Your Coloring Book
Instead of buying a coloring book and having your child color in someone else's pictures, encourage her to make outlines for her own coloring book. Modern designs work best (the kind that don't look like anything specific). Once the outer design has been made in black, color in the inside. Collect the pictures in a binder.
