Father’s Day coloring pages for kids  

A little girl and a woman sit at a table coloring free printable Father's Day coloring pages and cutting out badges and banners to paste onto his Father's Day card envelope.

Want to help the kids create something that will make Dad smile? Check out the designs below!  

While we totally get it if you want their work of art to be a fun surprise, we think coloring is a great family activity. Here are some ideas to make it fun for everyone: 

  • Get prepped. Stock up on crayons and markers beforehand, so no one has to wrestle for the same shade of Dad’s favorite color.
  • Set the table. Slip a Father’s Day coloring page under everyone’s breakfast plate, encouraging everyone to linger at the table for a relaxed start to the day.
  • Switch it up. Set a timer for a few minutes and pass coloring pages around the table every time it dings. You’ll end up with pieces the whole family has poured love into!
  • Add a sweet message. Have kids write a special message on the back before giving it to Dad, so it’s still a surprise.


Ways to use frames and banners

We love anything that makes a card envelope feel extra special. So we included some banners and badges to color, cut out and attach to his Father’s Day card envelope. You could also print the badges out on card stock, color them, and make Dad a wearable button for his Father’s Day celebration!

Tips for shading 

Want to try your hand at shading? We’ve got pretty great artists here at Hallmark, and they’ve got some pretty awesome advice to take your coloring game to the next level.

  • Simplify. Keep things from getting visually overwhelming by limiting colors to just two or three options.
  • Go monochrome. Pick a few shades of the same color (example: pink, dark pink and light pink).
  • Be complimentary. Pick three colors that are next to each other in the rainbow, like green, blue and purple.
  • Under pressure. Use different amounts of pressure to create darker areas, lighter areas and blend different colors.
  • Try pointillism. Use markers to make dots of a darker color (orange) to create shading on a lighter color (yellow). Look at you being all artistic!

What to do with Father’s Day coloring pages when they’re done

If Dad isn’t there for the kids to pass their work of art to, no problem! We’ve got some ways surprise and delight him with their finished Father’s Day coloring pages.

  • Tuck it into a card. We’ve got cards for every kind of dad. The hardest part will be choosing which one he’ll love the most.
  • Wrap his favorite treat with it. If it’s something refrigerated, just be sure to wrap that treat in plastic first, so your coloring page doesn’t get soggy.
  • Wrap his gift with it. If his Father’s Day gift is on the small side, use the coloring page to wrap it. Whether you keep the colored part on the inside or the outside is up to you! You could also slip it into a gift bag with your Father’s Day gift.
