Start Nurturing Your Child’s Green Thumb With Flower Coloring Pages for Kids
Nowadays, most kids become interested in plants because of kids’ media. Every cartoon that features a group of kids with magical powers has at least one character that can control plants. The latest one to join their ranks was Perfuma from She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. However, this group also includes iconic characters like Poison Ivy, Cornelia from W.I.T.C.H., and the nature fairies from Winx Club.
If your child always identifies with these kinds of characters, give them a chance to experience that magic. Printing out a coloring sheet or two from our collection is one way to do that. Still, there are other things you could include in this exercise to make it more enjoyable for your kids.
For example, you could make the final product more magical by letting your kids use glitter pens or markers. In addition, you could get other craft supplies like sequins, buttons, and fabric flowers to make the picture three-dimensional.
If you want to take the experience off the page, you could have your children help you around the garden. Setting aside a plot of land that’s all theirs will make them feel like they’re contributing. You could also buy them adorable little gardening tools. Just don’t freak out when they inevitably get their clothes all muddy!
If you need help convincing your toddlers that plants are important, you could tell them about how seeds were a way for people in different communities to take a bit of home with them wherever they go. After all, that’s how apples, pears, carrots, and cabbage came to America! And that could be just the beginning of a conversation about the origin of different fruits and veggies.
More Flower Coloring Pages for Kids
You’ve probably noticed that most of the printable illustrations we’ve presented above depict fairly isolated flowers. But if you managed to get your child to like gardening, they may prefer a coloring page from Super Coloring.
Conversely, if you’re looking for more realistic illustrations that are more suitable for older kids — check out this page. In that case, we have another activity recommendation for you and your children. Namely, you could start drying botanic specimens and keeping them in a herbarium. Not only can the results be rather beautiful, but it’ll also give you and your children something to do when you go on walks.
On the other hand, if you have a preschooler that’s not very into realistic plants, take a more imaginative approach. If your children prefer the anthropomorphic flower illustrations in our collection, bring them some Alice In Wonderland coloring pages.
