Easy Mega-Coloring Sheet Alternative to Coloring Book

Don’t get me wrong – coloring books are great. We have dozens of them! But sometimes, it’s just fun to super-size things and really let the kids go wild.

What I love about this easy to set-up giant coloring sheet is that it gives so much blank space to fill. The kids can be creative with the people themselves, or draw other images and pictures around them.

If you have multiple kids, you can have them work on this together to create a mural or give them their very own space to be creative, too.

Load them up with lots of different supplies so they can experiment with the colors and textures. If you are looking for more craft supplies, don’t miss our comprehensive guide!

Why Coloring is Great for Fine Motor Skills

We all know that coloring helps identify the colors and learn about them, but don’t forget that it’s so good for fine motor skills.

Before a child starts to trace or write letters and numbers, coloring is one of the best things they can do to strengthen fine motor skills and pencil grip!

This easy coloring sheet allows children to hold onto different-sized objects like crayons and markers and learn how to color with them appropriately. This is an excellent way for them to get used to working the muscles in their fingers and hands
