{My Favourite Things} Colouring In

I’ve loved colouring in since I was a kid.

It brings me a certain sense of calm.

It’s not uncommon for the kids and I to print out colour-ins in the holidays or on wet weekends. We sit up to the table, snack on our favourite foods, colour and chat. Quite often we solve the worlds problems in an afternoon, all while blunting and sharpening our pencils.

The repetitive nature of a mandala only adds to that sense of peace and calm that colouring brings me… so I’m pretty sure that I’ll be printing these free mandala colour ins for myself (and quite possibly some for the bigger kids at school, to colour away some of their worries too).

    I love colouring too! Its definitely a great way to relax if you can find the time! I’ve recently listed my very first colouring-in cards created from children’s artwork and will be uploading some free printable in the future too. Btw, thanks for the blogging planners, I am looking forward to an organised future for my new blog!

    I sooo love colouring in! We should all do more of it, AND with the kids. Such a beautiful family time, thanks so much for sharing 🙂

      The kids love it when we do get to do it, Julie. They both have their special requests (which have changed as they’ve gotten older – no more Bob the Builder thankfully!!)
      Now it’s more dragons and more dragons, which I don’t mind either.
      Wouldn’t it be great to organize a big colouring-in weekend (or am I slightly mad?!)
