Fathers Day Coloring Pages for Kids: A Fun and Meaningful Craft.

Here is the why and how, followed by 13 sites where you’ll find the best Fathers day coloring pages for kids.

Father’s Day is a special time to show dads how much we love them. One great way to keep kids busy and create a gift for dad is with coloring pages. Coloring is fun and helps kids learn too. Let’s explore how to make this Father’s Day extra special with some simple coloring activities. And if coloring pages are not your thing, here are a million other ways to create DIY Fathers Day Gifts.

Why Fathers Day coloring pages for kids?

Coloring pages are easy to find and free to print. They are a great way to keep kids of all ages entertained. Younger kids can practice staying inside the lines, while older kids and teens can enjoy more detailed designs.

Ideas for Different Ages

  • For Little Kids: Look for simple pictures. Maybe a drawing of a dad and child holding hands, or a big heart with “I love you, Dad” written inside. These are easy for little hands to color.
  • For Older Kids and Teens: Choose more complex images. Think about a dad doing something cool, like fishing or playing sports. Teens might enjoy pages with intricate designs, like a father and child surrounded by patterns.

Fathers Day coloring pages for kids: can bring the family together

We all want a dream story like my friend Sarah’s who wanted to make Father’s Day special for her husband. She printed out some coloring pages for her kids, Emma, who is 5, and Jake, who is 13. Emma chose a picture of a superhero dad, and Jake picked a detailed car drawing because his dad loves cars. They spent the afternoon coloring together. On Father’s Day, their dad was thrilled with the colorful pictures. He even hung them in his office at work.”

Ok. your 5 and 13 year old might not want to sit on the same table (at first), but, that’s not to say that making coloring pages are fun for both, and actually can bring them closer together…

How to make it special

Older kids could do their own thing, but I find that if things are set up as ‘it’s craft day today’ and I make a project table, changes of creative things being made are far greater. So:

  1. Pick the Right Pages: Choose pages that match your kids’ ages and interests.
  2. Gather Supplies: Get crayons, markers, or colored pencils. Have some glitter or stickers handy for extra fun.
  3. Set Up a Craft Area: Find a quiet place where the kids can focus on coloring.
  4. Encourage Creativity: Let the kids choose the colors and add their own touches.

Finishing Touches

Once the coloring pages are done, you can:

  • Frame Them: Put the pictures in a simple frame. It makes a nice gift.
  • Make a Card: Fold the coloring page into a card. Write a sweet message inside.
  • Create a Collage: If you have multiple pages, arrange them into a big collage.

i personally like to encourage a theme, of a creative project that matches the father’s day gift idea. I have for example made Fathers Day Gift tags , Fathers Day Bookmarks and Fathers Day Cards around fishing and golf, which then perfectly match a ‘free round of golf’, a set of golf balls, a golf hat, or similar.
