I’m totally obsessed with adult coloring! And free adult coloring pages so that I can practice my craft. Not so very long ago, I wrote a guide on how to do it – because let me be honest, as an adult I need to be told how to relax. In that guide, I also reviewed various coloring tools and which ones were my favorites.

Adult Coloring Pages

Now I’m sharing a HUGE collection of free adult coloring pages with you! I absolutely love coloring books and own a bunch of those, but I love the printable adult coloring pages too. It’s nice to be able to grab a particular design that you like depending on your mood!

If you are just as into free coloring pages as I am, check out the options below. I’ve been to each of these links personally and have either printed and colored them (or they are on my list). There’s a ton and it’s going to take me awhile to work through of them . . . but that’s what I love!

This list should keep you busy for, well, forever! Visit the links below to download your favorite free coloring pages. These free adult coloring pages (with a few at the bottom for kids because I felt guilty) are organized by category so you can find what you are looking for easily. Enjoy!

What Paper Should I Use for Printing my Adult Coloring Pages?

Standard printer paper is typically 20 – 40 lb. I like to use 60 or 80 lb. paper to print my coloring pages  (which is typically at most stores where you’d buy printer paper).

When the paper is a bit thicker, it makes the colors more vibrant. Standard printer paper is very thin!

The 60 or 80 lb. paper is also easier to use in crafts. If I know I’m going to Mod Podge the coloring pages, I might even print them on white cardstock!

What Colored Pencils Should I Use?

It’s funny you should ask, because I’ve tested a bunch of colored pencils myself and found the best colored pencils for adult coloring books (and they work for printables too).

To give you an idea of what to expect, I found the Pentel Arts set of 24 colored pencils to be the best cheap colored pencils. You need to see my other picks though – there are some fun options!

Now onto the adult coloring pages!

Thanks for putting this list together. Free coloring pages are great - I think a lot of the coloring programs at hospitals, nursing homes, and community centers couldn't exist without them. Some of the really high quality coloring books are just so expensive!

While free coloring pages are great and give a lot of people the opportunity to get back into coloring, it's important to make sure the artists are getting credit for there work. I used to love going on Pinterest and finding thousands of free coloring pages until I realized that a lot of them were stolen. Generally, if the artist of the page is not cited, I'm skeptical that a website has permission to give away the page.

I know it's tempting to download all the free pages you can, but if we don't have some respect for the artists that create these beautiful works, what's their incentive to keep making coloring pages?

i do not have a printer how can you be able to send them through the mail box

Hi Sue! There's no way to send them - but what you can do is go to a FedEx Kinkos and print them. It's inexpensive when you are just doing black and white copies! :D
