Environmental Coloring Book Goes Online
The NAHB Women’s Council has found a new interactive home for NAHB’s “Homes of Our Own” educational coloring book; click here.
Whether in school, at home or at the library, all children with Web access can now participate in “Homes of Our Own,” to learn the home building process and discover how builders protect the environment.
Officially debuting at the International Builders' Show, the online coloring book features the inventive, informative drawings of the original “Homes of Our Own” book, which children can color online using a palette of colors and brushes. Innovative new features allow children to e-mail their drawings to friends and family, print their masterpieces and receive an official “Junior Home Builder” certificate online.
NAHB has developed additional online resources to help members and associations implement “Homes of Our Own” in their communities. Information posted online includes a resource kit with suggestions about using the online coloring book in your local community, information on ordering the “Homes of Our Own” companion video, tree-planting guides and a “Homes of Our Own” program script featuring a skit and tree-planting ceremony.
