Kids' Coloring Contest
Our coloring contests are temporarily suspended due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19. We look forward to the time we can start these back up. In the meantime, enjoy our photo collages from coloring contests in the past!
Encourage the little ones in your life to participate in our monthly Coloring Contests, featuring a different bird each month! Pick up your contest pages and return them to us by the end of the month. On or around the 1st of the following month, we hold a random drawing to select a winner of a goody bag of prizes from our store. After the winner is drawn, we feature all submissions on our Facebook page, and here on our website.
