Once the TV is off, one of my kids’ favorite things to do to pass the time is coloring. I could give them some blank paper and crayons, and an hour later, they come running at me with all the “creations” that they had made just for me.
Last week we tried Crayola Color Alive Action Coloring Pages, and coloring has been changed forever in our house! Now the kids prefer coloring on their new action coloring pages more than anything else. You see, with these special coloring pages, the fun begins after they have finished coloring. The creations that my kids color come to life on the screen of any tablet or smartphone. And once they are alive, these creations can be captured with my kids in a selfie or in an action shot interacting with them.
It has been so much fun to just sit and watch their expressions as the picture that they drew is turned into a 3D animated figure. They instantly jump up and get so excited, and just want to walk all over the house with their new creation. I also could not believe how much the figure matched the colors and shading that they had used.
(Even my son could use the app all by himself!)
The best part of all? The app was free and extremely easy to use. We simply colored the page, pointed the app’s camera at the page and brought the creature to life. Once it was alive and kicking or spitting fire, it was easy to make it larger or smaller, or change the position so it was better to take pictures with. Once they are alive, you can also tap on the screen to make them interact.
With the wide variety of new action coloring page themes, there was something for each of my kids. They have Skylanders™, Barbie™, Enchanted Garden™ and Mythical Creatures™. Each book comes with 16 pages and characters.
You can see the fun that we had at the Merkley household in this video:
After we were done, we uploaded pictures of our living creations to the sweepstakes on Crayola.com. You should enter as well! There are 3 weekly prizes and one grand prize of a trip for 4 to the new Crayola Experience in Orlando, Florida.

If you are looking for something to keep your kids entertained for hours on end, these pages are the ticket since they Bring Your Coloring To Life. Our kids continue to constantly ask to use the tablet to play with their drawings. It has been so much fun to see their creativity grow, and see them find the new possibilities with their drawings. In our house, coloring will never be the same.
Please let me know if you’ve tried these pages out. I’d love to know what you think! 😀
