Some online coloring activities involve coloring drawings of animals, dinosaurs or pets at websites such as TheColor.com and Coloring.com. These sites are free to join, and kids color the drawings using an electronic color palette.
TheColor.com features various kinds of drawings that appeal to hobbyists, animal lovers, nature lovers, superhero buffs or car collectors. Drawings are organized into themes such as animals in a farm or jungle, animals in a safari, or silly animals. There are also birds, cats, dogs and insects; cars, airplanes and helicopters; and famous people, pop stars and historical figures.
After coloring, kids have the option to save their work, print it out or start over. Kids may also choose to print the drawing as is and physically color it with crayons or colored pencils. TheColor.com also displays the work of its users and the usernames of its top members. It also posts the day's most popular coloring pages.
At Coloring.com, users can choose from a variety of drawings such as the alphabet, animals, shapes and designs, holiday-themed drawings and the seasons. Users need to create a free account to use the site. Artists may also voluntarily send in their designs for other users to color.
