Helping Your Two Year Old Develop Fine Motor Skills

Your two-year-old may have just started enthusiastically running; jumping and even saying “No!” to just about every question you pose. While running and jumping are good for their development it is also important to recognize the need for fine motor skill development. This is especially true for young boys who tend to have difficulty sitting […]

Having Fun with Your Child While Teaching Motor Skills

Parenting comes with lots of responsibility and worry so why not take some time to have fun with your child? If you are the parent of a young child you can combine parenting and having fun with taking time to help your child develop motor skills. Motor skills become crucial in the preschool years as young children […]

Coloring Crafts for Older Elementary School Children

It can be as difficult if not more difficult for older elementary school children to find new ways to learn than younger ones. When the children are young you can use amusing games or crafts to entertain them. You mix fun with learning to try to find a balance that excites the children and helps […]

Coloring Crafts for Young Elementary School Children

Educating young elementary school children can be difficult and for a number of reasons. With the younger grades it can be difficult just to keep their attention for more than a few minutes. Young kids would rather be outside playing with their friends or watching a movie.The last thing on their list is to study […]

Fresh New Design is Here!

Our new look is now live. What do you think? Everything is still organized by category (look in the right-hand menu) or you can use the search tool to find something specific. Our “Click to Download” works a little differently now, but should download the PDF coloring page automatically in all browsers. Have a question […]

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before, but it finally fell from the sky and hit me on the head. Why not add interactive coloring games to the site? Ta dah! So now, in addition to more than 1300 printable coloring pages, we also have coloring pages to “color with your mouse.”  You’ll find them […]

A New Logo

One afternoon over the long Memorial Day weekend, I became obsessed with redesigning the FreeKidsColoring logo. I don’t know if this one is better (it’s certainly more colorful!) but I had fun creating it .. and so there you have it. A new logo for this old site. (Sounds like a television show, doesn’t it?)

Coloring Competitions for Preschoolers

Preschoolers are a difficult group to educate and train. As a teacher or parent your role is to instill positive habits and information in the minds of your students. However, preschoolers are a different sort of student. They have very short attention spans and they seem only interested in a couple of things. Preschoolers enjoy […]

Coloring With Your Preschooler

Preschoolers are difficult to handle and mostly because they are so limited in terms of their activities. Preschoolers can eat, sleep, poop, and watch movies. They are good at getting into fights and crying. If preschoolers weren’t so cute they probably wouldn’t have too many good points. As a parent you are probably looking for […]

Coloring Craft Gift Cards for Elementary School

It can be difficult for parents and teachers to come up with productive activities for their elementary school aged kids. Most kids would rather be outside or watching a favorite movie than inside doing classwork. If you have struggled to find great activities for your young child you are not alone. It is hard to […]

Coloring Crafts for Elementary School Children

One of the biggest challenges that teachers face when they teach children in elementary school is to make learning fun and enjoyable. Although we start to treat elementary school children like adults they are really just little children. They would rather play outside with their friends or watch a movie than focus on homework. Even […]

Fun Coloring Crafts for Elementary School Kids

Even the most studious of children in elementary school need a break to do something fun. It is difficult to remember just how difficult it was to be a young student. You probably were always thinking about how hard it was to sit inside when you could be outside playing on the playground. It is […]

Holiday Coloring Crafts for Elementary School

As an elementary school teacher, or as the parent of an elementary school child, it can be difficult to find fun activities all year round. Kids grow tired of just studying all the time.

Site’s Been Rearranged

I’ve rearranged the site a bit, but hopefully it is still as easy to use (or maybe easier?) The coloring pages now each have their own individual pages, and I’ve added a LARGE “Click to Download” button so it should be crystal clear how to get the coloring page PDF.   If anything is ambiguous or confusing, […]

Find the Plants in the Alphabet Coloring Pages

A few weeks ago I got a letter from Becky about the Plant and Animal Alphabet pages that really touched me. If you haven’t yet seen those pages, they are letters of the alphabet intricately filled with animals and plants that start with each letter. I loved them, and was happy to learn that they filled […]

Print and Color Bookmarks

I’ve added something new today: print, color, and cut bookmarks. So far, there’s one for St. Patrick’s Day and one for Christmas. I’ll be fooling around with the format a bit before adding some more, because I’m not quite happy with them yet. What do you think?
