During the Thanksgiving holiday season, a wonderful activity to provide your children with is Thanksgiving coloring pages! While this allows children to be creative, it can also teach them about this holiday. There are numerous websites where you can find free printable Thanksgiving coloring pages. Below are some websites that I feel are excellent sources for coloring pages. Enjoy!
apples4theteacher.com: This is a great site that features interactive online coloring pages! Once you pick a picture you would like to color, the cursor turns into a crayon. Then you pick from a large variety of colors by placing the crayon on the color of your choice. Next, touch the crayon on the picture where you want that color to appear and you instantly have color on your picture. This actually is very addictive! Once you have your page all colored in, you can print it if you like! Simple as that!
