Example of Using Microsoft Excel to "Color"

An interesting, no-frills, no-fuss leisure activity for students who enjoy creating "pictures" on the computer.  This student discovered on her own how to use Microsoft Excel with the computer mouse to "color."  I created a template for her to use each time, with the names of fellow students and her teachers' names, but she simply erases the names and colors as she wishes.

If you want to add an educational twist, you can use the same idea to write alphabet letters and numbers.

Since so many families have the Microsoft Office suite on their personal computers this can be an option for leisure computer activities at home.
