Going to the beach is everyone's favourite summer excursion! Kids can use our paper to write about their day at the beach with the family, to make up a story, or as a "what do you see in the picture" activity.
Summer Story Paper
Our summer story paper combines some of our summer colouring pages to spark the imagination and space underneath for kids to either
- write about what they see,
- make up a story, or
- record an event in their own lives.
And of course they are an excuse for some colouring in, too! Story papers are available with simple lines or with handwriting lines.

Use these to keep the kids "in the loop" during the long summer holidays, date them and stick them in a scrapbook or holiday diary. It will be fun for everyone to look back on in years to come!
