Kids Event Planning: History Coloring Book

Coloring History Opportunity for Kids

T3 Consortium, a local company in the Somerset Hills, is proud to announce a new program for education programs to create a great program to make available for children while teaching them about some of the greatest historic people, places, and events in New Jersey’s Somerset Hills area including Bedminster, Bernards Twp, Bernardsville, Far Hills, Peapack & Gladstone.

What better way to teach kids about local history than by having them color some of the greatest events in Somerset Hills history with over 34 historic images including:

Basking Ridge – The historic 600 year old oak tree

Bernardsville – Phyllis the Ghost
Bedminster – General Knox and the Vanderveer House
Pluckemin  – America’s First Military Academy
Basking Ridge – The capture of General Lee
Peapack/Gladstone – The great lime kiln
Somerset Hills – The great Lene-Lenape Indians

Program Ideas

For Schools (Pre-K thru 5th grades)

A great idea is to distribute the book to each student, pick maybe one image per week, tell a brief story about the event, person or location. Let the students either do it in class, or take home for an assignment.

For Camp Leaders

Do the same as the school program, or consider doing some sort of event where the children get to color an image (their choice or yours) and then they get to tell about what they did when they complete the drawing (e.g. color selection or maybe adding an activity where the child gets to write something the person in the image might have said.

For Historic Organizations

Pick the image that you like the best (e.g. your facility or story), have the children complete a xeroxed copy of that image. When they present their colored image back, post them on the wall. THEN, when they think they’re done, GIVE EACH OF THEM THEIR OWN BOOK! Watch their eyes light up! Then create a follow up activity and have the kids (and their parents) come back to your facility. A great traffic enhancer!

For Real Estate Agents

Yes, real estate agents! What better way to welcome a new family to town than with a coloring book for their kids that shows them the rich history of the Somerset Hills area. For such a small gesture, imagine how happy the kids will be when they get the chance to color historic figures from their new town. A nice touch to say the least!
