This year during National Craft Month, Epson is encouraging families to flex their creative muscles with personalized projects the whole family can enjoy.
“Crafting can drive family bonding by redirecting kids and adults away from on-screen activities to unleash their inner creativity through DIY projects,” said Haol Yao, product manager, Consumer Imaging, Epson America. “From photo collage art to changing up room décor to seasonal projects and activities, Epson’s Expression printers offer a suite of creative tools that spark new ideas for easy at-home crafts to keep family imaginations high and screen time low.”

Custom Coloring Books: Tune into childhood nostalgia by designing and building your own coloring book using family photos or personal drawings.

Or download Epson’s custom coloring pages here. Grab colored pencils, markers or crayons to settle down for an afternoon of coloring special family moments with the kids. Share the creative outcome with family near and far by mailing or scanning a copy of the finished coloring page to grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins who make a cameo in the photo.
DIY Photo Recipe Cards: Shelter in place has brought out the chefs in every household. Whether you are obsessed with the viral baked feta pasta or teaching the kids family recipes, your camera roll is sure to be full of snaps of favorite dishes. Turn those photos into inspirational recipe cards. A dedicated photo printer, like the Expression Photo XP-8600 Small-in-One printer, delivers vibrant, bright prints to make your recipe cards look professional. Have each member of the family choose a photo of their favorite dish, print the image on a 5″x7″ card, then write the recipe on the back for an extra personal touch. Organize the cards by category, such as main dishes, side dishes and dessert, and fasten with a ring, card stand or magnet so the whole family can tackle a recipe while cooking in the kitchen together.
