This year we have developed a new Caribbean coloringbook with illustrations and beautiful coloring pages about Curacaos nature and the environment.

Those lessons cover the subjects of litter,waste, plastic, and recycling as well as mosquito prevention, native trees, climate change and Curaçao’scoral reef. We always adapt our lessons to the specific wishes and challenges of each school we visit,and our activities and colorful teaching materials are especially appreciated by students in special needseducation as they are very active and creative.”
