  • Tips and Tricks for Coloring Your Summer Images

    Now that you’ve chosen some fun summer coloring sheets, here are a few parting tips to help you on your way before you dive in with the crayons and markers.

    Choose Summery Colors

    Summer is known for bright, bold colors awash in sunlight. Let Mother Nature inspire your creativity while you color by choosing summery colors!

    For example, you might grab for green and yellow, but you can also mix green and yellow to get interesting color combinations. Don’t forget about pink, either. You can add lots of pink to your summer coloring sheets, or even mix it with green to see what you can make. A beach coloring page could have a pink and green umbrella, for example, while a shark coloring page could require some careful blending of blue and green.

    Don’t Be Afraid to Be Bold

    You don’t need to stop there. Yes, green, yellow and pink are great summer colors, but there’s no risk when it comes to these simple coloring pages. You can be as bold and daring as you like. So why not go for it and try bigger colors like red, blue and purple? You can even use our guide for mixing blue and red to make your own unique shades of purple.

    Don’t let expectations constrain your creativity. Color that sandcastle purple on a beach coloring page. Make an ice cream cone that has a whole rainbow of colors inside it. There’s no reason not to let your creativity go wild.

    Color With Friends

    When you’re choosing these printable coloring sheets, you may want to print a few extras. This lets you color with friends, which is a great summer activity. Since it’s so easy to print and share these coloring sheets, there’s no reason not to get the whole neighborhood involved.

    Turn It Into a Game

    You can easily turn your coloring time into a game or even a competition. Vye to see who can color the craziest or most complicated scene. Or have an adult judge a coloring competition to choose the king or queen of summer coloring.

    Try Unusual Combinations

    Make up your own colors! Sure, it might not work out perfectly every time, but this is summer! Perfection is great for schoolwork, but summer is a time to play and experiment. Don’t be afraid to try something that sounds strange. What about blue and pink? It might not be the most obvious combination, but you could end up with a color you love.

    Keep Your Creations Safe

    We recommend bringing a folder with you so that no matter where your summer coloring takes you, you can keep your creations safe. This is especially handy if you’re at the beach or out camping. You wouldn’t want these coloring sheets to get wet, for example. A simple school folder can protect them from harm.

    Have Fun!

    Most of all, however, you should have fun with these summer coloring pages. Whatever you’re doing and wherever you’re doing it, these free printable coloring pages should enhance your summer fun. Relive your favorite times at the beach with beach coloring pages or dive into the depths of the ocean with shark coloring pages. It’s up to you!
