Made with love from me for you, I hope you enjoy these free downloadable colouring pages.
You know I'm all about the feelings - art is a fabulous way to help hold what's in your heart and see more clearly the bits and bobs that are busy bubbling away in your front of mind - and sometimes things that are hidden just below the surface.
These drawings could be purely fun. Grab some pencils or crayons, glitter and glue or hunt around for collage pieces in the garden or craft box, then dive in and lose yourself in the colour - go on, play a little.
They can also be great conversation starters or beginnings for storytelling or writing time with your kids - get that imagination into gear.
If you're feeling really adventurous, you might like to use them as a way to explore your feelings or maybe as a prompts to prod at and unravel unfinished thoughts in your journal or in conversation with someone you trust about what's going on inside for you and yours - make a connection.
You'll find a few questions and cues below for each picture to make it a little easier to tell your own story if you'd like to.
The only thing left to decide now is whether you'll stay inside the lines! Happy colouring, jx
