Suggestions on what to do with your colored pages
• Add your own special messages or backgrounds to the images
• Snap a photo and share on social media, online or via email
• If safe to do so, have an adult help you post fi nished pages around your neighborhood, or on your front door, mailbox or other location people will see and enjoy them. Spread good cheer!
• Give to a neighbor, friend or relative who could use cheering up (Ask if you should leave it on their door, if they are sick).
• Send in the mail to a friend or relative elsewhere. Sending through the mail can be an extra special gift compared to sharing online. If you have tape, you can fold one page to make a pretty envelope, and put another page or letter inside of it.
• Give (physically if safe, or share digitally) to someone working hard to keep us all well, such as a doctor, nurse, caregiver, grocery worker, delivery person, truck driver… can you think of others to say thank you to?
