Tips For Printing
While any printer paper will do, coloring pages are best printed on heavyweight printer paper to help avoid any ripping during the coloring process. This is especially important if you’ll be using it during a car ride, where the drawing surface may not always be stable.
For traveling, storage compartment clipboards are a great way to keep all your coloring and activity supplies together.
