No creature encompasses magic and imaginative storytelling quite like unicorns. If your child loves unicorns, and you’re looking for fun unicorn-themed activities aside from dress-up and playtime, how about tossing unicorn coloring pages into the mix? This brain-boosting activity gently prompts children’s imagination to take charge while simultaneously exercising their fine motor skills.
Another reason coloring is such a great tool is that it can be both a bonding activity—whether your child is spending time with you, another relative, or their friend—and a way to encourage independent play. In case of the first scenario, your kid will also learn the importance of sharing and communicating. A solo art project, however, will give your kid the opportunity to practice self-expression with the help of their favorite magical, horned animal.
