Think about it this way; would you rather spend about an hours looking over and printing out SpongeBob coloring pages, or would you prefer to drive all over the place looking for a SpongeBob coloring book? The answer to this really depends upon whether the website, or websites, you are visiting have the coloring pages of SpongeBob Squarepants that you really want. Chances are that the website/websites that you decide to look on will have the images that you are looking for; yet you might not always find what you are looking for out there. Do you realize that you can have as much fun looking for the SpongeBob coloring pages that you want as you will when you sit down to actually color those pages?
Often at times, the trip starts at the airport with excited and maybe nervous children preparing for what may be their first time on an airplane. Thankfully, most airlines will allow pre-boarding for families with young children to avoid the crush of the regular boarding call. Arriving at the airport in plenty of time to familiarize your children with the airport processes will help and will allow also allow them some time to explore the airport. Regardless of if you are traveling by air or by car, always remember to pack snacks, drinks, books and other attention holders to avoid the dreaded, "Im bored" complaints. An extra change of clothes also helps in the event of any travel related illnesses.
So why the fascination, and how can they help you? In the most basic sense, the act of applying colored media to intricate line drawings is a benefit to relaxation and stress reduction. You are able to put the outside world aside for the moment and focus on the art of coloring singularly. Studies have shows that anxiety levels dropped in adults that colored. They did note that simple doodling had no affect on anxiety. The focus on coloring and switching off the brain allows that blocking of anxiety in the moment. Coloring does not have a need for complicated thought processes and like listening to calming music, you are able to get within yourself, isolated from external anxiety, commotion, and distractions.
