We love Debra Gabel's coloring book, Color by Number Travel Across America! She makes creating beautifully colored art easy with her color key—plus, we love her cute stamp format. So we're pleased to be able to share a free coloring page with you today, and of course we chose the California stamp! It shows off the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge, as well as the state bird (the California Valley Quail) and the state flower (the California poppy). You can see the colored-in version below.
Download the color key and coloring page HERE. Enjoy an afternoon of fun and relaxation!
