Coloring and Cutting Activity: Standing character templates

Developed this coloring activity for an upcoming Family Night at a Preschool later this month.
Once the image prototype was colored with Prismacolor Premier Double-Ended Art Markers, it was carefully cut with sharp scissors.

If the figures are short enough, you can even fit up to two character per letter size sheet of card stock.

Print any of these templates on letter size 110 lb card stock, color the characters with crayons or markers, carefully cut outlines, assemble standing figure by joining the strips of paper behind it, and enjoy your new cast of characters. If your Jet Printer can not handle card stock, you could always print them first on 24 lb paper and then glue it to the card stock.A few examples of possible color combinations for these coloring templates:Set of finished colored samples standing around a Bakugan trap for size reference.Bonus coloring sheet: If you made it this far down this lengthy post, you may print and enjoy some more coloring fun.
