Despite the undeniable negatives of lockdown life, it’s been truly inspiring to see people come together and find innovative ways of supporting one another in what has to be one of the most testing times in recent memory. From Kennington locals doing a 12-hour doorstep-athon to Gollum’s live reading of ‘The Hobbit’ (yep, the whole thing), we thought we’d seen it all – until two young sisters from Nottingham decided to share their colouring book, that is.
Aged just nine and six, Polly and Hetty (so adorbs) created their fantastic ‘isolation creation’ colouring book and, with a little help from dad, printed and distributed 200 copies to friends, family and neighbours. After receiving a bigger response than they ever expected, they took it one step further.
Now Polly and Hetty have started their very own Isolation Creation Club, a place where parents and kids can find and share a whole heap of creative activities, including an online version of the original colouring book. The club lets parents download and print pictures from the book for their children to enjoy at home, as well as offering inspiration for other creative activities.
