It's May, which means baseball season is in full swing. This baseball coloring page from Melanie Hope Greenberg will keep your Little Leaguer occupied during big brother or big sister's game. The coloring page features cheering fans as a baseball player hits a run. Will she hit fly out of the park? Ask your little artist to tell you a story about the game play!

My child hasn't been as interested in coloring pages as he has in the past, but when I printed out this one featuring his favorite sport, he couldn't resist.
As you can see, he does not feel constrained by reality, and neither should your child! No child needs to stay within the lines or use realistic color choices. The orange team plays the green team. And, as green is his favorite color, I imagine this play will end up being a home run.
