Personalized coloring sheets and pages are fun! But for those (like me!) without fancy image editing or creating software, it can be difficult to make custom coloring sheets. Instead, I use my Cricut Explore Air 2. I have made them for different holidays and occasions, and I’ve added my kids’ names. Cricut Design Space makes it easy to turn any image that you find within the software into a coloring sheet or colorable image. Within a few minutes, you can have your own coloring book ready!

I made this Easter egg for the upcoming Easter holiday. I think I’ll go back and make a different one for each of the kids. They always like holiday themed coloring pages, but they never color an entire book. This is a good way to give them an Easter themed coloring sheet without purchasing a whole book.
