Colour in Fun from Phoenix Trading!
Fact: Colouring is therapeutic!
So no more excuses! Go, sit and colour in Christmas with the children or just colour because it soothes you and it relieves stress. Don’t have to be artistic to get the benefits from relaxing with a fun picture and some pencils.
I’m not a big fan of felts as my children have a tendency to draw on things I can’t wash the ink out of!
There are a number of products in the Christmas range that can be coloured in. Since the first paper tablecloth was introduced 4 years ago the range has expanded to include finger puppets, posters, bunting, activity packs, thank you cards and frieze cards. The mini-cards pictures below are two of the best-selling designs
Colour in Christmas Cards (Xmas and Nativity)
Some people are not a fan of the abbreviated form of Christmas to Xmas, and to those I apologise for using Xmas sometimes!
Each pack (pictured above) contains 10 colour in Christmas cards. Includes 5 designs so there are 2 of each design. Envelopes are supplied, they are blue. Features of these cards include pop-out bits like arms, hat or scarfs and wings for example. There is a space on the back for the colouring artist to add their name. These make great Christmas cards for children, for teachers to use as end of term activities and I’m sure you can think of other ideas. Please share your ideas in the comments.

Each pack costs just £3.50 and the cards are sized at 4 x 4″ : 102 x 102mm
