From Janis: TA Japanese friend directed me to this wonderful website page. They’ve set up a ton of free coloring pages, with space left for a child (or adult!) to write a message, particularly to those helping us get through this crisis.

Or, in the site’s own words: “Thank you to the people who work at the hospital, those who work at delivery and supermarkets, family members, people around you, and various people. This is a thank you message that makes you feel a little gentler than usual.”

* Make sure you have Google translate or another translation program enabled if you don’t read Japanese! On my computer, it pops up when I load the page with a choice of languages. Or, just go with it and don’t worry – click on any picture to download, or use the zip file we’re providing here.

You can also download coloring pages from the original site.
