One thing I am doing for Christmas this year is making the children in my family personalized coloring books. This is so easy and quick. If you have Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop you can use that, but I am using this free program to turn pictures into sketches that look like coloring pages.

http://downloads.zdnet.co.uk/0,1000000376,39180842s,00.htm?dl=1

I will find pictures of the child and do a whole book of just him or her. I plan on making a cover that will say something like "_____'s Coloring Book" or something and having it laminated. Our local office supply store charges .75 per foot for lamination.

Here is an example of how the pages come out using a picture of my own kids.

What a great idea!  My son loves to color, so I think I will make some of these up for him.
