It’s been a while since we put together some of our favorite free printable summer coloring pages for our kids. With the weather fairly unbearable around the country right now, seemed like a good time to find some new printable coloring pages with summer themes — but we are only sharing the amazing ones. (No offense, clip art stealers.)
I know I’ve been finding them especially handy when thunderstorms threaten our pool plans lately, so I rounded up some favorites to share. They’re also smart to print out for summer travel, or those days it’s just too hot to get outside.
You’ll find these free summer coloring page printables for kids of all ages — from toddlers to picky teens — run the gamut of summer activities, from camping to road trips, succulent-cultivating to those summer creatures we love spotting. Oh, and ice cream. Of course.
Sharpen those pencils!
