Earth Day Coloring Pages
In all the years I’ve been creating and sharing free printables, I’ve never created anything for Earth Day. I don’t know why as it is an event that I am aware of, but I think it’s one of those that creeps up on me and then I’ve missed it.
So I’ve got a whole bunch of different Earth Day Printables for you this year, starting with a set of 9 Earth Day coloring pages!
What is Earth Day?
Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First held on April 22, 1970, it now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by EarthDay.org including 1 billion people in more than 193 countries.Wikipedia
The theme of Earth Day 2021 is Restore Our Earth™, and I think it’s a great choice after the past year we’ve had as a planet. With the pandemic and global lockdowns, we could see how quickly the planet can recover when humans are not polluting it! It’s something I feel like humanity should learn from and protect for future generations.
Use this years theme to discuss environmental issues with your children, like deforestation, pollution, and climate change. Talk about ways you can help – maybe picking up litter in your neighborhood, planting a tree, recycling at home, or simply going for a walk in nature.
And of course you can use my free printables for Earth Day to aid your discussions and activities.

Suggested Art Supplies
I like to keep a good stash of art supplies so that I am always ready when my nieces and nephews come to visit! You don’t need all the things on my suggested art supplies list, but I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.
- I love Crayola Super Tips – they come in boxes of various amounts – I’ve got the 100 count box as you can never have too many colors!
- If your child (or you!) prefers to use crayons, I don’t think you can go wrong with classic Crayolas, again they come in various counts.
- Prefer colored pencils? I really don’t think you can go wrong with Crayolas for coloring!
- They also have fun scented pencils which will no doubt bring the coloring pages alive with smells!
- Does your child like to paint? I bought this Arteza Kid’s Watercolor Kit for my 6-year-old niece and she loves it!
- Want to add some sparkle? Add glitter! Crayola has a 25 count set, and a 9 count set of glitter glue.
