Personalized Coloring Pages

I just had to share this amazingly innovative and simple project for kids that I found on Tip Junkie the other day. Turn any photo into a sketch for your kids to color!

Simply go to Dumpr, a cool website where you can play all kinds of tricks with your photos. For a coloring page, choose the sketch option.

Then you upload the photo of your choice and within seconds you will have a black and white sketch that's ready for crayons, markers or paint! I uploaded and printed 15 photos of various family members for our kids to color and I spent a total of 10 minutes from start to finsh. I saved all of the sketches in a folder on my computer so I can print them again and again.

Here's our 3-year-old's interpretation of mommy and daddy. I don't know, maybe my eye looks even better in this version. Wouldn't it be fun to make an entire personalized coloring book to give as a gift at a birthday party?

Absolutely adorable! I can't wait to try this - also would be cute to make little shutterfly cards with the result - so fun! Talk to you soon -
