Zero Waste(ish) Coloring Books

Have you seen these new coloring books for adults?  If you've waited at a grocery store checkout lately, you probably have.  And like all the candy, chapstick and unloaded gift cards that also grace that temptation station, my daughter wants one.

But I won't buy her one.  Because once you give in, you know you'll have fend off future requests for the next decade or so.

Plus, I just discovered you can print your coloring books - for free!

1.  Google "(insert animated character of choice) coloring pages."

2.  Set some rescued half-used pages in the printer.  I use junk mail that I can't seem to turn off and my oldest's schoolwork.
Zero Waste printer paper.

3.  Hit print.

4.  Add kid.  Preferably with some crayons you rescued from a child-friendly restaurant.

Et Voilà!

  1. If you get too much junk mail, do what I do:

    I take all their mailings, all that'll fit anyway, and put it in their postage-free envelope and mail it back to them. That way they have to pay the postage (haha) and get their crap back.

    Oh, and I don't send back any part of the mailing that has my name on it.

    You can also fill those envelopes with shred. That's fun too.
