Homemade Coloring Books

I made these for Robby, Syd & Rob for Christmas. Super late, but this is a good birthday/"anytime" gift too.


It was easy: find pictures, mess around with the "photocopy" tool in Photoshop, print them out, & then get them "notepad bound" at Kinkos. They all loved them (despite Rob's face in the picture).

Great idea! I think this would also be a cool idea if you are introducing something new into your child's life and you want to make them a personalized coloring book/story book about it....potty training, having a new sibling, moving into a new bed (which are things I am thinking about a lot because Oliver is going through a lot right now).
