Bright Futures at Georgetown University

Activity Book

(also available in Spanish)

Color With Me!


The Bright Futures Activity Book is a great way to teach your young child about health and safety. Set aside some special time, pick up a few crayons and markers, and get ready to have fun! As you go through the book together, color, draw, fill in the blanks, tell stories, and talk about staying healthy and being safe. Working together will provide you and your child with an opportunity to share ideas and experiences about nutrition, fitness, self-expression, safety, and oral health.

And if you look very carefully, you'll discover a Bright Futures sun on each page. See how many you and your child can find.

Feel free to print pages from the book, copy them, and share them with friends and relatives. Proudly display your child's accomplishments at home, school, or work. Most of all, have a good time!

Bright Futures Is Everybody's Business-- Health Promotion Works

Ensuring that children are healthy and safe requires the participation of family members, health professionals, and other community members. To strengthen these relationships, several of the activities in the Bright Futures Activity Book have been created for sharing with family and community members such as your child's grandparent, doctor, dentist, or teacher.

Bright Futures is based on the principle that the health and safety of our children depends on the wellness of families and communities. The Bright Futures Activity Book is designed to increase your child's understanding and appreciation of good health and to lay a foundation for lifelong healthy habits.

The content of the Bright Futures Activity Book is based on Bright Futures: Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children, and Adolescents.
