Can colouring aid a child’s development?
While being a lot of fun, colouring is well-known to improve children’s development in different ways. For example, while colouring, young learners are developing their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. This is especially the case when they’re doing this at a young age as they’re learning the methods of holding pens and pencils and colouring within the lines.
Colouring activities can also be highly effective in teaching children topical information. As it’s fun, children become encouraged to learn more about the topic at hand as they’re in a relaxed environment. We recommend using topical colouring sheets whenever you get the chance to!
What is an albatross?
An albatross is a very large seabird that can generally be found in the North Pacific and Southern Oceans. They are one of the largest known birds and have a huge wingspan – this can vary up to 12 ft!
One of the most interesting facts about this bird is that they can travel hundreds of miles over the oceans each day by expelling minimal energy. This is because they have special tendons that lock their wings when extended, so they can soar through the air rather than flapping their wings. How cool is that?

House mice (Mus musculus L.) were introduced to sub-Antarctic Marion Island more than two centuries ago, and have been the only introduced mammal on the island since 1991 when feral cats were eradicated. The first mouse-injured wandering albatross (Diomedea exulans L.) chick was found in 2003 and since then attacks have continued at a low level affecting <1% of the population. In 2009, the first ‘scalpings’ were detected; sooty albatross (Phoebetria fusca Hilsenberg) fledglings were found with raw wounds on the nape. In 2015, mice attacked large chicks of all three albatross species that fledge in autumn: grey-headed (Thalassarche chrysostoma Forster) (at least 102 wounded chicks; 4.6% of fledglings), sooty (n=45, 4.3%) and light-mantled albatross (P. palpebrata Forster) (n=1, 4%). Filming at night confirmed that mice were responsible for wounds. Attacks started independently in small pockets all around the island’s 70 km coastline, separated by distances hundreds of times greater than mouse home ranges. The widespread nature of mouse attacks in 2015 on large, well-feathered chicks is alarming and highlights not only Marion Island as a priority island for mouse eradication but also that mice alone may significantly affect threatened seabird species.
