Parragon Book Buddies – Disney Art Therapy

This month’s Book Buddies scheme has been a little different – we always love receiving new books to read and share but at the end of March we were sent some of the new ‘Disney Frozen’ and ‘Disney Princess’ Art Therapy colouring books to try out.

There are over 100 patterns to choose from in each book and they are actually a lovely way to spend 15 minutes before Isabella’s bath and bed time. It helps her to wind down nicely but also allows us to talk to each other about the day she’s had too.

 

I’ve had to get over the fact that Isabella can’t quite keep inside the lines and just enjoy the calming quarter of an hour that we share each evening while Daddy gives Benjamin a bath. I actually think that having smaller patterns to colour has helped Isabella to learn not to scribble as much when trying to colour in and stay in the lines.

I’ve not managed to colour a whole page in by myself as yet as every time I get it out, small helpers want to join in.

 

I’ve really loved trying out the Art Therapy books and think they are brilliant.
