Like many children, my daughter loves sloths. She loves watching an episode of Planet Earth II with a pygmy sloth swimming in the water. If you’ve never seen a swimming sloth, a short clip from the episode is available for free from the BBC YouTube channel:
According to my daughter’s DK book on sloths, sloth are much faster in water than on land. Their long arms make them good swimmers! I’m always amazed by the new things I learn from my daughter’s nature books.

How to print and use coloring pages for kids
Printing and using these coloring pages is pretty straightforward – print them off and hand them over to your child.
I recommend printing the coloring pages on 32 lb bright white paper. Remember those yellow, rough coloring pages in coloring books as a child? They’re not that fun to color on. This 32 lb paper is smooth and bright for vibrant colors and easy coloring.
The benefit for you is that the thicker paper doesn’t bleed through as quickly so markers are less likely to stain your table again.

My daughter’s favorite crayons are Honeysticks natural beeswax crayons. The colors palette is fairly limited, but the colors are rich and creamy.
