to all ages. Standard Crayola coloring books are aimed at ages three and up. While there’s no upper age limit listed, they aren’t all that challenging so that most kids will grow out of them somewhere between ages 6 to 8. Crayola Art with Edge coloring books are aimed at an older audience of nine and up. These have smaller coloring areas, which can be more challenging to keep within the lines, paired with more grown-up designs that appeal to older kids and teenagers.
