elinap As A Story Aunt
One coloring picture that captures everyone’s unique wishes, strengths and desires is a fun way for a group of children to get to know each other and bond together as a group.
My coloring pictures that are based on children’s wishes have been empowering teamwork, igniting imagination and inspiring storytelling for thousands of children in Finland since 2015.
Every child in a group is seen & heard.
For the teachers these coloring pictures have offered a great tool to teach writing, storytelling and depending on what kind of other themes they have chosen to be presented in the picture the possibilities are unlimited. My favorite is to illuminate children’s individual character strengths as well as acts of kindness with these coloring pictures.
For families the Christmas Coloring Pictures have offered a delightful way to get into the Christmas spirit with the daily coloring. Some families have colored their advent calendar together – Just a small moment of coloring each day for 24 days unites the family especially with the little storytelling moment when you can listen to your child tell you stories from the picture.
I call myself a story aunt telling stories with my illustrations – But you are the true storyteller – Diving deeper in the illustration as the creator and inspiration for the coloring picture! Each picture holds as many stories as there are colorers.
Here in Finland I have visited schools, daycare centers and festivals in person, but also create coloring pictures via email – And include a video of the drawing process with a little greeting for you to enjoy!
