Let’s Get Coloring!

Happy Easter Everyone!
Inspired by egg painting, I’ve put together a list of coloring resources. My son was really into coloring last year and we must have printed out a few hundred different trains and dinosaurs to color. Besides being good for fine motor skills, they say it’s therapeutic right? Here is a list of sites where you can access coloring pages for your kids or yourself:

Illustrator Elise Gravel has a whole slew of wonderful free printable on her website, including a coloring page to “draw funny viruses” and one where the child should draw the “cure they came up with: http://elisegravel.com/en/livres/free-printables/…

Thousands of searchable and downloadable images to print and color at home: http://www.supercoloring.com/sections/coloring-pages
They also have some dot-to-dot and drawing tutorials and puzzle games

Aardman
At first I thought this was also a free download, but I love Aardman, so I would probably buy it. You can order the Aardman Animation Coloring Book here (13€)

We don’t use an app for coloring so I wouldn’t know what to recommend, but you can check out this article on the “top ten” kids coloring apps of 2020 if you don’t have a printer at home: https://www.lifewire.com/best-kid-coloring-apps-4174282

Also—coloring beyond the lines….there are limited spaces, and it starts next week, so I’d like to recommend:

Little art lab’s Family Journaling online classes for ages 6+. Wednesday April 15th 16:00-18:00 (CET) or Saturday April 18th 10:30-12:30 CET, 50€ + VAT for a family of up to 4. For more info: https://www.thelittleartlab.com/…/art-creative-journaling-f…
