According to Wikipedia: A coloring book (or colouring book) is a type of book containing line art for a reader to add color using crayons, colored pencils, marker pens, paint or other artistic media. Coloring books are generally used by children, though coloring books for adults are also available. They cover a wide range of subjects, from simple stories for children to intricate or abstract designs for adults. The golden age of coloring books is considered to be the 1960s.
I normally print out free coloring pages for my nephew – no problem right? Then I was asked to baby sit a few other little ones one evening. I passed out a coloring page to each of them along with a huge bucket of crayons. I was then off to watch an episode of Monk. After about three minutes the fight was on. I ran into the family room as if the house was on fire. The children were arguing over one particular coloring page. Normally this would have been another disaster. Imagine if I only had the traditional coloring book. This would have turned into a huge crying fest. Thanks to the Internet I zipped into the computer room and simply printed out several more of the same coloring pages and saved the day. I even made it back in time to see Monk work his magic and solve the case once again.

They enjoy coloring and you can find many downloadable coloring pages on the web that have images related to Holy Communion.
