Over the years, I have done a wide range of art and craft activities in schools and at other events. Sometimes I give the children a range of activities to choose from, and when I do, it’s always interesting to see how many children like nothing more than a spot of colouring in…
6: Have some fun with colouring in!
So today, I’m sharing a colouring sheet based on my most recent book, Milly’s Marvellous Mistakes.
Why not have a go? Don’t forget to help Milly finish her picture! What is she painting? A boat? A bat? A balloon? There is a printable version of the colouring sheet here
Don’t forget, I’d love to see the work you produce! You can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, post it on my Peta Rainford’s Facebook page @dogpigeon, or Tweet me @PetaRainford
You might also like to try this extra challenge:
- Have a think about where Milly is doing her painting, and include some details to show this. For example, if she’s in her bedroom, there might be toys on the floor; if she’s at school, how would you show this? But perhaps she’s doing her painting somewhere much more exciting: in Buckingham Palace, or on a space ship! You decide!
