Christopher Milne had named his toy bear after Winnie, a Canadian black bear he often saw at London Zoo, and “Pooh”, a swan they had met while on holiday. The bear cub was purchased from a hunter for $20 by Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn in White River, Ontario, Canada, while en route to England during the First World War. He named the bear “Winnie” after his adopted hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba. “Winnie” was surreptitiously brought to England with her owner, and gained unofficial recognition as The Fort Garry Horse regimental mascot. Colebourn left Winnie at the London Zoo while he and his unit were in France; after the war she was officially donated to the zoo, as she had become a much-loved attraction there. Pooh the swan appears as a character in its own right in When We Were Very Young.
Let's be honest. The Internet is quite possibly one of the best and worst inventions to come around in a long long time. With it, you get the good and inevitably, you get the bad. It can help make you more productive in life and it can also cause you to be highly inefficient. Now, before we get off on a rant here I should clarify, this article is actually going to be about free colouring pages. How you may ask? Well, the way I see it, free colouring pages epitomize how the internet can help parents. And although it may sound like a stretch, I'll attempt to connect the proverbial dots that add up to my colouring pages conviction.
Free coloring pages are found all over the internet. They are offered for all of the kid's favorite characters too including Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Dora the Explorer and more. You will also find great themes such as robots, trucks and equipment, princesses, animals, and culture.
Children who use coloring pages will also better their ability to concentrate. Being able to concentrate is an important skill for children to have, and the earlier they start developing it, the better. Focusing on a drawing on a page does much for children. Children learn to be patient as they take their time to apply colors to the images in the coloring book. Problems with hyperactivity and attention deficit disorders, as well as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, also known as ADHD, are diminished, psychologists believe, in children who devote a good portion of their time to coloring pages.Finally, children who are involved in coloring pages will most likely experience fewer psychological problems when they are young. The reason for this is that the minds of children, who are able to enjoy using their imaginations to create exciting worlds filled with fantasy and adventure, are strong and flexible. This coloring creativity aids them in steering clear of problems like childhood depression.
Now, everyone is always concerned about time, namely, having too little time. Too many things take up too much time. Errands take time, laundry takes time, meals take time. Add a child or two into the mix and time is of even greater importance. As Benjamin Franklin said, "Lost time is never found again." However, I would have to disagree with Mr. Franklin because of one crucial reason; Benjamin Franklin did not have the Internet. Since I don't believe this quote to be true, the question must be asked; how do I propose we win back our lost time? As far as I'm concerned, it is in this realm of free colouring pages that save the day.
