Connecting and De-stressing: a shared coloring book for children and their parents


This coloring book is meant to be shared by a child and their parents as they make their way through the uncertain times of COVID. Each spread has a prompt with a page for “Mommy and Daddy” and a page for “Me.” The prompts are simple and don’t take too much time, so it serves as a nice 5 minute mental check-in when especially stressed or anxious. The prompts are meant to prompt conversation between parent and child about how they’re each feeling, starting by describing what they drew and why. It can be helpful for young children who don’t necessarily know how to express some of the things they’re feeling with words. It also helps to strengthen the emotional bond between parent and child even if the parent is gone at work all day.
