Color My Family

Our grandchildren love to color. A few years ago, I made Color My Family coloring books for the girls. The little man was not interested in structured coloring at that time. Now, at four, he does it all the time and not always in the proper place.

I started to print a Color My Family book for him, and then I realized they have grown so much they needed new line art to color.

I have been sneaking in family images amongst the other duties of the week. I hope to have it done soon. It is pure bliss to watch their faces when they realize they know the people in the coloring book. Try it sometime for a little one in your life.

  1. I like it! By the way; I made my English vocabulary richer some time ago. I had to analyze and interpret your sentence: “Sneaking bliss on the nausayer’s watch” 🙂 I like it as well.


      • I hadn’t thought of a project like that, but at Christmas time, I had each of my grandchildren pose with a medium sized watercolor block. They held it out or up or in front of them or whatever. My thought was to superimpose something onto the white square. I haven’t done anything with it yet. Not sure what to do with it. I still like the idea. I’d forgotten about it until I saw your art for the coloring book.


  2. I LOVE this idea! I don’t have children of my own (well, a stepdaughter, but she’s heading off to college), but I do have a niece and two nephews. They live halfway across the country, so this would be a great way to “bond” even though I don’t get to see them very often.


  3. this is a pretty cool idea! We made paper dolls for our Princesses who live far away. The Mom Person took pictures of everybody and printed them on heavy cardstock. Even me! Those girls played with them a lot.


Let me know what you think!
