the My Toys Coloring Book

my toys coloring book (1)

Finally, here it is, a nice little travel coloring book with 14 nifty little toys to color.
(Yes, all of these are toys that the Llama loves!)
You are free to print off as many copies as you need, and give them to every child you know. Every kid needs a little travel coloring book!

click here to download a PDF of the coloring book.

Make sure that you are printing the book at actual size (NOT shrink to fit). Print page 1 and 2 back to back (2-sided page), and page 3 and 4 back to back (2-sided page). Then simply cut along the dotted lines and fold on the solid lines. Arrange the pages so that the title page is on top, then staple or sew them together, and you have a nifty new coloring book to enjoy!

coloring book

my coloring book 1 (1)

The Llama Pappa says this earns me a “best mommy” award.

If I don't know what to draw for my daily journal, I usually pick one of the Llama's many little plastic or stuffed toys. And then today I decided that I had enough to put together a little coloring book for him. I traced the drawings out of my journal (since the originals were painted in) and then scanned them. After a little editing and a bit of fiddling in Open Office, I had a coloring book!

The drawings aren't perfect, since I was tracing through thick paper without a light box, but I kind of like the rough look, and the Llama certainly doesn't seem to mind. In fact he LOVED it! I think he especially liked that they were his toys rather than just some random pictures.

After I gather a few more drawings and figure out a better way of putting everything together I may share the book with everyone.
