Words by Anna White · Illustrations by Elly Malone

In times of crisis, we tend to return to old favorites, the movies we watched countless times while home sick from school, or sleeping-bagged on a friend's floor at long-ago slumber parties. Elly Malone has created a set of coloring pages to help capture that comforting nostalgia, featuring characters from her favorite 90s and early 2000s movies. Put idle hands to work while reminiscing on your favorite feel-good films. Best paired with popcorn and a movie marathon!

We recommend printing these out pages out so you can do some arts and crafts by using good old-fashioned scissors and glue. When you're done, send a photo or a scan of your artwork to or post it on Instagram and tag us @nearnessproject. We'll post a gallery of the submissions on our homepage in a week's time. You can check out last week's submissions here. Happy collaging!
