Dogs are the best
Dogs are known as mans best friend for a reason. They’re friendly, kind, affectionate and also adorable. They’re descendant from wolves and were actually the first animals domesticated by humans to be used for agricultural purposes. Humans have long had a fondness for dogs that has just never seemed to fade despite our ever changing world and its easy to see why. They are so gentle despite their sometimes large and scary demeanour and they’re a cuddly pet you can snuggle up to.
Our dog themed coloring printables are such a good way to creatively express your love for this animal dubbed as man’s best friend. Kids love getting stuck in with colouring and especially when its themed around something they are passionate about and love. They are sure to have an exciting afternoon with these printables and with five different breeds to choose from they can take their pick on which breed is their favourite. It’s also a great way to educate them about dogs, teaching them all about different breeds and their anatomy. So not only is it fun and creative, but its also educational.
Colouring is good for the mind
Colouring is absolutely amazing for your mental heath as it encourages you to take all the stress from your day and abandon it in favour of pencils and paper. It’s mindful and it gets you to focus on the task at hand rather than worrying about the anxieties and stresses of your day. In that way it’s great for children as well, especially those who have a tendency to worry a lot. They can simply relax and focus on colouring in a picture of their favourite dog. Too often, these days, we find that children are overly stressed out by difficult homework tasks, or, as they will naturally experience, arguments with friends. But coloring is a great way to combat this anxiety, encouraging them to leave behind their anxieties and focus on something they enjoy.
Other activities as well
While colouring is fun, you can also find many other dog themes activities within this pack. There are games, word searches and fun labelling activities to educate kids about the anatomy of dogs which teaches them to label the different parts of a dog. Kids love taking part in activities that are themed with something that they love and most kids absolutely adore dogs. So what better way to fill an afternoon than by providing kids with an activity that they will enjoy? Encourage their passions even if that means dogs galore!
