Crayola Coloring Books

Crayola has published more than fifty coloring books to print and color. Some are easy, and others are more difficult. But with so many to choose from, you’re sure to discover a coloring book that you’ll love. Our favorites are Crayola’s Crayola Pets series, which includes detailed drawings of a German Shepherd and French Bulldog. For novice artists, Crayola has published several sheets that feature Disney characters, like Woody and Buzz from Toy Story and Elsa and Olaf from Frozen.

Disney

Speaking of Disney, you can browse a more extensive list of coloring books that feature your favorite Disney characters on Disney’s website: https://lol.disney.com/games/coloring-pages. These coloring books also feature a digital coloring option, and you can color each character’s basic shapes online. Each coloring book provides artists with a palette of basic colors to choose from, and all else is left to your imagination. We tried it ourselves! Aladdin, The Lion King, and Toy Story are just a few beloved Disney properties included here.

Lego

The joy of building with Legos is often found in the process, rather than in the finished product. The same is true for coloring. Paint the World Super Coloring has published no small amount of Lego “dudes” and other coloring pages worth trying. Pirates, Policemen, and Harry Potter are included here, and if your family loves building Legos, they’re bound to enjoy the imaginative process of completing a coloring book. Paint the World Super Coloring also features coloring pages of animals, unique cityscapes, and sports. Link: http://www.supercoloring.com/coloring-pages/toys-and-dolls/lego
