colour me happy (not bored)

This is (was) a piece of black and white wrapping paper I had bought for $4.95 and tucked away in “THE cupboard” because I just loved the design.

Little did I know it would come in so handy during our first school holidays.  It started with the first “I’m bored” from Dodo.  We sat down together with the paper and our favourite pencils and started colouring.  We left it out on the table and every time he said “I’m bored” he was to sit down and colour more.  We both love colouring in so it really just became a little game.

It’s still a work in progress but when it’s done I am going to scan it and print it on a canvas.  I reckon it will be a beautiful and terribly original reminder of our first school holidays together and our mutual love of colour and creating.

If you are bracing yourself for a long couple of weeks of “I’m bored” you might like  some of these favourite boredom buster colouring ideas all from our little store …
