New York, NY, March 20, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- In response to overwhelming demand for free or low-cost activities to entertain kids, Grandparents.com has created more than a hundred new printable pages featuring classic and iconic illustrations to color in, free of charge.
Newly added categories include Animals (horse, dog, rabbit, lion, shark), Transportation (trucks, cars, trains), Princess (castle, horse and carriage, dancing with prince), Seasons, Holidays (Easter, July 4th, Christmas, etc.) and more, including every letter of the alphabet to spell out a child's name.
In an economic climate where many grandparents can't afford to spoil their grandkids, simple, free activities like coloring are gaining popularity. "Just play with the kids instead of shopping for them," says Georgia Witkin, Ph.D., assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. "Or read to them, teach them something they could never learn from anyone else, like the tap dance you learned at age 6. Grandparents are valued and loved even if they don't bring gifts."
