Printable Adult Coloring Pages

Adult coloring pages have become all the rage over the past couple of years. I for one couldn’t be happier about it! My love for coloring was inherited from my dad who was coloring with crayons in kid’s books long before free printable adult coloring pages became available.

Below are a few free printable coloring pages for adults so you can color without spending a dime. No coloring pencils on hand? Break out your kids’ crayons if you have to and remember to relax and have fun. Coloring can be a great stress reliever for grown-ups and a way to keep up your fine motor skills as you age.

Coloring Supplies

The art of coloring can be as simple or as detailed as you’d like it to be. Here are a few supplies you’ll need for the coloring process.


As far as colored pencils go, I’m currently slumming it with cheap colored pencils I already had on hand. Nothing wrong with that. You can even break out the crayons and spend quality time with your kids by letting them color with you!

However, I keep hearing about high-quality color pencils like Prismacolor Color Pencils and Goldfaber Color Pencils. They seem to be the favorite among adults with coloring skills better than my own.

Alcohol Markers

If you’re ready for a coloring adventure, branch out beyond pencils and try alcohol markers. You can get incredibly vibrant color options with these artist markers and bring shading to a whole new level. Plus you’ll never have to worry about sharpening pencils.

And if that doesn’t cut it? Watch and listen to someone else color and I guarantee you’ll relax enough to go to sleep!

If you’re on a budget or on the go, try a coloring app such as Happy Color or Chroma. These free apps don’t require you to have any supplies on hand and you can even “color” in the dark.

Whichever way it takes you, enjoy your coloring journey.
