Microscope roll tape colouring

Inspired by our historic microscope cell images we create some very easy colouring doodle patterns -why not have a go yourself!

You will need

  • Paper
  • Colouring pens, pencils or paint
  • Circular objects (such as sticky tape rolls, cup, plate)


  1. Simply draw round as many different circular shape objects on your paper
  2. Make sure you overlap them and use lots of different sizes
  3. Colour in the different sections to create an abstract pattern
