May Coloring Pages and Sheets for Adults and Kids

Updated on May 18, 2014

May Coloring Pages

The beautiful nature of May as well as a variety of May holidays including Mother's Day, Cinco de Mayo and Memorial Day, along with lesser known holidays such as Nurses Day, National Train Train, Space Day and Mother Goose Day. Did you know that May is National Hamburger Month?

I've chosen coloring pages that would span from younger children to teens and even adults. It's a great way to get everyone in on the coloring fun. All of the pages here are printable and free.

Hope you enjoy this wonderful spring month along with all of these May coloring pages!

Gardening can be a fun family activity. Not only do plants and flowers live in a garden, so do many insects such as caterpillars, ladybugs and dragonflies. The next time you go outside, why not look to see how many different insects you can find?

Gardens are also a great way to grow your own food. Lots of fruits and vegetables can be planted that you can eat later on once they have grown.

Can you find the owl in this picture? Owls are nocturnal animals which means they come out at night. That's why they can be hard to find. They can turn their necks way more than humans, up to 270 degrees.

International Nurse Day - May 12 Holiday

Nurses have very important jobs and it's nice to have a day dedicated just to them. They help doctors with exams, give medication to patients, assist during surgery, draw blood and a variety of other tasks depending on what kind of a nurse the person is. Nurses are also very good at talking to patients and making them feel comfortable.

May 12 was chosen for International Nurse Day as it is the same day as Florence Nightingale's birthday.

Pick Strawberries Day - May 20 Holiday

Did you know that strawberries aren't berries at all, but part of the rose family? There are lots of great ways to eat strawberries. You cab mix them with other fruits to create a salad, make smoothies with them, dip them in chocolate or Cool Whip, turn them into jam or use them to make a dipping sauce. These are just a few ideas. Can you think of more/
