Color and Contemplate: How Old Are You?

Dress 1

I just finished telling people I have no artistic talent over at 26 Letters, and now I’ve published a beautiful hand-drawn sundress coloring page. (OK, so it’s not beautiful. How about cute? Is it at least cute?) It was actually about 75% tracing 25% Kim’s personal touch. Meaning I added the flowers and the ruffle on the bottom.

I’m a flower doodling  pro. I draw about 100 of them on my notes at church every Sunday. (I can doodle and pay attention to the sermon at the same time by the way 😉 I’m a woman. I multi-task. )

Now I’ve gotten myself off-track…

Each week this summer I will be doing a color and contemplate post: Print and color the dress. Contemplate the Haiti statistic.

 They say knowledge is power. But I prefer to think knowledge can lead to compassion. So let’s squeeze a little more knowledge into our brains, shall we?

What is the life expectancy in Haiti?

a) 40

b) 77

c) 62

What is the life expectancy in the US?

a) 78

b) 52

c) 84

The life expectancy in Haiti  is  c) 62  according to UNICEF 2011 statistics. The life expectancy in the US is a)  78 according to World Bank 2011 statistics.

**I’d love to display some completed coloring pages, so take a photo of your child’s handiwork, send it to me and I’ll post it on the blog or over on facebook.
