Summer Imagination Pages
Our Summer Imagination Pages are colouring pages with a difference! We provide part of the page and then encourage the children to get involved, designing aspects or adding in the missing elements themselves. They provide plenty of opportunity for kids to use their imagination, and they also give a little prod to the reluctant artist, who might otherwise not know where to start. We've got a real mixture of summer imagination pages here, covering summer clothes and summer food and summer outings like picnics and playgrounds and ponds - and of course the beach!
