Under the Sea Coloring Page 1

This first coloring page features one of the largest animals in the ocean.

Not the blue whale, but the great white shark!

This shark reminds me of the reformed, happy sharks from “Finding Dory,” peacefully living among all the other sea animals…and trying not to munch on any of the beautiful fish.

No dangerous predator lurking among these ocean animals. 

Your child will find peaceful jellyfish, adorable sea horses, and even a little turtle!

As an added activity while your child or student is coloring, consider asking them if they know any of the names of the oceans.

Where could these marine animals be located? The Atlantic Ocean? The Pacific Ocean?

Pull out a globe or map and let the child guess or imagine where they could be.

The sea life in this coloring sheet is so diverse!

Ask your child if they know what that large creature in the middle is – the o-o-octopus!

See if she can count all 8 legs. Then ask her if an octopus has 8 legs, how many sides do you think an octagon has?

And make sure your child notices all the hidden marine life nestled into the ocean floor.

What is camouflaged and blended into the coral?

Your kids might think this toothy creature is a shark, but it is actually an orca.

Why are orcas called killer whales?

According to wales.org, they earned this name from ancient sailors who saw their predatory nature as they took down large whales, sharks, and other ocean creatures. 

People today have even seen that orcas have the ability to take down a great white shark!

Yes, these Under the Sea coloring sheets have quite a few sharks. 

Maybe this shark is delighted to have found a fish snack or maybe this reformed shark is meeting some friends.

What does your kid think?

I had to add in a mermaid coloring page for a little whimsical fun!

Are there really mermaids in the ocean? My kids would definitely like to think so!

And with so little of the ocean being explored, who’s to say that they might not be out there?

Every kid loves a dolphin!

These amazing creatures are known to be so friendly and playful, that people can swim with them! 

A fun fact to point out is that dolphins use echo sounders or echo location to explore their environment.

As your child pulls out his crayons or colored pencils to work on this sheet, encourage him to take the time to color each piece of coral a different color.

It will really show a more accurate and beautiful picture of what a real coral reef looks like!

This unique picture showcases what a beautiful place the ocean floor is!

If is full of so much diverse and colorful life!

Jellyfish are a favorite of many kids. These strange, hovering, brainless creatures are a weird mix of adorable and scary.
