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.
Have you ever sat back and really thought about how much fun you really do have when you are sitting down coloring with your kids? If you are like most adults you might simply shrug it off and not really pay that much attention to this; yet there quite a few adults that really embrace that creative side and decide to express it by drawing or painting as either a hobby or a profession. If you are one of the really creative people you are likely to take that next step and simply make your creative passions work for you. This is something that many people really never give that much thought to as kids; or maybe those kids that became well known artists always knew that they wanted to share their creativity with the world. It is kind of amazing when you really think about the fact that just sitting there coloring either by yourself or with your kids really can make a big difference in your life.
We have yet to discuss the benefit that your child will be learning about the different colors as they color their pages. And the more exposure your child has to coloring, the more they will learn about the typical colors of objects, and they will begin to choose specific colors for specific items, such as red apples, or green leaves. And, as they grow older, you will also begin to see that they will color animals the color that they truly are. This may seem obvious to somebody who has known their colors since they can remember, but you had to learn it at some point and this is a great way for your child to learn theirs.
How many times have you simply sat there with a box of crayons or coloring pencils and a coloring book or coloring pages and just enjoyed yourself for a little while? It really is not that surprising that there are as many adults that really love coloring as there are children that love this activity. Too many times adults sit there and hide the fact that they still like or love to color as much as their kids, or the kids in their lives, do. Think about this and answer this question if you possibly can; what is the matter with saying that you like to color on SpongeBob coloring pages?
Another question that is connected to this is this: what’s so wrong about looking for coloring pages of SpongeBob Squarepants for yourself?

How many times have you simply sat there and ”goofed off” coloring for about an hour when you had the free time to do this? If you have just sat there and really, really enjoyed just sitting there coloring for a little while you most certainly are not alone in this.
