Bear Cub In The Back Yard
Nature Coloring Books for Kids and Adults
There are many animals that live in or visit backyards. Backyard Nature Coloring Books have coloring pages that are inspired by nature. My backyard and garden are a place for amazing animal friends, and trees for some to live in, with gardens and flowers, and the forest all around.
It is neat that we can create our own decorative pictures from nature's awesome scenes. The back yard coloring books have beautiful mammals, baby birds in the nest, deer, chipmunks, squirrels, bunnies and many favorite trees and flowers in full bloom in gardens. There are detailed line drawings in these coloring pages of animals and nature!
I have featured the best nature coloring books for children, that are some of the top rated activity books for adults and seniors. Color therapy is a relaxing way to pass some time with my elderly mother doing something creative.
It is always so much fun to color with children who are learning about the animals and nature that are around us. Kids are fun to color with because they do not need to color within the lines with their crayons or colored pencils. Children can be so creative with color while they work off some stress and begin to relax while doing a fun activity.
Enjoy the photos of some of the wild animals that visit the back year.

Backyard Nature and Animals Activity Book
This nature book has detailed line drawings of birds and animals in nature right in the backyard scenes. Coloring pictures of nature gives me the feeling of being outdoors. But, don't just take my word for it, read the reviews on Amazon. It has a 4 1/2 Star Rating!
One of my favorite places to be is in the yard, its four acres and is like being in a small park out in the middle of the wilderness. We have birds and wild animals coming to visit often and to eat. I spend a lot of time enjoying animals and nature in the backyard sitting on the porch or by the fire pit.
Coloring spring, summer and fall animals and nature coloring pages in the cold winter months is a great indoor activity for children to imagine being outdoors.

I Loved Discovering Nature In the Backyard As A Child
When I was growing up, a walk in the woods was just a step away from our backyard, so there was plenty of wildlife to discover and enjoy and we never knew what would be coming through our yard next. Maybe that is why I love the Backyard Nature Coloring Book so much. It reminds me of creatures I truly love.
Since I returned home to care for my Mom, I have been rediscovering what a joy it is to be able to be in the yard with the visiting critters of the forest.

In Full Bloom: A Close-Up Coloring Book
In Full Bloom: A Close-Up Coloring Book For Ages 8 and up! 32 coloring pages of flowers. Some of the most beautiful gifts that nature has given us are colorful flowers. I love flowers, they have a way of making me feel better when I see them blooming and displaying their varying colorful arrays.
Bright and muted colors and pastels seem to be the colors I like to use for coloring in line drawings of flowers. I prefer colored pencils over crayons.
I look forward to the first flowers in bloom every spring. All through the growing season there is an array of colors as different plants show off their colors.
Flowers are a beautiful subject for coloring artists to meditate on while coloring pages and blowing off some steam. The faster I color, the more stress I release from the day, and soon I realize that I am relaxed and the strokes I take have slowed down. You see, coloring really is therapy for me.
Creating is a fun activity for senior citizens, like my dear Mom, who has Alzheimer's disease.

I Love Coloring Deer Pages
The Whitetail Deer has a thick tail that is white on the underside, they use it as a flag to warn other deer when they sense danger. We had deer coming into the backyard all the time.
Did you know that the Whitetail is the largest deer in North America? Whitetails like to live in open bushy areas, in forests, and swamps. They like to browse about in nature as they eat twigs, herbs, grass, shrubs, acorns, and fungi. These beautiful animals will also eat plants in orchards, vegetable gardens, farm fields, and even the flowers in yards near peoples' yards.
Deer are creatures of habit and will return once they find a food source. They can actually do some damage to plants and trees on properties when finding food is tough pickings during snow covered months or like the easy picking of flower gardens and vegetable gardens as their buffet. Many people supply hay for deer to eat in winter.
Deer are animals of habit and will return once they find a food source in someone's backyard.

I Love Friendly Little Animals
Chipmunks are so cute, and they will warm up to humans like little critter friends sometimes do. They seem to be busy eating or gathering scraps of food to haul to their homes or storage areas all year. You can color pictures of these animals and nature in your own backyard.

Smokey Bear Coloring Page
My Hero is Smokey Bear
I grew up in the country and learned a lot of tips about fire safety from watching Smokey Bear on television. I took a photo of a sign and made it into a Smokey Bear free coloring page.
To this day, I still hope that one day, Smokey Bear will come walking out of the woods and give me a bear hug for being careful to be watchful when burning anything and for putting fires out. Its good to have water handy for fire safety.
I grew up in northern Minnesota and saw several bears in our back yard. One time my Mom was frying bacon for breakfast, and a bear came right up to the back door sniffing. My Dad was able to scare the bear away by yelling at it to get away.
It is smart to keep food and garbage safely put away, so that bears do not think they can get a free meal from you when they are hungry.

On A Side Note
Color crayons, colored pencils and even paints are great tools to have when its a rainy day. We do not need a coloring book but all we do need is a plain sheet of paper to draw on and add some colors as we create something original and unique. That is what I did much of the time when I was a child because I liked drawing free hand.
When I got older I started using different paint mediums to color with, craypas, pastels and even charcoal. It is fun to experiment and learn to control colors, shading and shapes.
