CLEVELAND, Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Creativity for Kids offers the most creative coloring books ever! Kids love to color, so we developed a product line called Coloring & ARTivity Books that takes coloring books to a new level of fun and enrichment for children. Original designs done by students from the Cleveland Institute of Art add to the appeal, and give each book a unique look and feel. This collaborative venture started in 2009 under the direction of Phyllis Brody, Co-Founder of Creativity for Kids.
All Coloring & ARTivity Books include some special features that make them an exceptional creative experience for children:
- High quality papers that work well with Faber-Castell Children's Art Supplies
- Tips and techniques that inspire innovative ways to color and create
- Spiral binding so the pages lay flat for easy coloring
- Perforated pages so artwork can be easily removed from the book and displayed
- Activities such as mix & match and dot-to-dot enrich the experience
Two new titles join the classic line this year – Cool Metallics Pictures & Designs and Fun Things to Color A to Z.
Cool Metallics Pictures & Designs has 24 pages of quality art paper with cute and trendy designs featuring unicorns, cupcakes, rainbows, and butterflies. The book comes with 5 metallic pencils in a reusable storage pouch. Use the pencils to color on black backgrounds for sparkly effects.
Fun Things to Color A to Z contains 24 pages of quality art paper plus 8 bright, washable markers perfect for little hands to color with. The designs are a great first coloring and learning experience as they cover the alphabet from A-Alligators to Z-Zebras and lots of favorite items in between.
