Color Me Happy!

If you are new to The Daily Digi you might not know that we take a day off each week from posting about digital scrapbooking. We like to share some of our favorite finds and ideas that aren’t necessarily related to digi scrapping. It’s nice to have a little break each Sunday to get our minds refreshed and our creativity flowing again.

I (Katie) remember the thrill of getting a new coloring book. I didn’t do a lot of coloring as a kid, but I bet I would have if Crayola.com had been around back then! Nowadays, kids don’t have to wait until a special trip to the store to have new coloring pages, they can be printed anytime right off the internet! While there are a lot of free coloring page sites out there, the Crayola site has always been my favorite. They have high quality coloring pages, printable games, craft projects, and even plenty of educational materials for teachers and students.

Even if you don’t have kids at home, you might enjoy this site to print off fun activities to do with grandchildren. My daughter likes to print out coloring sheets to take with her on babysitting jobs. Even though my kids are teenagers, I regularly use this site to print off bingo games and fun educational supplements for our homeschool program.

You will need to register to use the site. It’s free and very easy to do. Here are some of my favorite finds:

There are more than 1000 free coloring pages!

Hundreds of craft ideas for any occasion

I’m suddenly in the mood to pull out a box of crayons and have some fun of my own! One of my very favorite things in life is a brand new box of Crayola crayons!
