Coloring Pages!

I got a new idea!

What if, on each of Foster and Panda’s adventure posts, I was also able to include a free, printable coloring page for kids? (Or, let’s face it, grown-ups too.)

 

Then, to avoid having to draw frequently repeated images, what if I could scan them into the computer so they could be inserted into different Word documents?

It worked!

All you have to do (hopefully) is click on the links below and print out your free coloring pages. (Or, if you’re not into coloring, you can just click to look at them.) As in “Only a Test”,  my first “coloring page post”, these pages are not perfect. They still need some work but I was so excited about my idea that I had to post them anyway!

P.S. I realized after posting these that the Word Documents do not seem to display correctly on mobile devices (at least not on mine). They should work properly from a laptop or desktop computer. I added a PDF for each, and they display nicely on my iPhone.
