Day 241: Coloring Book

Over the course of the last year or so, I have accumulated quite the collection of cute sea critter stamps. For today’s project, I decided to use several of those stamps to create a coloring book for kids:

I then stamped various sea critters from my collection onto white pieces of paper cut to the size of the interior pages and attached the white paper to the chipboard pages.

I punched holes into the pages so I could put them back into the book.

I probably don’t have much practical use for this since my kids are getting older, but for a mom with young kids, I think this could be a great thing to have. I know when my boys were small, they would sometimes want to join me while I was working on crafts. If I had something like this, I could have given it to them with crayons or colored pencils and they could work on a project right alongside me. Or, with the small size, this would be perfect to throw in a bag, again, along with crayons or colored pencils, so that you could give it to a child to help them pass the time if you are stuck waiting somewhere…like the doctor’s office or in a restaurant.
