These Gingerbread Coloring Pages
This set contains six pages for children to color and interact with.
Some might view coloring pages as busy work or just play time but there are actually many benefits!
First of all, they offer a little break and stress relief for children.
Coloring pages also give students an opportunity to work on fine motor skills along with hand / eye coordination.
With these pages, your children might also work on patterns. For example, they can create a pattern for coloring the stripes on the letters in “run” or a pattern around the border of the pages.
You will want to provide your children with the right tools for completing these pages.
While crayons are fine, some children might enjoy other writing utensils.
Colored pencils can be a good options for students who are concerned about staying in the lines.
Fine tip markers are also a good option for children who want a brightly colored page.
Some children might enjoy using glitter accents (of course, this is only if you are ok with adding glitter to the mess.)
