During these crazy uncertain times, our lives are changing in ways we would never imagine and our reality is now a different one. Since most of us are staying at home right now, I thought it would be fun to share some simple DIY coloring clipboards to make with the kids.
I was inspired by the Doodlebug clipartTM line of clipboards to create mine. I started by cutting a piece of 2mm recycled chipboard sheet to about 4" x 5" inches. Next, I choose some pattern paper from my Doodlebug 6 x 6 paper pads and wrap the chipboard piece. I used liquid adhesive for this step.
Once I covered the entire piece of chipboard, I punched two holes on the top part with a distance of about 1.75" inches from each other and put an eyelet to protect them.
After that, I needed to make the coloring pages. To do this, I cut a 12" x 12" sheet of white cardstock in pieces of 3" x 4" inches, rounded the bottom corners, grabbed a bunch of my Doodle StampsTM and stamped different images. 

Each clipboard has ten pages. For some, I stamped little scenes and for some others, I just stamped one image so the kids can have fun creating their own scenes.
Following this, I punch holes at top of the coloring pages as well and used Doodlebug chunkybradsTM to keep them in place. In the end, I embellish each clipboard with some washi tape and stickers to give it more fun and interest.
Now, it is your turn to create coloring clipboards and spread some joy! Personally, I'll get my clipboards ready and will send them to my little cousins so they can have some fun coloring during the quarantine. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this new project and liked the ideas I shared. Also, don’t forget that if you have any questions you can always leave a comment below and I’ll be happy to help you.
