Twisty Noodle has an extensive collection printables designed to help kids learn about objects and improve handwriting. The illustrations are very well done. From the site:
"Twisty Noodle has thousands of free coloring pages and handwriting practice worksheets that you can customize and print. We work with top illustrators, artists, and licensed image libraries to offer the most unique selection of coloring pages and handwriting practice worksheets on the internet."
There are two main categories, Worksheets and Coloring Pages. Worksheets have images with ruled lines for writing and coloring pages have large images to color with identifying text. There's a bunch of material for use - in the worksheet category you'll find these topics:
- Boy Stuff
- Girly Things
- Letters & Numbers
Within the topics, there are subtopics; for example, under animals you'd find this list:
- Aquatic Life
- Bugs and Insects
- Cats, Lions, and Tigers
- Frogs and Toads
- Koala Bears
- Monkeys and Apes
- Zoo Book
Adults who have little ones that ask them to draw something will find this site useful for images that can be drawn or traced. I often asked my Mom to "draw something for me to color" as I was growing up. She always obliged (she's a good artist) but I suspect that many times it was to keep me from decorating the walls with crayons as much as anything else.
