We have included some animals that you might not see as often as a squirrel, but that you might hear at night with your children. You can remind that you heard an owls last night or tell them when you hear them at night.

We have also included some African animals that you might recognize from movies like The Lion King.

On each page of this book, you will find a the name of the animal written out so that your child can color it along with the animal.

Even if your child is not reading yet, you can read the name to them so that can begin identifying the animals.

Benefits of Coloring

The benefits of coloring are not always obvious at first. What is the big deal with coloring? Why are there adults coloring books now?

Well, coloring is said to reduce stress and anxiety in children and adults. It is used by Psychologists to help children relax in therapy sessions and is “prescribed” to help children with anxiety and focus problems.

It helps children improve their focus, sleep, and fine motor skills.

With all these benefits, it is important to keep coloring as part of your children’s everyday life.

We love sharing ways to make that happen without breaking the bank and buying coloring books every other week.

How to Print the Coloring Pages?

All you need to print these coloring pages is a black and white printer with paper and ink.

Even if you do not have that, you can send them to your local Office Depot to have them printed for a nominal fee per page.

  • Restaurants – At restaurants to keep your child while they wait for their meal. I always have coloring sheets and a small colored pencil pack in my purse.
  • Waiting – If one child has to wait for another child in the car or at practice, use the lap desk and this coloring book to keep them entertained while they wait.
