Uncover the Magic With Fairy Coloring Pages for Kids
Generally, when a preschooler truly adores a subject, they tend to soak up any information about it. So if you’re looking to connect with them, you could do some research and tell your kids some fairy trivia while they color. We’ll even get you started with some fun facts about these mythical creatures.
For example: did you know that fairies are traditionally much more ominous than the images we have of them now? People who grew up in the nineties and early aughts usually associate fairies with FernGully, Tinker Bell, and the girls from the Winx Club cartoon. But before that, fairies were simply human-like supernatural beings with magical powers.
According to the old stories, fairies love playing pranks on people — which is a trait we can recognize in Peter Pan’s mischievous companion, at least. These creatures are often depicted as guardians of nature. That’s why the coloring pages above show them picking acorns, surrounded by flowers, mushrooms, and leaves.
If your child identifies with fairy characters, you could use that passion to make them care about the environment. In the Tinker Bell movies, different types of fairies perform different tasks in nature. There are water, garden, animal fairies, and more! So ask your little pixie if she’d like to try being a specific type of fairy for a day.
If she wants to be a water or garden fairy, get her wings and head to the nearest body of water or park. You can teach her about the importance of keeping our water clean while cleaning a part of the beach or picking up litter at the park. Aspiring animal fairies can just do some bird watching while they’re there too.
