To change the text that is already there, simply select it by double clicking on your mouse, highlight the text and type in your own text. Click out of the blue text box to see your final result.
If your text is too long, you can resize it by dragging the corners of the blue text box.
Changing font type and size
Once you highlight the text, your text options will show up on the top with the name of the current font, it’s size, color, etc. Simply change these settings to what you want.

Here is a bonus tip for you!
You can add more graphics such as stars, hearts, and rainbows straight in Canva. On the left hand side menu, click on ELEMENTS. Search for what you want and click on the three lines next to the search bar to filter only FREE elements. The ones with the yellow crown will cost you $1. If you want to use them for free, I recommend doing the 30-day Pro Canva trial. This will allow you personal use of all the yellow crown elements. If you want to use these elements for commercial use you have to follow Canva’s licensing.
Printing Your Coloring Pages
If you are just using it around the house, you can simply print these coloring pages on copy paper.
