Fairy Tale Coloring Pages and Sheets

Updated on September 13, 2014

Fairy Tales Coloring Pages

Enjoy free fairy tale coloring pages including The Pied Piper, Hansel and Gretel, Alice in Wonderland and Jack and the Beanstock.

I have even more sheets from such greats as the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen.

Enjoy some music while visiting and if you're interested in some books, I have some of those as well. Grab your favorite crayons and pencils and relax and have some fun.

Hansel and Gretel Coloring Page

The origins of this story is from Germany. It is known as a story put forth by the Grimm Brothers. Although a dark story, it does have a happy ending.

Pied Piper Picture

Many historians believe that this story is based on an actual event. A man came to the city of Hamelin with a flute and led them out of the city. No one knows what actually happened to children or even why they were led away.

      I had to see this one again, fairy tales are my favorite subject... By the way, you have an illustration from Little Red Riding Hood signed by KG, marked as 'unknown artist'. It is a work by Kate Greenaway, one of the most famous illustrators ever. And if you need another source of coloring pages inspired by classic fairy tales, there is another address: http://mycoloringland.com/coloring-pages/wizard-of... I hope this helps:)

      I like most. Really enjoyed the vintage prints and coloring pages, takes me way back. My mother liked buying used books, so many of my books were printed pre 1960s and looked much like what you have here.

      What a fun lens - I have a hard time picking one, though I do rather love Beauty and the Beast. Blessed by a SquidAngel!
