Ah summer… and colouring. Two of our favourite things rolled into one! Our colouring is aimed at children rather than adults, although grown-ups are welcome to do it too, of course. After all, studies have shown that simply colouring in a picture is good for your mental health – a relaxing pastime no matter what age you are.
We’ve put all our summer colouring faves together below, so they’re easy for you to scroll through. We hope you enjoy them. x
It’s miserable being in the middle of a pandemic, but we’ve put together these printables which you might find useful while the world tries to cope with the coronavirus crisis. They’re meant to be light-hearted and to stop children feeling too anxious.
Has your child been feeling anxious about the pandemic? An award for bravery might help. It won’t take fear away of course, but it could help your little one feel proud of the way he or she is coping. A little bit of praise and acknowledgement is something we all need from time to time.
Covid Christmas Letters
Finally, if you want to print a magical Father Christmas letter to say well done for coping so well with Covid restrictions, you can find one here.
Are you looking to show your support for the NHS or other key workers? Great! It’s lovely to see rainbows popping up in windows all over the UK, appreciating just how precious all our health workers are. Here’s our little contribution – a collection of rainbow posters for children to print and colour in:
By the way, we think it’s really nice of you to think of others during this difficult time. Your kindness is far more magical than anything we do on this site.
If you have a key worker among your friends or family, why not colour in a poster just for them? We’ve tried to include as many as we could think of, and there’s one you can fill in yourself if we’ve missed someone.
Looking for plain rainbow colouring without any writing? These are two of our favourites?
And here are two final posters which are key to that all-important message to stay home if you can:
For anyone looking for more lovely summery resources, here are a few of our favourites from around the internet:
Printable Masks – This site has a great collection of masks to keep the kids entertained this summer, or indeed at any other time of year.
Hidden Pictures – This selection of charming pictures with things hidden all over them is great for keeping children busy over the summer. Like hide-and-seek on the page! They can also be coloured in for extra fun.
With Christmas over and the new year at the starting block, we thought we’d list a few of our favourite printables for January. Some are new and some are old favourites but our site is getting so big that we thought a little list might help make sure there’s no mid-winter magic you’ve missed.
Hello! As you’ll know if you’re a regular visitor to this site, we add new printable colouring pages whenever we can. Here are our latest offerings, many of which have been created with the upcoming season of autumn in mind. We hope you find them useful and that if your children are heading back to school this September, they have a great term.
