Summer coloring and printable pages can give you a quick activity to pull out whenever you need it. Though most summer days are spent playing in the sun, there are times (like dog days) when it’s best to stay inside and relax. What better break between swimming and lunch than time to bring out the crayons and get creative? Summer coloring pages are available in many different styles and from many different websites. Here are a few great websites for summer coloring pages.
Primary Games has a great set of summer coloring pages at http://www.primarygames.com/seasons/summer/color.htm that includes beach and insect images as well as vacation scenes. Simply click on the pictures to get a full size blackline image to print out. To conserve paper, save the images and print more than one image to a sheet, or print one image on one side of the paper and another on the reverse. Detail is anything from cartoony to artistic.
If you are looking for summer coloring pages and other printable activities, consider Family Fun at http://familyfun.go.com/printables/coloring-pages/specialfeature/summer-printables-coloring-pages_ms and treat your child to puzzles, paper airplanes, camp activities, and summer coloring pages with sometimes offbeat themes. Be sure to bookmark the site, because you will find many other themes that you can use throughout the year.
I just loved the summer coloring pages available from Edupics. There are several themes and some are even educational. At http://www.edupics.com/en-coloring-pages-pictures-photo-summer-c102.html , the best summer coloring pages were the ones with heavy detail. Where else can you find a mosquito as well as a relaxing summer scene. From cartoony to realistic, these summer coloring pages totally rock.
Though a sometimes difficult site to navigate, the plethora of summer coloring pages available at Family Education are well worth the click. Located at http://printables.familyeducation.com/?theme=coloring-pages&detoured=1, the family education printables include historical images and scientific (nature) subjects. The details are quite nice, and some of the images are extremely well drawn. Be sure to keep this favorite site handy for other activities and printables.
Homeschool parents love Abcteach for its seemingly endless supply of resources, but all parents can appreciate the summer coloring pages and printables located at http://www.abcteach.com/directory/seasonalseasons/summer/.

Another popular free homeschooling resource site, Apples4theteacher offers summer coloring pages at http://www.apples4theteacher.com/coloring-pages/summer/ that include plenty of great images to color. Most appear to be camping themed, but there are a few summer coloring pages of typical summer critters and activities.
