My kids were thoroughly enchanted with Arthur, a book we read as part of the Memetales Readathon this week about a dog who is desperate to find a home. They thought it would be fun to have some book-themed coloring pages, so I used my new Wacom Bamboo Capture Tablet to create some simple animal coloring pages – follow the link to download these free coloring pages! We made pages for most of the animals that Arthur the dog tries to impersonate.
Emma colored the bottom row, Johnny’s are the five orange line drawing pieces, and Lily colored the remaining three. I love that they each found their own style! And, can you spot a couple of Johnny’s ducks in the bottom right corner? We laminated those, and the kids enjoy playing with them!
I love that my kids get so excited about coloring pictures mom drew!
Four-year-old Johnny put his own artistic slant on the drawings, and two-year-old Lily traced the letters as well as coloring the pictures:
I loved the details that six-year-old Emma put into coloring her fish:
Would your kids enjoy this? You can download the coloring pages for free here! I’d love to see what your kids do with them!
Disclosure: We receive copies of the books that I provide activities for as part of the MeMeTales Summer Readathon.
