Downtime with kids isn't always sunshine and rainbows, but with these springtime-themed coloring pages, it will be.
These printables depict everything that's great about the spring season, but that doesn't mean kids can't use them to scribble their little hearts out year-round. With crayons in hand, kids will have a blast breathing life into everything from blooming sunflowers to chirping birds to plenty of other animals — like an aviator rabbit, a kayaking kitten and a dancing duck.
And when the tots have put the final touches on their masterpieces, why not frame them? That's where part two of this afternoon full of arts-and-crafts fun comes in: coloring in frame templates to show off the beautiful works of art.
So what are you waiting for? In just a few hours, you'll have plenty of new art to post up on the fridge — or, you know, on every wall of your house.
