Mother’s Day activity sheet

Here’s the Mother’s Day activity sheet for the Hilton Chicago/Indian Lakes in beautiful Bloomingdale, IL. It was a big hit with the kids, and the grown-ups, too — so much so that they ran out of copies to hand out. Note to self: bigger print run for next year.

The hotel’s nicer restaurant, Shiraz On The Water, will be doing a big menu change in a couple of weeks, for which they will be getting all new kids’ menus, too. More on that when it happens.

The hotel also has a Father’s Day brunch coming up on whatever Sunday Father’s day is. And guess who’s doing the activity sheet for that?

I’ll try to have it up before the holiday this time, so the kids at home can print it and color it for their own dads.

Try to imagine your surprise that I belong to Yahoo!’s Group Of The Living Dead.

Jan Kozlowski is a fellow group member, writer, and compulsive creative type. Over at her site, she’s posted two new bits of zombie fun: a crossword puzzle and a word search.

Check ’em out here.

World’s Greatest Kids’ Menus

All right!

It took some finagling, but this is worth it. Download the .pdf, print it up and take this super-awesome kids’ menu and activity sheet to your next boring meeting. It’s got something for everybody, including a maze, word find, and lots of tasty food. The menu is designed for 11″ x 17″ paper, though it’ll fit on 8.5″ x 11″.

I’ll be starting the Mother’s Day edition early next week and the one for Shiraz On The Water once we get the new menu confirmed.

Have fun!

Never mind how I did it, but I managed to talk the Food & Beverage Manager over at the Hilton Chicago Indian Lakes Resort into letting me redesign all their kids’ menus. The gig also includes special event menus and activity sheets, like this one for Easter. Print and enjoy!

(This goofy blog program won’t let me upload the other, super-awesome kids’ menu for Masters Clubhouse, the hotel’s breakfast and lunch restaurant. Something about 2MB is too much. !???! Time to dump this set-up for something else. Until that happens, I’ll figure out a way to post the other menu.)

Color by me.

Here’s some fun to take to daycare or (another) meeting about your company’s merger activity.

A 16-page coloring book!

All the art and subject text was created right here in the JMS Labs. The print at the bottom of the cover is Gorilla Milkshake, a free design font from the good people at
Blambot.

Here’s the important legal stuff:

Creative Commons License

That means you can:

— Give it to the kids!

— Put it on your Web site!

— Mix it into your own art!

All you need do is give me credit (via the attribution link imbedded in the legal stuff ) and let me know you’re using it for non-commercial purposes.

(If you WANT to use it for commercial purposes, drop me a line here and we’ll talk.)

Scroll all the way to the top or bottom of this post and click to get. You can print all the pages or just your favorites.

If you have access to a scanner, email some finished artwork and I’ll post it.

In the planning stage is a JMS Activity Book full of more coloring fun, connect-the-dots, word finds, and so on, with all with your favorite JMS characters: Avenge-O, Monkeys On An Elevator, Mr. Punch, Inter-Galactic Space Patrol, and more.

If the coloring book gets a good response (i.e., lots of downloads and good feedback), the activity book will be next.

Enjoy and tell your friends!

Free Coloring Book? Where?

If you think something’s missing, you’re right.

Earlier today, you might have seen a post for a free coloring book download. That got pulled until I get a better understanding of how Creative Commons licensing works.

Once that’s straight in my head, I’ll make the necessary updates and repost. Should be another day or two.

Thanks for standing-by. The coloring book is worth it.
