Momi - a free coloring paperdoll

I made a free Momi coloring paper doll for ocean loving keiki (children) or anyone who is kid at heart :D

Momi mean "pearl" in Hawaiian. In natural world pearls are formed and become more "pure" in oysters in response to an irritant. I think of this as us becoming more pure and more like Jesus, in response to our world experiences in our Father's hands with His love. Matthew 13:45-46 talks about the story of "pearl".

I hope you are all well and healthy during this difficult time of Covid-19.

Honu_free coloring pages

I made free coloring pages of honu, for your keiki, as we have seen so many honu, Hawaiian green sea turtles, lately.
During past three months of stay-at-home, I had more time to practice my Hawaiian with online course, so I also added a Hawaiian number sheet. I hope your keiki will enjoy them.

Aloha e malama kekahi i kekahi,  love and take care of one another.
Live aloha, speak aloha and share aloha.

orchids_free coloring page

Happy National Orchid Day was this week.
Orchid is Big Island's island flower - we are calld 'Orchid Isle'. When you go to the east side of Big Island (wet side), there are several National Parks: Volcani National Park, Hawai'i Tropical Botanical Garden and Akatsuka Orchid Garden, where you can view so many different kinds of orchids.
Among many kinds, I chose my favorite orchid, Phalaenopsis, to illustrate; it has rounded cute petals with so many sweet pastel colors. I hope you enjoy coloring it. The photo is taken in our yard:)
Aloha and take good care, Yuko

plumeria_ free coloring page

Due to the spread of covid-19, many residence stay and work from home since last week in Hawai'i. I pray everyone is healthy and safe. As I see many sad news each day, I pray and wonder what I can do besides praying...and thought about making flower coloring pages for others to download and color at home. It might be not much, but it might offer an activity to stay connected to the Words, while coloring and praying. Today's flower is plumeria...I hope all of you stay well.
Me ke aloha pumehana (with much love), Yuko
