Fairy Coloring Book

Updated on December 1, 2014

Coloring Book Fun with Fairies

If you know someone who loves fairies, they will love a fairy coloring book. The hard part is going to be choosing just one!

There are many beautiful fairy coloring books available, for both adults and children. Coloring fairies is a hobby that could keep someone busy for quite a while. There is a big selection of these color books to choose from.

I find these fairy pictures to be quite enchanting! It is fun to imagine little fairies flitting around the house or in natural settings. I always liked to color pictures where I could set my imagination free, using lots of pretty colors and making up a story to go along with the scene.

You will find hours of coloring book fun here as I show you my favorite fairy coloring books!

Richard Doyle's Fairyland Coloring Book

This coloring book has beautiful and intricate drawings of fairies. Because of the lovely detail in the drawings, I decided to include this color book, even though some of the themes may be disturbing to children. It seems some of the fairies are rather mean to other creatures. For this reason, I decided to list this in the adult coloring books. It is helpful to keep in mind that the drawings were made before 1900, at a time when people viewed animal cruelty differently than we do today.

Coloring Memories

These coloring books remind me of lying on the floor at my grandmother's house, coloring with my sister. We would often walk to the dime store and buy whatever new color books they had in stock. If we were lucky, we also got a new box of crayons. If not, we could always use the shoe box full of colors Grandmother kept in her big pantry closet.

We would lie prone on her green, scratchy carpet, filling the blank spaces in with the prettiest colors we could find in either the new box or the old. In time the outline would begin springing to life, as we filled the illustrations with the beautiful hues from our crayons.

I don't know whatever happened to that old shoe box filled with decades of crayons. It was a treasure box, full of potential!

      I prefer to draw my own pictures ... but that's because I draw coloring pages!

      I loved coloring as a child, but have not done much since I'm grown. Much too busy writing and making greeting cards, cooking, crocheting, etc. There's always something that needs doing.

      I'm trying to remember what I colored as a child. That was quite a long time ago. I've done some sketching as an adult and drawing with colored pencils, but not coloring books. Looks like I'm missing all the fun.
