8 April 2020

Because of the coronavirus, many families have to stay indoors (➜ Read also: 7 tips for spending time at home). Actually it’s child's play – but only if you have no children. Keeping kids busy is a challenge. Because without kindergarten or school, they want to be kept entertained around the clock at full throttle.

When the little ones or even the grown-ups get bored, pictures to color in or papercrafts are the ideal way to pull the handbrake at home. Off the throttle and on to pencils, scissors and glue. We’ve compiled our BMW models as car coloring sheets and papercrafts for you to download, for children and adults.

We know there are more important things than talking about cars and mobility right now. For BMW, as a globally active brand, the health of our customers, fans and employees has top priority. We will act accordingly, with confidence and solidarity. We are still here to do what we do best: Bring you Joy, and brighten your day, even in these times. We will all get through this, together. Stay safe.

The benefits of painting

In the painting templates, the empty areas are painted with color according to the numbers. Sounds relaxing? It is! We’ll tell you what kinds of great side effects you and your children will experience after you've finished coloring a BMW car drawing.
1.

Decreasing stress

Many people process their conflicts and worries by being creative, including children. When you and your kids are finished with the car drawings, the anxiety centre of your brain will be completely relaxed and you will be in a meditative and relaxed state of mind.

2.

The release of endorphins

For children, drawing a car is a small challenge. Car coloring pictures, on the other hand, are created without much creative effort. The rule here is: don’t look for the next Picasso. The joy of coloring is the main point.

3.

Strengthening motor skills

Both hemispheres of the brain are used when you’re coloring. While logic helps parents and children to stay within the lines of the painting outlines, the choice of colors generates a creative thought process.

4.

It helps you sleep

Using pens and paint can improve your sleep? If we’d known that earlier, we would have given our children a whole garage full of BMW models to color in, many parents might now be thinking. Coloring for kids instead of TV. Picture painting is a relaxing and electronics-free ritual before going to bed, which does not negatively influence the melatonin level responsible for sleep disorders. By the way, it is also an ideal sleep ritual for adults.

Let’s get crafty!

Paint the picture, cut it with scissors, fold along the line and glue together. Done!
