Storybook Theatre’s Summer Coloring & Enrichment Activities!

Storybook Theatre Hawaii is super happy to offer this series of educational fact sheets and coloring pages to students staying from school during the Covid-19 pandemic and other school breaks. Most of the coloring pages are accompanied by a fact sheet or article for additional learning and enrichment.

The coloring pages and fact sheets were created by Award-winning local artist and author, Monika Mira. These coloring pages have been excerpted from our larger coloring and activity books that accompany our Marine Eco Tour.

Storybook Theatre is offering $15 prize to the most creative coloring sheet returned by a student in each category. Winning entries will also be featured in our blog and newsletter. Entries for all categories are due by June 15, 2020. Just write your name and age along with your parents’ contact info on the back of the coloring sheet and return to us by mail at P.O. Box 820, Hanapepe, HI 96816.

If you do not have a printer, you may stop by Storybook Theatre in Hanapepe to pick up your coloring sheets.
