Colouring in activity to entertain young people

Thursday 06 August 2020

Colouring in and art activities to entertain young people at home during coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions.

In collaboration with artists, Yarra Youth Services has released a series of activity and colouring-in books that your kids can enjoy from home. There are colouring and art activities on each page.

Just download, save, print, fold and staple the activity booklet. It works best if you print it out double-sided.

If you don’t have access to a printer, that’s not a problem, simply contact @yarrayouthservices on Instagram and they can post you a copy of the activity book. To encourage your kids to get creative, you can share their artwork on Instagram. Don’t forget to tag us in your creations!

We can’t wait to see the creativity that everyone has to offer.
