Coloring Pages and On-Line Coloring
The skill associated with coloring and its contribution to development often go unnoticed by parents. However, coloring actually requires the utilization of an extensive skills set, including the following: extensive use of fine motor skills for detailed work, ability to maneuver a mouse with a high level of precision, ability to recognize colors and shapes, logical reasoning necessary for attributing logical color schemes to appropriate places (i.e., red lips instead of green ones, green grass instead of purple).

Computer coloring increases the level of difficulty associated with coloring. Because online coloring requires a higher level of mouse control, this activity helps develop finer motor skills.
