Cute Ocean Coloring Page Printable for Kids
An Ocean theme study week for your kids is a great introduction to sea animals, a big blue whale, sea horses, and lots of other fun sea animals. Older kids can help young kids by pointing out sea turtles, colorful fish, jellyfish, and sea shells in the pdf download and in the books I will recommend you get down below.
Planning an Ocean Theem for the week? Start your underwater adventure with these cute coloring pages. Grab some bright colors or pencils and let each child choose one color sheet to start off this week of learning. If you want something else fun try these Glitter Fish Puppets. They are easy to make and fun to play with. If it’s a rainy day have your kids play this fun Shark Toss Game to burn some extra energy while you prep their next sea life adventure.
Print these beautiful ocean color pages on regular paper or on cardstock if your kids color hard or you’re letting them paint with watercolors. The bottom of the ocean can be covered in glue and you can add some brown tissue paper to make the ocean floor stand out a little more. Do the same thing to the fish, sea stars, coral, or bubbles.
The best part of using these free printable coloring pages is that you can cut the images out and glue them onto a sheet of vibrant colors like bright blue construction paper.
Spark more learning by asking the kids their colors to practice color recognition. Kids can also glue shapes to the fish like scales and practice their shapes like circles or triangles it’s another fun way to get shape recognition into their day. You can use different shapes on each summer coloring page.

Ocean creatures are all so different but here are a few of my daycare kids’ favorites to learn about.
