Printable Coloring Pages for Kids
These pumpkin printables are pretty simple to prepare. Just print them on regular printer paper or cardstock, and you’re all set!
I like to print mine on cardstock, because I think crayons color smoother on cardstock than on printer paper.
You could also cut down some watercolor paper if your kids want to use markers or watercolor pencils. Watercolor paper will help prevent the colors from bleeding.
USING COLORING PAGES IN YOUR PRESCHOOL CLASSROOM
If you’re a preschool mom or teacher, you know that coloring pages can be a lifesaver on days when kids are just too wiggly to sit still for a story.
But did you know that there are plenty of other ways to use coloring pages in your classroom? Here are a few ideas:
• Use coloring pages as part of a theme. For example, if you’re doing a unit on pumpkins, you can print out coloring pages like the ones featured in this post and use them to decorate your classroom. Kids will love being surrounded by their artwork!
• Laminate completed coloring pages and use them as playdough mats. Have kids fill in the outlines with playdough to build seasonal pictures.
• Let kids color their own name tags or desk plates. This is a great way to help kids feel ownership over their space and belongings.
Whatever way you choose to use them, preschoolers are sure to love these free printable coloring pages!
