These free summer colouring bookmarks will really brighten up any summer reading that you do. They are perfect for any summer reading program and are a fun addition to a rainy summer day. They would make the perfect addition to any book you might gift too.
I commissioned one of my favourite illustrators Leslieanne from Leslieanne Made It to design these summer colouring bookmarks for you and they are totally adorable and perfect for kids and adults alike.

I always buy the best quality I can afford, not just for me but for my kids too. I want colouring to be a joyful experience. These are mine and the
These are mine and the MiniMad’s suggestions to you. Our tried and tested favourites. When I first started colouring I just pinched the boy’s products, which is why adult colouring is so accessible and over the period of a year I now have my own supplies!
