Free Coloring Pages for Children

Updated on July 5, 2012

If you are looking for a good way to keep your children entertained you are in luck! Coloring pages are a great way to keep your children entertained and can improve your children's artistic nature, however coloring books can be extremely expensive. If you do not want to buy expensive coloring books there are many websites that offer free printable coloring pages. On this page I have listed some of the best resources to find coloring pages online for free.

Websites that offer free printable coloring pages

http://www.educationalcoloringpages.com/

This website boasts offering 1000 free coloring pages. I love this website because it is extremely easy to navigate. The coloring pages are broken down into categories and then futhur broken down into sub-categories. All of the coloring pages on this page are high resolution so printing them on a full page will not be a problem. Also this website has coloring pages to suit boys and girls of all different ages with broad interests. Furthermore this website has coloring pages for holidays and different seasons.

http://www.crayola.com/free-coloring-pages.aspx

Crayola's website is another great resource for free printable coloring pages online. This website also has about 1000 free printouts available. There is no membership needed to print off Crayola and all of the printouts available are of high quality.

This website is one of my favorites because it is very easy to navigate. I also like this site because it offers coloring pages and it also offers free templates for tic-tac-toe, checkers, etc. If you choose you can allow your children to go on this website with minimal supervision to pick out their own coloring pages because Crayola is an extremely family friendly website.

Google.com

Simply googling the term "free coloring pages" in Google Images will turn up thousands of results. Unlike most coloring pages websites you can directly search which type of coloring pages you would like without having to search through categories.

While google can give you a plethora of free coloring pages to choose from this may also create a problem. By using google you may turn up spam pictures instead of coloring pages. Also, unlike a website specifically reserved for coloring pages which offer high resolution prints you will also stumble upon low resolution pages which are unfit for coloring. I suggest that you use a website specifically made for coloring pages if you do not want to weed out good results from the bad.

http://www.allkidsnetwork.com/color-by-numbers/

This website offers coloring pages, color by number, printable mazes and more! This website does not have a many print outs avaliable as some of the bigger websites however it does offer a variety of types of free print outs. My favorite category of print out on this site is by far the color by numbers section. The color by numbers gives younger children a chance to color inside the lines and a way to practice thier coloring skills.

      My boy doesn't really love coloring. He just scribble them. Maybe I should download some of these cartoon pictures and attract his attention.
