Here’s a cute, little coloring booklet full of baby animals, preschoolers favorites. Baby elephants, hippos, tigers, and more, this book will keep them busy coloring for hours. Just print and color and reinforce learning the names of all of the kid’s favorite animals. Make sure you “roar like a lion”, “baa like a lamb”, “walk like a penguin” and more. This is also a good craft that they can take home and share with their family.
Here’s a simple to color turtle page. If you are putting together a bulletin board theme for the month, the turtle is a great addition to yesterday’s Fun at the Pond theme. This turtle is sure to make a great friend to the bullfrog project the kids made yesterday. Alternatively, you can tear some green paper into squares and create a mosaic project if time permits.
This is such an adorable craft to make for National Different Colored Eye Day. Have the children color the bug’s eyes any color they want.

1. Print the Kraftykid’s Fun Bug Eye Craft template.
2. Color the bug’s eyes any colors you want. Compare with your own eyes and your classmates’ eyes.
