35 Cute Animal Coloring Pages: Printable and Free!
Need some cute animal coloring pages for your kids?
And it wouldn’t hurt if they were free and easy to download and print right now?
I have to tell you that free printable coloring pages were one of my main “go-to” things when I needed to keep my girls busy with a screen-free activity,
The only thing that could hold me back was my printer cartridge.
My youngest child still loves coloring, so I decided to pay it forward and add my own printable animal coloring pages to the moms searching the internet for a little peace and quiet.
They are such a fun way for children of all ages to use their favorite colors and enjoy the relaxing, calming effects of coloring.
Fun Ways To Use These Cute Animal Coloring Pages!
1. Dot markers are so much for kids of all ages!
It somehow combines a kid’s love of pushing buttons, markers, and coloring.
My kids loved using them, but I would recommend a high-quality washable brand…for obvious reasons.
These are the ones I love and you can get them on Amazon!
2. Gel Pens are a very close second!
They come in so many colors and are a blast to color with – especially when you’re coloring adorable baby animals!
Of course, you want to save these for older children who are unlikely to color your walls with them.
We got a huge pack of them from Five Below, but you can definitely grab a pack from Amazon too!
Check out this pack on Amazon – it’s very close to what we have.
3. Mixed Media for the win!
Mixed media is just a fancy term for using different things to create art. It is so simple to do with kids and a fun activity to take these cute coloring pages to the next level.
Give your kids regular household things like toothpicks, cotton balls, pieces of sponge, washable paint, small pieces of fabric, and let them create!
