Diploma. Graduation cap. Happy faces. These are the images that children will learn to associate with graduation day. In my search for coloring pages with the theme of graduation, all three images are recurrent. Here are 16 links to simple coloring pages that parents or teachers can print out for their kids or students graduating from preschool or kindergarten.

After all, it’s a celebration of moving on to the next stage: elementary school.
