I have a quick and simple St. Patrick's Day Coloring book to share that I made for the grands. They are 2,4 5 and 6 years old and they LOVE to get mail so I send them cards for every holiday.
First I made 4 covers out of green card measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". I folded them in half and then scored a line 1/2" in from the fold on the front so the cover will fold back easily when the kids open it to color the pages. (they need it to be opened flat right?!)
I printed some free digi images for the coloring pages. The digi images are from Claire Brennan and you'll find them here. She has individual digi images as well as colored papers. She also has a PDF file that has the 4 images that print on one 8 1/2" x 11" paper. I printed this file onto regular computer paper. Then I just cut the pages into 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" sections and used one of each of the 4 images in each book.
I placed the image sheets into the folded cover and stapled the edge.
I decorated the cover with some St Patrick's Day stamps from My Sentiments Exactly. I added a sparkly foam shamrock and printed their names using my Brother Label maker.
Here are two of the 4 digi images - so fun for them to color, right?!!
I'll pop these into the mail soon to be sure they arrive before St. Patrick's Day!
