Colouring Contest

Local artist Jason Bloweryegcolouringbook is well-known for his incredible Edmonton scenery. His designs are visible on Southgate’s LuLu Lemon store and have been the backdrops for major international conferences held in Edmonton. Last year he created Edmonton’s first colouring book featuring scenes from popular destinations and hot spots around our city.

He’s back with an amazing new colouring and activity book and we want to give you a sneak peek.

HelloYEG book is a children’s colouring and activity book with an Edmonton focus that uses the Alberta curriculum to help children learn subjects like history, science, and language while exploring their city and all it has to offer. Characters Lucy, Atoo and Reena walk children through 150+ pages colouring, math, matching, drawing, play and interaction outside of just in the book.  Still under development, we invite parents and children to come visit our colouring booth for free colouring activities in the Neighbourhood market in the Northlands Expo during Kdays July 17 – 26.

Download the free colouring sheets, bring them in to The Neighbourhood during KDAYS and you and your child will be entered to win a sweet prize of locally made goodies worth over $250.
