Let’s Color Together: A Shareable Coloring Book for Parents and Kids brings a new level of engagement to the coloring book craze by featuring beautiful spreads designed for two people to color and enjoy at once. If you’re struggling to find screen-free activities you’ll both enjoy, this is the perfect opportunity to sit down, connect, and share some fun!
Featuring 10″ x 10″ images of flowers, birds, fish, teapots, houses, and more, Let’s Color Together is designed to be shared by an adult and a child at the same time. The pages are top bound so you can sit on opposing sides of the table, place the book in between you, and color simultaneously. The image on the left side is the more intricate “adult” version, while the image on the right side is the simpler “child” version.
The pages are perforated for easy removal. However, since the images are printed double sided, removing your finished pages one by one throws off the alignments of the “sharable” aspect of the book.
This is the first time I’ve ever seen a coloring book like this and I love the concept. Unfortunately, it works best if you have a fairly patient child. Otherwise, you’ll find that your little one is ready to move on to the next picture well before you’ve finished the first section of your side of the page!
Here are some sample parent and child spreads from the book:
