Junk Mail Colouring Book
Its bad enough in the age of the internet and emails that we still get so many letters through the door, but worse still is that loads of these sheets aren’t even printed on two sides! If trees had fists, they’d be shaking them for sure.
Naturally we save these sheets to use as rough paper, but after a couple of years it turns out the rate we use rough paper is not enough and our rough paper pile grew out of its drawer and overflowed into binders and bulldog clips.
At the same time, one of our resourceful friends gifted our daughter an awesome homemade colouring book, which sparked an idea as Mrs Serial Hoarder was also looking for a way to use up the ink on a printer cartridge that had run out of one of its colours. A quick internet search reveals multitudes of free colouring in images that anyone can download and print off, and so with a bit of time and patience you can make a brilliant kids colouring book for hours of entertainment!
- Scrap paper (blank on one side)
- Dying print cartridge
- Any yarn
We used a hole punch and some scrap bits of miscellaneous yarn to bind the paper together.
Here are some of the websites we found that have colouring in images you can print off and use:
