Hi! My son is five-years old and Paint seems boring for him. I don't have time to draw something for him and I'm afraid to give him some pencils because he might hurt his eyes or paint the walls if I don't pay attention to him. So, do you know any a computer coloring game?

I have an Apple computer and all three of my kids have loved playing and creating on a program called Kid Pix.

In addition to computer programs, can you set up a small craft area for him? By 5, he should have the self dicipline to work with age appropriate materials for short periods of time without constant supervision. My youngest is 4 but has been around pencils, markers, oil pastels, blunt scissors, watercolors amd colored pencils from day one because her siblings are 3 and 5 years older than her. We keep everything on a small table in the family room so I'm always nearby but they don't need me right there. Each kid has a small art caddy with their materials and they are free to create at will.

Thanks, KC_94920 ! I continued my "research" on Google and I've found some sort of tool, Gm Coloring Book, I'm checking it right now. I'll try your tips too. Thanks
