It’s no secret that children love candy. Candy has everything a child could want: bright colors, lots of variety, and of course, sugar. That last thing is exactly why parents limit their children’s candy consumption. While a little sugar here and there is fine, too much of it has consequences.

Room for Imagination with Candy Coloring Pages
Children can still have fun with all the bright colors and variety. The difference is that they won’t be too full for their veggies once they’re done coloring. And coloring pages won’t have any impact on your child’s next dentist appointment, other than making the waiting room less boring if you print out a few pages and grab some crayons before you leave the house.
Children love novelty. Candy has plenty to offer. Flavors include chocolate candies, sour candies, and many others. And then there’s the variety of shapes, sizes, types, and colors.
That variety is great, because when it comes to coloring pages, your child can have all the novelty they crave. While the candy itself can provide plenty of variety, you can get even more variety when you put those shapes on a coloring page. For example, this page simply shows different candies on a plain background. This candy coloring page includes a monkey in a party hat.
A lot of candy coloring pages have holiday and seasonal themes, too. Some coloring sheets may feature a pumpkin or some candy corn for Halloween fun. And for Valentine’s Day, a fun preschool craft can include coloring candy hearts. There’s almost no limit to your coloring page options. Add your child’s imagination into the mix, and you can stretch those limits even further.
Sometimes, Simple is Best
With coloring pages, candy leaves a lot of room for white space. Candy doesn’t need anything complicated, just a circle here, a swirl there, and the occasional lollipop stick. For young children, this is great. It leaves a lot of room for them to fill in the space. They can make big, bold swipes with a crayon or marker, using as many colors as they want to use. And when you’re a preschooler, that’s the best part of coloring.
It also leaves a lot of room for your child’s imagination to run wild. As they color some sweet treats on a printable worksheet, no idea is too imaginative.
Entertainment or a Learning Experience? Why Not Both?
You may already know why coloring is good for children. Candy, with its simple but varied shapes, provides extra learning opportunities. Is your preschooler learning about squares, circles, and triangles? You can find candy coloring pages with all of those shapes. Why not point out the different shapes while your child colors? The act of coloring can help cement those shapes in your child’s mind, making the concepts more real.
The same concept applies to color recognition. Visuals can make a big difference in kindergarten and preschool learning. In fact, your kid’s teachers probably use the occasional free coloring page in their lessons. There’s no reason why some cotton candy shouldn’t help your child recognize their colors.
Of course, sometimes children need to do things just for fun. It’s a normal and vital part of childhood. Just like adults, little ones need to let off some steam every once in a while, so not everything needs to be a lesson. The same goes for older kids who may want something simple and fun to do. Candy coloring pages provide a simple option for them to express their creativity in a fun way. And if they happen to improve their motor skills in the process? Well, then everybody wins.
