A take on Colour by Number

Do you remember those colouring books of yesteryear where a picture came to life following the colouring in instructions?   They were a love of mine as a child, so much so I turned colour by number into colour by nature on a few of our activity afternoons here on the farm. Matching colours with nature we learned about colour matching and nature.

It seems I’m not the only one remembering colour by nature, Quarto have turned it into sticker by number as a fun way to recreate the wonderful animals of the ocean, savannah, woodland and jungle.

What we thought of the sticker art colour by number books

Each sticker art book has a sticker by number animal to make from stickers in the back of the book. Flip the page over and see the animal you should have made, and then read all about them in a fun few paragraphs of interesting text. The books are educational, fun and good quality; everything we have come to expect from Quarto. At only £5.99 a book they make a great pocket money purchase or birthday present for a classroom friend that any parent would approve of.
