February Coloring Contest – Fear & Sunshine: ZomBeanified

Deadline: Sunday, February 26th, 2023 by 3pm CST

Oh no!

The crew from Darksmith Manor in the Fear & Sunshine books have turned to ZomBeans!

Oh, well. Might as well make the best of the situation and color them up!

Submission Categories:
Since these books are for all ages, let’s make categories for everyone. And for the adult entries, we’ll break it up by what you use to color your page. Here are the groups from which we’ll choose our winners:

• 5 years old and under
• 6 to 8
• 9 to 12
• 13 to 17
• 18+ – Colored Pencil
• 18+ – Crayon
• 18+ – Marker
• 18+ – Other/Mixed Media
• 65+ – This one is a super cool double bonus option so participants 65+ would be eligible to win both in one of the 18+ subcategories or the general 65+ category.
• Plus one randomly selected Lucky Duck winner which anyone could win

Want to win the best prizes? Better invite your friends!
The monthly prizes will get better based on how many participants among all categories enter the contest. Can we unlock over $500 worth of rewards???

1 to 19 entries – Button Pack
20 to 49 entries – Mystery Stickers
50 to 149 entries – Crayons, Colored Pencils, and a Studio Moonfall coloring book (your choice!)
150 or more entries – $25 Studio Moonfall Gift Card!!!

For these prizes, they stack as we get more participants. So, if we get 150 entries, one person from each of the age groups/categories will recieve all the goodies – A Button pack, Mystery Sticker pack, Crayons, Colored Pencils, a Coloring Book, plus a $25 Studio Gift Card. Ten winners for all these stuff!

Winners will be contacted, initially by text message, on February 26th, 2023, around 7pm CST.

You’ll have until Sunday, March 26th, 2023 at 3pm CST to stop by Studio Moonfall to claim your prize. However, if we reach the Studio Moonfall Gift Card tier, I can set that up by your email.

Note: I’m totally guessing on these submission entry levels so this may change for the next contest.

Each participant only gets one entry but if you color one and submit it, then color another page that you think is waaaaay better, we can replace your first entry.

For our February “Fear & Sunshine ZomBeanification” Coloring Contest, it begins NOW and the deadline to submit your entry February 26th, 2023 by 3pm CST.
To submit yours, drop off your coloring page entry at Studio Moonfall – 5031 7th Ave. Kenosha, WI. You can find up to date store hours at and for Mystery Hours on Tuesdays, check the Facebook page –
If you stop by while the shop is closed, you can slide your entry into the mail slot on the door.

Be sure to include the following on the back of your coloring page:
• Name
• Phone Number
• Email
• Age Group/Category

You can also mail your entry to:
Studio Moonfall
5031 7th Ave.
Kenosha, WI 53140

Make sure to give mail entries enough time to reach us by the deadline.

I look forward to seeing your masterpieces!
