As a family I like for us to have as many opportunities as we can to be creative. However having run out of rocks to paint I was rather pleased when the colouring posters I was sent to review arrived from Posterlounge. It meant the boys had something to keep them amused during the half term holidays.
The colouring posters are a fantastic new product available to buy from Posterlounge. My boys were excited to see the lovely posters. They are such good quality so after your child has completed their picture they can proudly display it on their wall. Furthermore they are fairly priced too. The colouring posters start from £4.95 so quite an inexpensive way to keep your children occupied. Each picture had lots of details to colour in.
I was impressed with the choice on offer. Whatever your child’s interests their will be an appealing poster to colour in. For example animals, flowers, vehicles, birds. Basically whatever sparks their fancy. As you can see below my youngest had the proud lion colouring poster.
Whilst my eldest had “Be Happy” wording with lots of interesting characters and food and drink surrounding it. I picked out a unicorn poster for my friends daughter. I am sure the intricate detail will keep her entertained for ages!
My order arrived promptly and was safely packaged.
There are many benefits to colouring because of this I think Posterlounge have done the right thing adding colouring posters to their site. The action of colouring in, holding pens and pencils helps develop children’s motor skills. Strengthening the muscles in their fingers and hands which improves their writing.
For my boys I am glad they had a proper break from computer games. Colouring posters was a pleasant structured activity to keep them out of mischief! They both calming started completing their pictures (well until they wanted the same colour anyway!!!).
I think I prefer colouring posters to colouring books especially as they are easier to frame afterwards and enjoy for a long time to come.
Posterlounge posters allow my boys a means of self-expression by choosing the colours they want to use for each section. It is thought that expressing ourselves is meant to reduce stress levels. My eldest child has a lot of going on at the moment. He starts secondary school after the summer holidays so its good for him to focus on an activity which will help him relax.
