Color Books Go Home!

The children were so excited--they got to take their color books home today. After more than two months of working on them, this is a big day for them. Each day after we would finish a page they would always ask if they could,"take it home and show their mom?" Sorry Dad, they want to show mom first.

I will tell you every year I struggle with a cover. This year I gave them a piece of paper that said, "My Color Book." I had different color watercolors out and I let the children watercolor them however they wanted. Some colored the whole paper, some just a small area. After they were dry, I stapled them together and off they want.

I hope everyone enjoyed them!

I think they look beautiful! My daughter's preschool hasn't done anything like this...we may have to make one on our own.

I love the color book! Anna had a good time showing Grandma and Grandpa. Having it all in one book is great - better than bringing home one piece at a time.
