Coloring is a popular leisure activity enjoyed by children of all ages - little kids have no problem finding pictures to color, or they draw their own. The most difficult aspect about coloring as an adult (or teenager) is how to find interesting coloring pictures. There are hundreds of thousands of coloring pictures available for children - in printed coloring books, on CD-ROM and on the Internet as free printables to download and print, or to color using the computer.
The online community abounds with pictures for kids to color, ranging from simple alphabet coloring pages and shapes to every favorite cartoon, collectible and super hero character that's popular now, or was in the recent past.
