Coloring Pages from Your Photos in 3 Easy Steps

So we were walking around Toys R Us the other day, something we do pretty frequently, and we discovered Crayola Color Wonder. It’s this new coloring book-like thing with markers that only work on special Crayola paper… paper that doesn’t let you color outside the lines.

That made us a little sad, especially coming from Crayola.

Coloring books are one of the great joys of childhood, and we think every child should have the opportunity to scribble outside the lines, on the lines, or even on the walls (just once.)

Luckily, you can still buy regular old-fashioned coloring books. Heck, you can even make your own! In fact, Photojojo friend Karina Benson has a great tutorial that shows you how to do just that in three simple steps!
