‘Kids Coloring Challenge’ topic three and four


The Swatara Township Police Department is presenting a Kids Coloring Challenge to keep kids busy while they’re home from school.

The coloring challenge is open to children up to the age of 17. Children can choose to draw, color, paint or create a picture using any material they prefer.  Children can participate in as many of the challenges as they would like to. 

Kicking it old school with E.T. for the third Kids Coloring Challenge. The Swatara Police Department says this is a topic we should all keep in mind. “Whenever you are in a vehicle traveling somewhere always remember to wear your seat belt! Seat belts save lives!”

The third challenge is to draw a picture of yourself in a vehicle wearing a seat belt. Remember to include your car seat if you are still in one.  The second part is to draw E.T. somewhere in your picture. Parents, you may have to help with this part by showing your child a picture of E.T.

The fourth Kids Coloring Challenge might have you torn, Swatara police are asking kids to pick either Police K-9 J.T. (wearing the police harness) or Police K-9 Kix (wearing just the collar) and draw them! They could be playing ball, running, jumping over a fence, barking or just plain laying down or sitting. They say,”think of ways that your pet stays active and healthy., do you take your dog for walks? Play frisbee? How about that hamster, does he like the hamster ball?”

Be sure to include the dog’s name in the picture somewhere. They are both very cool dogs who help the police officers out a lot with doing their job.
