Slumber Party Coloring Pages
Slumber party coloring pages are a fun little item to give out to your guests after they leave your party as a souvenir (or goodie bag) and it is something which they will take with them to remind him or her of your special party. I have seen in the past some very cute things provided by kids as party favors like a teddy bear with a red and white face and a toothbrush for all the children to use. These are perfect for a slumber party because you can give them to everyone without worrying about whether they have used them or not. These are cute and practical items that are sure to please any child. There is no question that these are perfect gifts for kids of any age.
These coloring sheets come in many different sizes. You can have single sheets, double ones, or even a sheet for every child for each guest to color in. The kids are all in a good mood and enjoy a good coloring session so much that they will likely keep one or two around for a rainy day. These are not hard or expensive to buy. Your local drugstore will be happy to sell you a box of these.
Another way to make your slumber party a hit among the youngsters is to provide each guest with a color pencil. They can color in their own designs, just as long as you permit them to do so freely. This keeps the children in a good mood and there is not excess competition among them which might otherwise result in squabbles. If you would like to know what color pencil to purchase, simply ask the little ones what they want to draw. Most kids will be happy to oblige and if you have any questions about the different types of pencils available, ask the children to explain their choices to you.
Once you have decided on the coloring supplies, you need to get down to the nitty gritty of the slumber party planning. The good news is that once you know what colors you intend to use, most of these are fairly simple to obtain and relatively inexpensive. The key is getting everyone involved in the process. Give the children a chance to feel creative and imaginative and at the same time be excited about the opportunity to express themselves creatively through art.
To start with, let each child choose a favorite picture from the book that you are going to use as the background for the slumber page. You might even want to use one of the more adorable pictures from the book as the cover for the coloring page. After you find a suitable picture to use, you can always frame it and let it hang on the wall or even place it as a permanent marker on the wall. Make sure that you let all the children know where the marker is located.
After you have painted the page with the color part of the book, let each child choose a color from the color part of the color page and begin to color. When a child has finished coloring, they should give you time to review their work and ask for their feedback. If they are happy with the way that their colors look, you can offer them a prize based on their performance. For instance, if the child colored the entire page, you could offer them a sticker or temporary tattoo. As the child grows, you can change their tattoo or give them a new one once they've shown you their artistic prowess.
When the slumber party is over, you will want to carefully dry the drawing and let it be airy so that the ink will easily come out. Before the next slumber party, you can start playing with the coloring book again. This time you will not be using the original book as your coloring guide. Instead, hand write the directions on the coloring pages using crayons or markers of different colors so that each guest can color in their own little sketch.
It's always a good time to bring back old coloring books from the slumber party days and use them for your coloring sessions. You may also wish to consider starting your own collection of coloring books for your child's use. There are a variety of colorful kids coloring books available right now and you can keep these around as a special treat for your child. Whether you give the coloring books away as a giveaway for a future slumber party or store them for future use, you will find that these are a fun way to encourage the kids to color and draw for themselves.
