for colouring

I have a girl who loves to colour in. The problem is the lack of cool colouring in books in the shops, they all seem to have big huge pictures and miss E really likes to colour in teeny tiny pictures. Then I had a thought while cutting up some vintage books to make cards, why not some proper books? Well as it turns out proper books are great for colouring in! I had a vintage children's book with lots of line drawings and it's perfect. Now she can colour and learn at the same time.

It's quite a funny book too, I didn't know there were "Queer fish" I'm not sure if that is a term that is used today either.

Happy weekend to you!


  1. That's so cute! Cool idea and a great way to recycle old books.
