Now I am too old to watch Spiderman cartoons on my own, which is why it is great that I can do so with my son! He's a great excuse for me to sit and relive my youth! I grew up during the time of doodle art - remember those? You got a pack of felt markers and elaborate black line drawings on a number of themes. I would spend hours coloring these in! Little did I know then that coloring pages were a benefit to my well-being. These days color by number printables come in a variety of artistic forms. You could choose among a number of cartoon characters and/or pets, cars and so on and so forth. If your son or daughter likes Lilo and Stitch, without doubts, you can find a lot of colour by number pages with the characters of that cartoon.
Learning the color of a chair, or an elephant, of flowers, sun, zebra, parrot etc, will not need mugging up, but mere practical activity that will leave an everlasting impression on these little developing minds. You can also engage them in activities like creating new colors by mixing 2 or 3 colors. This will make them understand the evolution of different colors, which is fun too..

The shapes and colors will keep him busy and his mind occupied in making the best use of colors and drawings.
