My son isn’t quite old enough to color, but he already won’t sit still during church, so I found this awesome family history coloring book and turned it into a reusable dry erase book for him to use someday. The best part is that it cost less than $3 to make!
I found this Family History Coloring Book at Deseret Book for 85 cents. You can also purchase them from any LDS Distribution Center or online. If you order online you can get them in any of these languages:

Once I had my book, I removed the staples and used my paper trimmer to cut right down the center fold line. I discarded the back cover, so there were a total of 11 pages (front cover + 10 coloring pages).
I then placed each page inside a laminating pouch and ran it through my laminator. I use the 5 mil pouches because they are more durable than the 3 mil ones. If you print the pages yourself, you will need to place 2 pages back-to-back inside each laminating pouch.
To finish off the book I just used a 3-hole-punch and 3 keyrings to bind it together. I plan to use dry erase crayons with mine because they are less messy and won’t dry out like markers.
Also for those of you who are LDS, there is a Book of Mormon coloring book available from Deseret Book, the distribution center, or free download.
