Did you know that stories about flying, fire-breathing creatures exist in many cultures around the world? Even if you didn’t — your kindergartener probably does! After all, dragons are often featured in kids’ media so wanting to learn more about them is only natural. That’s where our dragon coloring pages for kids come in! These printable drawings are the perfect way to entertain your toddlers while teaching them about their favorite mythical creatures. Our baby dragon pictures could even teach your curious little tykes how to approach smaller animals like birds and snails.

Using Dragon Coloring Pages to Entertain and Educate

As you have seen, the dragons in the illustrations we’ve compiled are depicted in several different artistic styles. If you have younger children or toddlers, we recommend printing out one of the more rounded, cutesy drawings. The coloring surfaces should be large enough for your children to cover without crossing the lines.

The dragons in our coloring sheets mostly look like the characters your children have seen in cartoons. Even Pokémon, which inexplicably keeps resurfacing every few years, has many dragon type creatures. The chief among them is everyone’s favorite reptilian fire-breather, Charizard.

Of course, there’s a small chance that your child is more familiar with the traditional Asian type of dragon. Those tend to look more serpentine than the dragons we see in Western media. If you’ve ever seen Spirited Away or a Chinese Dragon Boat Festival, you’ll know what we mean. With that in mind, this might be the perfect opportunity to talk to your child about different cultures.

Now, if your child is more curious about the real-life origin of these creatures, you could take a different approach. Start a conversation about why so many different cultures have stories about dragons. Ask your child if the dragons in the coloring pages remind them of anything they’ve seen before. That would also be a good time to take a walk through the nearest dinosaur park.

More Dragon Coloring Pages for Kids

Hopefully, the talking points we’ve discussed will keep your kids’ minds occupied for hours at a time. But if the coloring sheet collection we’ve curated doesn’t hold their attention, we’ve found several other sources that might.

Knight and dragon printables are ideal if you have a preschooler who might appreciate more complex drawings.

Similarly, dragons with intricate patterns would be a great challenge for detail-oriented children. Or if your kids like learning about different cultures print out some Chinese dragon coloring pages instead.

Lastly, if you can’t print out a coloring sheet at the moment, you could opt for online coloring apps instead. Even a preschooler could move a mouse around and complete this picture of a little princess and a dragon. Just don’t let them zone out while they’re on the computer.

Ask them why they’re choosing specific colors or what they think is happening in the picture. Better still, let them tell you what they’d do if they ever came across a dragon.
