Recycled Cards to Color

Lately I've been exploring the hobby of inkstamping and digital stamping, so I was thrilled to come across this kid-friendly variation that is also eco-friendly! The Stubby Pencil Studio, which has the tagline "Eco Products for Creative Kids", sells recycled cards for kids to color. They have single cards or sets, and I think the valentine cards would be terrific for little ones to color for friends and family. But I was also drawn to the "miscellaneous" cards and sets, because we shouldn't need holidays to send someone we love a card!

My favorite set (no surprise here) was the "Six in Space", which includes an alien, a rocket, a spaceship, a planet, a moon, and a star. I love the bold simple lines, which I think would be perfect for little ones to color. There are many other sets, such as a "Six on the Go" set of vehicles, "Six Little Buddies" (simple animals, shown right), "Six Dinosaurs", and so on. They're all just so appealing! Be sure to click on the various multi-pack sets shown along the left column, or you might miss some!

The cards themselves measure 4.25 by 5.5 inches, so a pack of six should fit in a reasonably sized stocking. This is a great way to encourage your kids to be creative and to retain some communication with family and friends that isn't wired or plugged in! These cards would be especially great for children to send to grandparents who live far away.
