Happy National Coloring Day!
The world is a crazy place right now. The pressures and stresses of life amid a pandemic and social turmoil are uniquely intense because of how they seem to compound one another. It's a lot to process, and we all (kids and adults) need ways to decompress sometimes.
To that end, and in celebration of National Coloring Day, we've created a coloring book of some of our favorite and most iconic Columbus projects for you to go wild with. Kids schooling at home and need an indoor activity? Here you go. Working from home alone, lost all sense of time, and need a little time away from a screen? We got you. Have you always wanted to see the LeVeque tower in bright teal? Now's your time to shine.
We know it can be hard to take a break for yourself, especially doing something as "unproductive" as coloring, but it's a great way to relax and center ones self.
To help encourage some stress relief through creativity, we'll be awarding a $50 gift card to the winner of each of these age categories:
- 10 & Under
- 21 & Over
How to Enter:
- Download our coloring book here or click on the image on this page. You can print it out to color on, or use digital painting programs like Procreate, Adobe Fresco, or Adobe Photoshop
- Color a page from the coloring book. Make sure you put your name and the age category you're entering in the empty space at the bottom of the page
- Take a photo or scan your page
