    Coloring and Doodle Mini Book Tutorial by Crescendoh

    Posted by  ·  July 24, 2013

    Hello again. 🙂 I’m Jenny from
    and I’m super excited to return this year to participate in Skip To My Lou’s Craft Camp 2013! Here’s a fun project that your kids will love:

    The Color and Doodle Mini Book

    You can have them help you make it with you or you can make it yourself and present it to them as you embark on a road trip or you can send it to them as part of a creative summer camp care package! Here’s how:

    1. Gather about 10 shipping tags, a small book ring, and a fine-point black marker.

    2. Use the black marker to make pages on the tags with fun, encouraging, and simple prompts for coloring and doodling.

    3. Doodle a cover for the book with the marker and then add color to it with a bit of acrylic paint and small paintbrush. (Or you can use colored pencils or colored markers.)

    4. Add additional blank tags to the book with one tag that explains how to fill the blank pages. Gather all the tags and put them in a book ring.

    5. When you present the final coloring book to the recipient, consider presenting it with a set of paints and brushes or colored pencils or markers so the recipient can dig right in without having to wait.

    You can add lots of pages to this book … perhaps challenging yourself or the recipient to add a page a day or one every week.

    Happy summer. Happy crafting. 🙂

      Muy fácil y bello proyecto. Se podría utilizar para enseñar (tutorial ) de algo personal que sea relevante para un chamo y que con la tag le estamos recordando: Arregla tu cuarto ! Cepíllate los dientes.
