As adults we tend to take a lot of what we know for granted. We were so young when we learned how to cut with scissors, place small items into a jar or even hold a pencil that we don’t ever remember not knowing how to do those things. No baby is innately born with the knowledge of how to do these things and instead it is something each of us is taught. As with any skill the more you practice the better you get. Athletes know this all too well. Michael Phelps and Apolo Anton Ohno didn’t just jump in the pool or skate around a rink once and win all of those Olympic medals. Heck no, they practiced every day for many hours each day. And be sure, for children practicing ad developing motor kills is as important, as preparing for Olympic games. But unlike athlets, they need their ‘excercises’ to be fun and enjoyabe. And what can grab their attention and keep engaged than favourite characters, such as Mickey and Minnie Mouse and their friends or other Disney characters.

Having coloring books in the house is great, but if your kids are like mine, yesterday’s favorite character is often replaced by the newest thing on the market. If I bought a new coloring book every time their favorites changed, I’d have a stack of coloring books with only 2 or 3 pages colored, plus it would cost me a fortune.
