DIY Your Holiday

Share this:

Are you an avid adult coloring book user and wondering what what to do with your finished pages? Or, are you looking for unique ways to showcase your children’s works of art?
Here are a few ideas, just in time to create DIY holiday gifts this season: 

Coasters are the perfect platform for warm drinks on a chilly day.



Use the colored pages as your guide in bookmark form.



DIY paper ornaments put the finishing touches on your tree.



Create coordinated cards, gift tags and wrapping paper



… or a bow as the cherry on top of any gift!



Haven’t jumped on the adult coloring craze yet?

Check out MindWare’s new Color By Number collection!

Even more relaxing than traditional coloring books, the Color By Number system takes the stress out of choosing which color to use where. Each illustration is an original work of art–beautifully drawn, colored and then numbered by talented artists from across the country. And, each artist-quality pencil is printed with an identifying name and number along the triangular comfort-grip barrel that corresponds with the numbered illustrations.

Plus, show us your style and win!

Share your favorite colored illustration from any MindWare Color by Number coloring book for a chance to win a Wild Wonders coloring book and a set of 36 Color by Number colored pencils. Monthly winners will also be featured on our Facebook page and other social media. Email a copy of your completed Color by Number illustration to Don’t have a MindWare Color by Number book yet?

  1. My grandchildren are 4 and 5 years old. I have been trying to supplement their endless supply of “toys and books” with more educational, experiential “toy” activities. Mindware’s “Dig It Up! Dinosaur Eggs” is the BEST Christmas gift so far! I took them to the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History earlier this year and we got eggs that hatch when placed in water, but digging your own dinosaurs from eggs is excellent for motor coordination, excitement, and inspiration into the sciences!
