Too often individuals just consume culture rather than contributing to it, but these DIY coloring projects put the ball back in the general population's court. Take out your watercolor paints, your pencil crayons, your regular crayons and anything else that can fill in the blanks -- getting to give color to these monochromatic images is like giving life to mere shadows.

Many artists and companies are attempting to reach out to people by encouraging them to interact with products, instead of just observing them. This creates a deeper attachment to the object, and a more complete experience with it as well. Each page you color will be uniquely yours.

Great to buy for the kids, or keep for yourself on a rainy day, let the left side of your brain have a turn to think with these DIY coloring projects.
