Don’t you hate having to throw away coloring books because your child has colored on all the pages? If so, you’re not alone. Most parents hate having to get rid of coloring book after coloring book because all of that waste adds up over time. Rather than going through this wasteful process though, you could save the environment and your money by printing your own reusable coloring pages. If you have some loose paper, a printer, and access to a laminator, you may never have to throw away a coloring page again. Here is a look at how easy it is to make your own reusable pages.
You can find creative coloring pages online to print off. Take a look at some of the options you have based on your kid’s favorite cartoon characters or animals. Once you have everything printed that your kids would want to color, take them to an office supply store to have them laminated. Then your children will be able to color the pages with markers that you can easily wipe off. The process will only cost you a few bucks in office equipment, and it will give you a chance to provide your child with hours of entertainment.
Using the Pages
Have your kids color on the pages with dry erase markers that you can easily wipe off. You will need to be careful about where they do this to avoid getting marker all over your furniture. You can also have the children use transparency markers like teachers use on overhead projectors. Those are easy to clean off with a special cleaning solution, so your kids will be able to color the same pages time and time again.
If you’re looking for a gift that keeps on giving, this could definitely be the one. You just have to take the time to get the pages laminated, and the rest will work out from there. Find some images online that your kids would love to color, and then use your toner cartridges to make the images come to life. The kids will take care of the rest.
