Nature Coloring Pages and Sheets for Kids and Adults

Updated on November 17, 2014

Nature Coloring Pages and Pictures

Waterfall, volcano, sea life, earthquake, animals, birds, rainforest, weather and more nature coloring pages for all age groups and skill abilities.

What better way to learn about nature than with fun color pages and pictures? I've also thrown in some interesting nature facts to make this more educational.

These free, printable nature coloring pages can be used for fun or as part of a nature or science lesson plan.

Crayons are best for younger ones, while older ones may prefer coloring pencils or paints.

Beautiful Trees

Trees always remind me of nature. I really enjoy visiting a national park just to be among these majestic creations. Besides being pretty to look at or fun to climb, trees are very important to the planet.

They are wondering at providing shade from the sun and also act as homes to certain wildlife. They also help to keep the air clean by absorbing carbon monoxide. Additionally, some provide food for both people and other animals.

This coloring book is also educational as it teaches about different trees and leaves.

 

The world's biggest tree is the General Sherman Tree.

Isn't this magnificent? I love how huge it is. It's located in Sequoia National Park in the state of California. It's over 270 feet high!

I would not want to be here when this happens! The world's largest active volcano is located in the state of Hawaii. It's estimated that there are about 1,900 active volcanoes located in different areas of the world.Author Unknown.

Beautiful Lake

Doesn't this seem so peaceful? I always have a nice time when my family and I go to the lake. Although most lakes are freshwater, there are some that are filled with saltwater.

The country with the most amounts of lakes is Canada. However, Finland is known as the Land of a Thousand Lakes.

      We stayed in Yosemite during the millennium holidays and one of the big waterfalles had frozen, an amazing sight. The noise was deafening as it began to thaw and ice chuncks the size of houses came crashing to the rocks,
