Rainbow Coloring Pages
There is something about rainbows that signifies hopes and dreams, and I think we all need this right now. Color these rainbow-themed colouring sheets and place them in your windows for the world to see!
There are 8 different rainbow coloring pages in this free printable set, with a cover page to color in too if you like.
Pick your favorites and print off just those pages, or print them all off and color them to your heart’s content!
For demonstration purposes, I’ve digitally colored the front cover, but it is blank in the free printable.

The cover page says “Rainbow Coloring* Pages” with a rainbow in the background. The cover image above has been digitally colored for demonstration purposes and is blank in the actual printable.
*or Colouring, depending on which version you download
Here is a description of each page:
- A rainbow arch behind a hill, with the words “I can see a rainbow” in front
- A little girl surrounded by art supplies including a notepad with a rainbow on it
- A little boy next to a drawing easel with a rainbow on it, and surrounded by some art supplies
- A painter’s palette with seven paint blotches, plus two paintbrushes and two tubes of paint
- A little boy and a little girl sitting in front of a rainbow
- A unicorn standing on a cloud in front of a rainbow and stars
- A unicorn pony standing between two clouds and a rainbow
- A rainbow arch behind a hill with a sun in one corner and a raincloud in the other
Downloads are further down the page and surrounded by a purple box.
I’ve provided two paper sizes – A4 and US Letter (8.5″ x 11″) – use which size is appropriate for your printer.

Suggested Art Supplies
You can use whatever art supplies you like to bring these rainbow coloring pages to life!
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.
If you are short on space to store stuff, why not invest in a craft tote to keep everything together and stash away when not in use? There are many different sizes and styles so buy one (or two) to suit your needs. I have a couple of this style of tote just for pens and pencils!
You can use whatever art supplies you like to bring these coloring pages to life. 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!
They’re kid-friendly and washable, and they also draw thick and thin lines so you can color with precision, as well as cover larger areas.
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.
There are also glitter Crayola crayons and metallic Crayola crayons which will add some shimmer and sparkle.
You’re going to think I’m biased toward the Crayola brand, but I’m not! They just happen to make awesome and affordable art supplies that are safe for kids to use! So try out their colored pencils, because 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 colouring pages alive with smells!
For older children, and adults who may prefer to blend their colors, try the Arteza brand which is very affordable. Slightly more expensive, but amazing pencils for coloring enthusiasts, are Prismacolor.
Up next, are paints – specifically watercolors – which I love using. I bought this Arteza Kid’s Watercolor Kit for my 6-year-old niece and she loves it. It comes in 36 colors, a water brush, and a watercolor pad.
Arteza also has a paint set for kids with 25 colors and a regular paintbrush. (There are Crayola paints too!)
And finally, GLITTER! Add some sparkle to your coloring pages with glitter, because everything is awesome with glitter!
I think glitter glue is the easiest to use as you just apply it directly without having to worry about lots of loose glitter going everywhere. Surprise, surprise, my suggestion is Crayola! (I think it’s because I know it’s a brand that is available worldwide, and my readers are far-flung around the globe.)
They have a 25-count set and a 9-count set of glitter glue. Crayola’s glitter glue is also washable, so you don’t have to panic if it gets onto your skin or clothes.
