Creating a Waldorf Coloring Pad September 26, 2012 by Waldorf Connection Blog Materials: newspaper, a brown grocery bag, scissors, and tape. I used clear packing tape, you can use wide masking tape as well. Use a pretty thick section or an entire newspaper for the pad. Step 1) Cut down the side of the bag and then cut out the bottom until you have a flat sheet. Step 2) Lay the newspaper on the brown paper. Put any writing or logos facing up so when it is wrapped they won’t be visible. Step 3) Wrap like a present making sure the bottom surface is smooth. Step 4) Tape across the back on 4 sides Now you have a wonderful surface for drawing and coloring. Easy!
