Crafty Weekends Review & Link Party

Disclosure: I was sent these books in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Tonight I am going to share two fun coloring books. These books are a bit like adult coloring books but for kids--think tweens. They are recommended for ages 7 to 10. Hazel LOVES them. The series is Press Out + Color, and we have had the pleasure of sharing with you some of the other books in this series. The first one we will share tonight is Press Out and Color Unicorns by Kate McLelland.

 Hazel loves the unicorns. We each colored one and I started on one of the rainbows. (We didn't color both sides yet however.) The decorations in this book are double sided and often three-dimensional. They have a hole to punch out to hang them like ornaments. Several of them have extra pieces that fit like the wings to turn the unicorns into flying ones. They are on a cardstock or cardboard thickiness so it lasts well.

After we colored these Hazel started making a place for the unicorns to live. She decided the items from the next book could live there as well. 

Our next book is Press Out and Color Flamingos, Llamas and Other Cool Things also by Kate McLelland. I was really excited to see this one since Thirty-One (disclosure: I will receive a commission with any purchase made through this link) has flamingo and llama prints this spring. We planned on making them for a Thirty-One party but didn't quite get them done. However tonight we had fun coloring different things from the book. Hazel made a fun llama.

She also colored this watermelon ornament. She ahd so much fun playing with the various markers and pens we have. She used Switcheroo on this one so she colored it all dark green and then used the other side to switch the flesh to pink. 

I colored a flamingo and catcus that were on the same page.

You can see how these books have details for the kids to color but not quite as many as adult books and they are fun since they punch out and are three-dimensional. Hazel loves to play with them but they also make adorable decorations. I hope you will check these books out.
