How to make kids excited about coloring the cardboard? Allot each side of the cardboard to a particular color and let your kids find the same color and scribble.

Then you let the kid scribble each color overlapping other to discover a new color. Appreciate your kid with a chocolate or a hug when the activity is complete.
