I recently posted a bunch of printable pdf coloring pages for kids on the main mister-toad website. They were easy and fun to make. Here is how I did it:
I start with a photo of some charismatic animal, usually an amphibian, reptile or insect. For example, this picture of a calling make gray treefrog is one of my favorites.
I opened it up in photoshop elements, and made an outline in a separate layer. Then I deleted the background, so just the outline was left.
I resized the outline, and saved it as a pdf.
Then just print, and it is ready to color! Here is the coloring page transformed into a “fire-fighting tree frog”!
Here is one showing a cottonmouth snake:
And here is another showing a larval tiger salamander:
