My youngest child enjoys saying that the care bears must be a million years old, the same age as me. As I stare at him I do not laugh because he made a funny statement but because I imagine the day when he is sitting at the table with his child and they make the same joke to him. Now, everyone is always concerned about time, namely, having too little time. Too many things take up too much time. Errands take time, laundry takes time, meals take time. Add a child or two into the mix and time is of even greater importance. As Benjamin Franklin said, "Lost time is never found again." However, I would have to disagree with Mr. Franklin because of one crucial reason; Benjamin Franklin did not have the Internet. Since I don't believe this quote to be true, the question must be asked; how do I propose we win back our lost time? As far as I'm concerned, it is in this realm of free colouring pages that save the day. So, what is it that makes fairy coloring such a worthwhile pursuit? This is my opinion, obviously, but here goes. When a child, or an adult faces a crisp white coloring page it is the beginning of an adventure. It gives a little feeling of elation and wonder. It might give you a little feeling of fear or confusion. Trust me, if you relax and realize that you are doing this "just for the fun of it". This cliche is true. Any art is really for the fun of it. For the exploration and adventure.

When I was a little girl I was truly mad about Barbie, Royal Doulton Figurines, fairy tales and Coloring. Years later... and I mean quite a few years later, I have rolled all of these interests into fairy coloring and drawing. Well, coloring a fairy is a very important step towards being a fairy artist. There are so many false premises about becoming an artist. So many people believe that if they were not born drawing, that art is something they cannot take part in. I believe coloring is an excellent way to begin the process of becoming a fairy artist. There are also varying degrees of being an artist. There are so many benefits to getting involved in art, beyond just the outcome. Tinkerbell coloring sheets describe the character as a common fairy who mends pots, sometimes is very helpful, and other times is very close and kind to Peter Pan. Children will discover her personality, who does not let her more feelings at a time, step by step and page by page. The joy of colouring these books will come also from the fact that along with Tinkerbell, your kids will find easy and enjoyable to draw in, Peter Pan and Wendy. The sheets are easy to download on your computer, be printed and handed on to your children, this way their little imaginative "mission" to begin. Coloring books also help teachers and parents to solidify children's knowledge. Children can be instructed in their colors, the alphabet, shapes, seasonal occasions, as well as spiritual education to be strengthened in church or at home.

Yes, it is a remarkable journey that our dear friend Pooh has managed to tread in his lifetime, but when you are traveling in the car for long distances it is perfectly understandable (albeit it extremely frustrating as well) that children get restless, agitated and then as a direct result of that, misbehave and react badly. Children have poor attention spans and extremely limited thresholds for boredom meaning that the parent should ensure that they take proactive steps to keep the little ones occupied. Whenever you are traveling long distances by car, it is little wonder that many of us want to keep the costs associated with the journey to an absolute bare minimum, after all given the significant amount of money that will have to be spent just to cover the cost of fuel how wouldn't want to keep the overheads as low as they can?
