Colordad.com by Swee is a wonderful trove of printable colouring pages for preschoolers. It features stuff he’s drawn for his own children and he’s allowed everyone to download them for free!

Toothpaste Girl captures his daughter when she was little.

The images are fun, whimsical and wholesome. You might break out in a smile or even chuckle just looking at them.

For easy navigation, they are in three categories: People, Robots and Animals.

Use it to develop the creativity in your child. For example, you can use Animals tab and choose either land or water animals. Create a farm scene, zoo story or ocean adventure with them. Colour the animals and cut them out. For an ocean adventure, place a large piece of blue felt on the floor. Scatter the various types of sea creates from a height (stand on a stool if it helps). Allow them to fall randomly. Come up with a story based on where they land.

Have your mobile phone ready to capture the experience. Video the creative process! It’ll be an experience to treasure.
