There’s a neat feature in Microsoft Word that you might have missed. Did you know you there are coloring pages and activity sets for kids? This is a great feature if you happen to have some kids visiting or you’re looking for a new rainy day activity that doesn’t involve an electronic device.
First, open up Word and choose New to start a new document.
In the search box where it says “Search for online templates,” type in “Coloring and activity pages” and click the magnifying glass.
You’ll see “Coloring and activity pages” in the results under Category. Click on it.
You’ll see a pretty good selection of pages to scroll through.
Among the activity sheets, are several multi-page coloring books including Christmas, Halloween, and St. Patricks Day.
There are also activity sheets for things like Groundhog day and Daylight Saving Time.
Just click on the sheet to download and open. Then you can print the sheet.
You can also customize many of the sheets with the name of the child, age, dates, and other information such as the name of a class.
One of my favorites is the paper doll sets available with either a girl or a boy and several sets of clothing to color and cut out.
