12 We Love: Colour and Colouring-In

by Suzanne Milne on 22/01/2014

Colouring-in is one of those joyful activities that makes everyone happy – who knows whether it’s the delightful hues of the rainbow that brighten a child’s psyche, or the hours of quiet play that imbue a household (and undoubtedly a parent) with a serene sense of peaceful achievement.

Whatever the secret ingredient – colouring-in is pure magic

Best of all, at the end of the afternoon’s ‘work’, there is something to hang, showcase or reflect upon for years to come…

Here we round up 12 of our favourite books and toys to help inspire children of all ages to get in on the colouring-in bug – from books to teach your baby the names of colours through to the colour-saturated inspiration of Herve Tullet’s Colouring Book, Rosie Flo’s pop-up 3D Pool Parties and OMY’s colouring-in posters or even the blank canvas of KidsOnRoof’s Casa playhouse.

If you have a favourite book or toy that features colour or that is liable to prompt a spate of colouring-in, please leave us a comment, send us a message, or tweet it to us. We’d love to know all about it…
