Looking for a fun Earth Day activity to do with your kids? These free printable coloring pages are a fun, low-prep way for kids to celebrate at home. Grab all the pages for free below, and make sure to print them out on recycled paper!

April 22nd is just around the corner, which means that this month, we’ll be putting a special emphasis on teaching our kids to take care of the Earth. (Though of course, that’s something we encourage at any time of year!)

For our family, that means doing lots of planting for our garden. My kids are always so excited to see the seeds sprout, and they love helping us transplant the seedling outside once they’re ready!

But on days where we don’t have time to do planting or crafts, coloring is one of our go-to activities. And if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place.

These cute coloring pages are perfect for both younger and older kids, and they don’t require any advance prep. All you need to do is grab the files and print them out at home. (On recycled paper, of course!)

My kids had lots of fun coloring in these pictures, and I hope your kids will too. Happy Earth Day!

How to Print These Coloring Sheets

After you download the files to your computer, simply print the pages on US Letter-sized paper (8.5 x 11 inches) and have your kids color in the pictures using crayons, pencils or markers.

If you are printing the pages on A4 paper rather than US Letter, make sure to double-check the “Scale to Fit” setting on your printer to ensure that none of the printable area is being cut off.

In keeping with the theme of environmental awareness, I recommend printing out these coloring pages on recycled paper.

You can even make them reusable by laminating the pages using a thermal laminator or self-laminating sheets, or by placing them inside plastic page protectors or dry erase pockets!
