Fifty outline pictures feature favorite animals on 27.94 cm x 35.56 cm premium white bond paper, bound into an oversize drawing pad. Your child will love coloring in each page with crayons, markers, paints or pencils to mimic the animals' natural coloring - or create wild new creatures! The pages tear out cleanly to allow more than one child to color simultaneously and make proud display easy. Pediatricians say solo, exploratory play has a role in fostering creativity. Coloring reduces stress and improves concentration and hand-eye coordination. This coloring pad makes a great gift for 3-year-olds, 5-year-olds, 6-year-olds, and up. Add the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel to round out the creative play experience and give kids another engaging option for screen-free fun. For more than 30 years, Melissa & Doug has created beautifully-designed imagination- and creativity-sparking products that NBC News called “the gold standard in early childhood play.” We design every toy to the highest-quality standards, and to nurture minds and hearts.
