My kids love to color simple line drawings of animals. I often draw animal outlines for them using a pen and paper. But I have also found a tremendous number of great coloring pages online. Some of my favorites include coloring pages from the
Virginia Herpetological Society,
and the Melbourne Museum. After printing many of these pages, I thought it would be fun to make printable coloring pages of our own. My kids and I went through my photos, and they picked out their favorites. I opened the photos in photoshop elements and created simple outlines of the animals. Then we printed the pages and had fun coloring!
I've put a few of the coloring pages below. You are welcome to print them yourself and use them with your kids or in classrooms. Feel free to share the link to this page with other people. But please don't repost my coloring pages on other websites. And if you would like to use these images in a presentation, be sure to credit me with the images. If you have any questions about these images, or would like to use them for purposes not mentioned above, please contact me, Mike Benard, via email: mfbenard (at) gmail com.
