Project! Coloring Pages from Photos

What child is not obsessed with coloring?  We’ve gone through enough coloring books to fill our house by now.  I got tired of the same old [fill in Disney character here] books and wanted to find something new and fun to do.

What could be more fun to color than a picture of yourself?!


I fiddled around with Photoshop for a day before finding this article which spells it all out, and it could not be easier.  Take your photo, make it black and white, and apply a sketch/photocopy filter.

Now I’m thinking about taking my idea to someplace like Kinko’s and having the whole project printed up and bound like a “real” coloring book.  Perhaps for Christmas?  I do believe my daughter will freak out with joy.  I’d better stock up on crayons and markers.
