Looking for an inexpensive favor to give out at your child's birthday party? You might not need to look any further than your computer and your craft stash.
With a few clicks of your mouse, some cutting and gluing, you can send the kids home with handmade coloring books that match the party's theme.
The books pictured here were made for a Little Red Riding Hood-themed party. As you turn each page, the story of Little Red is told with pictures. The coloring images were taken from the free site and pasted into a Word document.
Binding the books with a hardback cover makes them feel more special than a floppy coloring book would. Pair the books with a packet of Crayons wrapped in paper that matches the party's color scheme, and you'll have a unique, affordable favor the kids will love.
Cardboard or chipboard, such as from an empty box of cereal
Glue (spray adhesive and glue sticks work great)
Pencil or pen
A computer, printer and printer paper
