For all of the holidays and seasons I like to print some fun, festive coloring pages for my kids. However, I don’t just print any old coloring page; I really look for high-quality coloring pages that have a lot of fun elements to color. I always watch for images that have clear lines and engaging things to color.
Then, I keep the stack of that holiday/season’s coloring pages in or near the kitchen and we pull them out for my kids to color whenever I’m preparing meals or whenever they feel like coloring During homeschool time I let my kids pick pages from the stack if they complete their projects/assignments early and are waiting for the other kids to move to the next project. Any coloring pages that aren’t used are put in my filing cabinet to be stored until next year.
So, I thought it would be really fun to start sharing all of the best coloring pages that I’ve found with all of you, too! Then it will be super easy to find great coloring pages for your kids each holiday/season!
Today I’m featuring the best Independence Day coloring pages I’ve found since the 4th of July is right around the corner:
