This month’s printable coloring page from Melanie Hope Greenberg is perfect for kids who love trains. As you know, that includes my kids, and probably yours as well. Color the subway train and help find its way through the maze to the A, 7 and N train stations.
There’s more than one route to follow (just like the real subway). When I left the coloring pages out on the table for after school, Kiddo and New Kid were drawn to them like flies. Anything with the NYC train on it, they immediately recognize as quality goods.
When your kids are done with the maze, why not print out another one of Melanie’s coloring and activity pages? After all, sometimes you need a little help keeping your kids busy!
