For the LOVE of colouring!

Did you know that March 31st is "National Crayon Day"? We love these fun holidays at Maplelea! So today we celebrate the invention of the crayon as well as the joy of colouring. While it is an "unofficial" holiday, it is a perfect excuse to get creative, dust off your crayons and spend some relaxing time colouring!

I agree Alice! Everyone loved it! Before COVID we went to Bon Ton Bakery and the kids did a colouring contest. When they saw this it sparked their memories. I think it would be a fantastic idea!

This is a nice idea – though a touch tricky to print. My kids are wondering if you could make this into a colouring contest and post all the entries so we can see them online!

I just discovered these today, May 1. These look very nice! Thank you for putting these up and leaving them up past March 31. I knew (from one of Maplelea’s journal pages) that crayons were invented in Canada, and I sure loved colouring with crayons as a child. I’m going to print two of these from the public library’s printer and colour them in. Thank you!
