Color-Me-In Notecards are a precious way for kids to write to penpals and relatives on special occasions, or just as a happy message. I love the way the different card designs look! Each one has a cute, colorable image and a fun saying on it. The little drawings are whimsical and fun for kids of all ages, and they are basic enough that kids can add their own designs. I distributed the cards to a great group of kids, and they loved coloring and writing messages to one another. I even had fun coloring in one myself. These notecards would make great birthday cards, thank you notes, holiday cards and crafts for kids at sleepaway camp. I would also make these in a classroom while teaching children writing lessons. The cards are a great, open-ended craft project that allows kids plenty of space to create their own designs and write an original message on the inside.

We have some exclusive reviews from artists Leith, age 5 3/4 and Hudson, age 3 1/2, who tested the notecards and loved them. Their mom, Nina, has given us an insider's look at the experience:

"My family was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to review the Color-Me-In Notecards Set from Chronicle Books, and the kids just loved it! I have two boys, and they love doing art projects, coloring, and all sorts of fun activities. Here is what they had to say…

Mommy: What do you think of this card kit, honey?

Leith, age 5 ¾ years old: It’s nice. I’m doing odd colors for the cats, and I think that it is gonna be cute. I think. And nothing else.

Mommy: How do you like coloring with pencils? It’s been a while.

Leith: Nice. Mommy, can I use markers now? Because markers…I just want to use markers. 

Mommy: Looks like you’re having fun coloring that card. What do you think, baby?

Hudson, age 3 ½ years old: I colored the WHOLE thing and I…exactly. I got marker on my cheek.

The take-away I got here? They definitely enjoyed coloring and both like mixed media. Hudson used the colored pencils, plus markers and crayons and got some neat effects with his. Leith created his own dot-to-dot on the inside and was pretty proud. It’s a wonderful way for kids to personalize something that will be given to someone else. Gives them a terrific opportunity to express their own creativity, rather than delivering something canned and pre-done. Plus, let’s face it, everyone loves receiving something that was created for them personally, and a Color-Me-In Notecards Set is just the thing to make it happen!"
