Color Me Webby!

One of my favorite things to do on the Museum grounds is coloring in black and white pictures. 

The shades of green on the trees and the pink, yellow, and orange flowers inspire me to fill pages and pages with color.   
          What colors would you use for this picture of me? 
Webby's Coloring Activity! 

Adult Step:  Save the image to your computer by right clicking on it and selecting the 'Save Picture As' option. When printing, select the Full Page Print option to produce a large image on a regular 8.5 x 11'' sheet of paper. 

What art supply will you use to color between the lines of this picture?  Other than paint, crayons, markers, or colored pencils, can you find a different material to use? Maybe you will discover a whole new way to fill in this image; like different kinds of beans from the kitchen, clippings from magazines and newspapers, or assorted flowers and plants from outside. The possibilities are endless, but just remember to ask an adult permission before using any item you find.    

Let's fill in that huge white space in the background!  Draw and color a background for your Webby to live in.  What would I look like hanging out in outer space, swimming deep in the sea, enjoying a three-ring circus, or just relaxing at Shelburne Museum’s duck pond?  Choose any scene you would like - it’s completely up to you! 

Hang your finished Webby picture in Owl Cottage or take a photograph of your picture and email it to me at for a chance to see it on my blog.  Happy coloring!
