Greetings, dear readers. Recently, I was trying to find a Halloween craft to do with my son. I found all sorts of wonderful ideas on Pinterest, but I lacked the materials for all of them. If I had the right materials, they were the wrong color or quantity. I was unable to go to the store to buy what I needed, whether because of my kids’ nap times, my lack of a driver’s license in this country, or because we were low on money. Therefore, I kept searching the internet for something free and fun. Then I found the perfect thing: coloring pages!
Yes, coloring pages. It’s really that simple. After a quick Google search I found a wealth of these websites that provided free coloring pages, yours to print as you like. There were TV & movie characters, seasons, holidays, animals, the alphabet, pretty much anything you can think of that you’d want your kids to color. So I printed some Halloween ones up for Jude and I spent some time coloring with him in his fort that we’d built earlier in the day. He loved it and so did I. It gave us time together, it gave him time to be creative, and it gave us something Halloween themed to enjoy. Win, win, and win.
Here are the five best websites that I found for a variety of free printable coloring pages:
