Earlier today I shared with you a Christian coloring book, perfect for the whole family to enjoy.

This coloring book is a bit different, it's meant for TWO to share at one time!

Let's Color Together brings a new level of engagement to the coloring book craze by featuring beautiful spreads specifically designed for two people tocolor and enjoy at once, and is the perfect opportunity to sit down, connect, and share some fun with your kids!

From the author:

Last summer, after reading about the popularity of coloring books, and seeing all the wonderful ones available in stores, I decided to host a coloring party for some friends. I designed some ornate coloring pages and printed them out, and envisioning an evening of coloring and conversation, with tea and scones (or wine!), I sent around an email asking friends when they could gather. Everyone loved the idea...and asked if their kids could come, too. Well, of course! In planning our coloring party, we all realized that the kids would want to color what we were coloring, so I started designing some simpler versions of the ornate coloring pages--and LET'S COLOR TOGETHER was born.

Each spread in Let’s Color Together features two versions of the same design – one is typically more detailed and intricate than the other – that are laid out so parents and kids can color face-to-face across a table. Let's Color Togetheralso features perforated pages so families can color side-by-side or display their handiwork!

As you can see, the images vary greatly in tone. But ALL are perfect for using as artwork on your walls, or the walls in your child's room.

Because they are meant to be colored together, the pages are double sides, so you will loose one back page, if you pull out one to frame!

Course Miss Grace decided that sitting ACROSS from each other was NOT the way to color together. She insisted in sharing a chair ad coloring together, which would have worked out better had I not had a sore left wrist and not able to color left handed, but we survived, we just figured out how to rotate to book and color on each other's drawings!

This is a great rainy afternoon activity and a great way to engage your kids in talking, while coloring too! Sometimes something as relaxing as coloring will get your kids to open up and share where they wouldn't have before We can't recommend this book enough! 

So  if you want to find a new way to connect with your kids,
pick up this book and #letscolortogether !
