I’m participating in a community health fair this weekend and I’ve been busy all week preparing materials for my table. I wanted to have a few fun sheets as handouts for young children with their parents. I already had a word seach and an I-Spy page, but didn’t have a fun coloring sheet. So, I made one. I started with a photograph of a teddy bear with medical play supplies that I took for my practice website. I changed the photo into black and white and manipulated the contrast so that the edges of objects were dark and distinct. I printed this out and put it on a clear plastic clipboard with a blank sheet of paper on top. I used a flashlight to backlight it a bit. I traced in pencil and fiddled with the drawing until it looked the way I wanted. Then, I traced the pencil version again on a new sheet of paper using a permanent Micron pen. I scanned this to create a coloring page. Feel free to print and use for non-commercial purposes: teddy bear coloring page!
