2013 is nearly here and we are celebrating with these New Year coloring pages. Here at Kids Activities Blog we love coloring pages for kids. They are simple, printable, FREE entertainment and what mom doesn’t need that in a pinch?
New Year Coloring Pages
These three precious coloring pages celebrating the New Year 2013, display the inner workings of clocks along with a cute owl theme. I love these because my boys will like the mechanical aspect of a coloring page. I am sure they will end up explaining to me how the gears work together to make the clock hands move!

Coloring Pages for Kids
The funny thing about coloring pages is that my three boys would never sit down and color. If you handed them a kids’ menu and a handful of crayons at a restaurant, they would look blankly at the coloring activities and end up drawing for a bit then creating colorful missiles out of the crayons. They saw coloring pages as something static.
What we do now is different. We use coloring pages for kids as activity sheets and inspiration. Often coloring is the first step…or they even skip that step. Out comes the scissors, glue and craft paper. With a little imagination, a coloring page can turn into a 3D piece of art or decoration for a New Year’s themed airplane.
We also love to use coloring pages as painting backgrounds. Watercolors or finger paints on a large print can turn out beautifully even for the most unskilled painter.
Awhile back Kids Activities Blog explored a bunch of ways to use coloring sheets. These ideas are always in the back of my mind as I print off something new.
