Each day I read to the children out of a book. In order to help the children stay quiet while reading stories, I will give them coloring pages or paper to draw on.
We are currently studying the pilgrims and early settlers in the US. Before the pilgrims came from England, they left England and went to Holland to escape persecutions. While the story of Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates has nothing to do with the colonies, it does have to do with Holland. So far it is a wonderful book that I can't believe I missed! Thankfully, through the Early Settlers study we are working through I found it.
This is the picture that Butterfly drew today.
Here are a couple of the coloring pages recently completed from a fabulous coloring book I found at the homeschool consignment store. They are from a coloring book by Sue Coccia.I love the designs. some of these pages kept my children busy for several readings.
