#4 Create A Family Coloring Book
Gather the photos you want to use to create your coloring book and digitally story them in a separate folder. You can scan your photos or save the ones on your computer. Upload the photo(s) of yourself or family member(s) using one of the links below. Print them out and bind them. You can use the basic staple and tape method to hold your book together. You can create your cover for your coloring book using card stock or photo paper. Remember to use regular paper to print out you converted pictures so that you can use crayons, color pencils or markers on them.

Bonus: Make A Place Mat or Frame Ready Photo. You can use the same process in creating your photo and color your black and white printouts with vibrant colored markers. Once you are done with your photo cover your artwork in Elmer’s White Glue and let it dry overnight. You will find a beautiful vibrant durable placemat for kids or special occasions or a photo you can mat and hang in your favorite spot.
(Supplies: Colored markers, popsicle sticks, small paint brush to spread the glue or just use your fingers. You know you use to pour glue in your hands and let it dry then peeled the glue off trying to make a complete hand print before the glue broke apart. I know I am not the only one who did that. Yes, you did… You know you did it. You probably ate paste too. THAT, I never did…. I’m just sayin’.
