How to use the Groundhog Day Color Page Name Crafts
Coloring pages are all the rage lately, especially with kids. Adults also love it! Why is it important for us to train our kids to learn to color in early on in age?
Firstly, incorporating coloring into play helps build the child’s curiosity about their surroundings and their imagination. Does your child try to start coloring then give up?
Do they scribble on the page and not attempt to color inside the lines, use different colors for different pieces etc?
Then they need to be taught how to color in correctly. Some tips you could use is to show them where to color in.
Use an example piece and show them how you are coloring each piece on the page with a different color.
It’s not as simple as just handing out the pages and hoping for the best. Kids need to be taught this skill too.
The benefits they get from learning how to color in correctly is patience, good pencil grip, fine motor skills and coordination and writing skills. It is very much worth the effort!
The first activity pack is all about coloring the Groundhog worksheets, have your kids learnt about groundhogs?
Have them watch this YouTube video on facts about Groundhogs before or while you complete these activities:
