Mindfulness Colouring Images (Animals)

Give your children opportunities to be aware of the moment using our free animal colouring sheets. Ten animals are available, including a bat, butterfly, dragonfly, elephant, fox, iguana, owl, raccoon, rhino and turtle. Use these free resources in your classroom in some of the following ways:

  • As calm mindfulness resources to give your children a chance to be aware of the moment and reflect on their feelings and thoughts.
  • Let children colour the printouts as a calm way to start each day... or each afternoon after a busy lunchtime!
  • Challenge children to colour them using a range of materials. Which do they prefer and why?
  • Ask your students to colour them using different shades of one colour.
  • Give children these resources and then ask them to create similar pictures based on their own favourite animals.
  • Have the resources available as an activity for children who have finished other activities early.

If you have any other ideas for using these resources, please let us know in the comments.

Thanks so much for this free tool! I teach art for seniors and they enjoy the "adult coloring" images. I also want them as examples so some of them can create their own designs within a form... and so make their coloring art even more of their own expression.



Thank you so much for these colouring sheets. I will use them for my nearly 4 year old - we like to sit and colour together - and these sheets will suit both of us. Also at work we put mindful colouring sheets in our waiting room for students to colour whilst they wait for counselling. Our existing sheets were looking a bit tired but i am sure they will enjoy these new ones. Thank you.
