Colouring books are the most used activity books at our home. But once our kids have used them, do we need to throw them? Well,hold on..I will be showing you 5 super easy ways to upcycle them to create learning activities for your kids.
And as always, all these activities are HANDMADE, so just grab a simple pen, white paper, some cardboard ( for story cards) and a scissor along with the Copy- Colour book that has been completed by the child.
1. Scissor Cutting Practice
2. DIY Story Cards / Story props
3. Creating Simple Phonics Activities
4. Writing and Spelling practice Activity
5. DIY Greeting cards/Letters
Getting printouts for creating educational activities for a child is always an option. But please remember, Paper is precious. Before discarding any kind of paper, kindly evaluate if we can use it in any other way and inculcate the same habit in our kids. So, lets’s go and upcycle the colouring books and get the child involved in creating more beautiful stuff from them. Happy parenting everyone!!
