what magic coloring for my child?


Both fun and educational, magic coloring is a service for overwhelmed parents while intelligently entertaining children. We sorted it out so that you find the ones that best suit the needs and needs of your little ones, read on!

In these very special times of confinement and educational continuity, we are more than ever looking for activities that will not only entertain our children for more than 5 minutes, but will also bring them – or at least consolidate – certain knowledge. This is where magical coloring comes in, which will never have deserved their name as much as it will allow you to occupy your offspring intelligently while you manage telework, household chores or other children's homework. And yes it is possible!
And of course you can continue to use these magic coloring pages after this quarantine is over, for example to reduce your children's daily screen time and distract them during weekends and holidays.

How does magic coloring work?

Rest assured, the principle of magic coloring is obviously very simple: the drawing is divided into different boxes, in each of which there is for example a letter that your child will have to recognize or a calculation operation that he will have to perform. As an answer, each box should be colored the right way following a color code, for example yellow for the letter “B” or pink for an addition with a result of 10.
These drawings will take multiple forms: a princess, a pirate, a ladybug, a rainbow… All childish themes that can please your little one, like a traditional coloring. You can also select them according to certain key moments of the year with, for example, magical Christmas, Halloween, Easter coloring pages or to celebrate the arrival of winter or spring.
Most of these magic coloring pages can be printed for free but some can also be done online, like some from the software site Educatif.fr.
