Educational Programs for Youth
Our first program is a colouring sheet that depicts the Afghanistan War Monument in Grande Prairie Alberta.
Colouring helps children develop a number of skills:
Hand eye coordination, motor skills, improved hand writing, self esteem, creativity, education and language are just a few.
Colouring also allows us to educate on complex topics like respect, sacrifice and service in a fun and non threatening way.
Paul Jamiol is the creator of the "Bikers are Animals" series of childrens books and he is the creator of the line art for our colouring page.
Our first use of this line art was on September 15th, 2018 at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch No 54's First Responders Day.
Grande Prairie Regional Tourism sponsored the crayons and A & W sponsored the prizes for the participants and age category winners.
