A Good Reason to Color

I discovered this neat organization that makes coloring a very worth while activity.
The organization is called Color a Smile.
They describe themselves as a non-profit organization spreading smiles with cheerful drawing. Color A Smile collects crayon drawings from school children.Every month they distribute these drawings to Nursing Homes,Meals on Wheels Programs, and Individuals all across the country.
The website offers a wide variety of printable coloring pages ready to print, all the kids need to do is color. After coloring your picture simply send your pictures to the address provided and Color a Smile distibutes the artwork.
We all had fun coloring our festive pictures.
I plan on this being a regular activity around our "little house".
The kids love coloring and I hate throwing away artwork after a short time.
Now we now the art is being used to "make someone smile".
