Garage Sale Colouring Printable: Take a Break and Colour Together!

Jun 16, 2016

Colouring reduces stress for both kids and adults, and it also helps kids learn about colours as they develop their fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and helps them prepare for writing. Why not take a moment and try some colouring together? We developed some exclusive family colouring sheets—there's lots of detailed stuff for adults and older kids to colour in, and lots of larger blank spots for kids who are still honing their motor skills. 

Put on some music, grab some lemonade and bust out the pencil crayons—it's time to colour!

Our first colouring sheet is all about the joys of the summer garage sale. Look for more coming soon!
