Stay Creative With ArtCafe Photography–Animal Coloring Pages

With everyone at home, ArtCafe Photography has been working on a few small projects to help kids and families express their creativity. We recently did a week of photo scavenger hunts and have been putting together other activities. Since I miss photographing all those little and not so little people in the studio, I decided to photograph some furry, feathered, and reptile friends in and around the house.

I thought it would be fun to introduce you to these little creatures by turning them into coloring pages for kids (and adults). Whether this serves as a sort of at-home art class or is a science or biology lesson to learn about local animals, these coloring pages will help you and your children express creativity and combine the typical learning they do at school with real world examples from being at home and exploring nature.

  • A group of turtles is called a ‘a bale of turtles’. (I had no idea!)

These coloring pages and animal facts or lessons are a creative way to combine photography and doing activities together as a family, as well as a great method for keeping children entertained and busy.

With everything that has been going on, I’m sure many of you are juggling work, childcare, schooling, and more. I hope these small daily activities can serve as a creative outlet and help you connect with each other, nature, and the world around us.
