How To Use These Pages To Cut Down On Screen Time
If your intention is to cut down on screen time for your kids, these coloring pages can help. Let’s look at a few creative ways to use these pages to help your kids unplug each day.
Screen-Free Break- You will have greater success with screen-free time if your children already know when it is coming. This will require that you create a schedule of screen-free time each day and stick to it. Children do best when they know what to expect. In order for children to know what to expect, they need their parents and caregivers to stick to a routine they can count on.
Be Prepared- If you want to make sure screen breaks go smoothly, make sure you are prepared with screen-free activities to engage your children in. This is especially important for young children. They may struggle with finding activities on their own to do instead of hopping on a screen.
Stock Up On Supplies- Another important thing to keep in mind is to have good art supplies stocked up for coloring time. Kids will be more enthusiastic about coloring when they have fun supplies on hand.
Think Outside The Box- To really make this a fun activity, you might need to think outside the box. Just because these are coloring pages, doesn’t mean you are limited just to crayons. You may want to use markers or even paint to make these pages more interesting.
Take It Further- Beyond the coloring page, you can keep the screen-free creativity flowing with other types of activities as well. One great idea is to encourage your child to create an original story about One Direction once they have completed their coloring page.
This story can be written on the back of the coloring page to create a fun illustrated story.
Another fun activity might be to create a One Direction poster. Kids can cut out full-color images from magazines or print images from the internet to create a fun collage poster.
