I enjoy coloring now as an adult as much as I did as a kid. All three of my children thought it was a fun way for us to spend quality time together being creative.

How do you make a coloring book at home?

Thanks to technology, it’s really not difficult to make your own coloring book, even if you’re not talented at drawing.

  • You can draw shapes and images to create your own coloring pages. Use a black pen or marker to make the outline of the image. You can draw the image in pencil first and then out line it in black marker. Simple, bold designs are easiest to create.
    • Once you create your coloring page, scan it to keep as a printable pdf so that you can print and color the image over and over again.
  • You can print out free pdfs (like the ones below) to make coloring pages.
  • Whether you make your own cool coloring pages or use free printable pages, you can print them out on your own printer or take them to a print shop.
  • While you can print the coloring page images out on regular copy paper, it is better to use slightly heavier cardstock paper for a better coloring experience.
  • Print as many different coloring sheets as you’d like. Take them to a copy shop to be bound or bind them yourself at home:
