Make these DIY giant colouring pages with your kids and keep them occupied on a rainy day

Didn’t you always want to draw on the wall as a child? I did! And actually once, just before painting the house, my mom did let me draw on the walls. I remember I loved it so much! But obviously I’m not letting my kids to paint on the walls. But recently I came across giant colouring pages on Etsy, and that inspired me to make my own.

I’m not an illustrator, but my kids still loved colouring it. So if you don’t feel like an artist yourself, you can either get the Etsy one, or try making some simple colouring pages yourself. Smily clouds, flowers and fishes are simple enough! If you’re more talented than I am, you can add some animals too.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Big roll of paper ( like the one from ikea)

Draw some simple things like: clouds, banners, little houses, fishes, flowers and stars.
Hang your colouring pages on the wall. Let them colour.

And then they started to colour it, and draw on it. And I had piece and quite in the house :). It’s a win-win situation, wouldn’t you say?

I let them try different tools too: crayons, pensions and some colourful chalk. It did look like a quite messy drawing at the end, but that’s the way it should be 🙂
