These 4th of July coloring pages are fun for adults, teens, and children! Bonus weekly and daily planner pages for July will help you stay organized during the busy summer season.
The 4th of July brings up so many feelings for me. On one hand, I used to work at Colonial Williamsburg and it’s kind of hard not to remember the enthusiasm felt by visitors on the holiday and the fun of slipping into a front row “seat” at the fireworks as a barricade attendant (people seriously sit out on Palace Green all day long for a good spot!).
On the other hand, my dad passed unexpectedly in the early morning of July 5. It’s impossible for me not to miss him. I miss him so much and wish he could meet my daughter. I know he wanted to be a grandfather and that he would have been the grandpa who loved our little LG fiercely.
Anyway, that’s why this post about 4th of July coloring pages is a little more sedate than my other coloring page posts.
In addition to the more ‘traditional’ coloring pages, I’m also including a themed gratitude planner sheet for July, which is something I haven’t done before. If you’re interested in more similar themed journal pages in the future, please let me know! Losing my dad started me on the journey to a gratitude practice, so it seemed like a fitting thing to include.
I hope you enjoy these coloring sheets and check back again in the future because, like with all my coloring page posts, this one will doubtlessly grow with time. To make sure you don’t miss out, Pin this post now and check back again soon!

Recommended coloring supplies
If you print these pages off on cheap copy paper and then try to color with your favorite markers, you’re not going to be very happy with the results.
At the very least, print on a premium, bright white paper.
Better yet, use a presentation paper. Its’s a heavier paper with a coating that makes it beautiful for coloring. Pencils go on smoothly and markers typically don’t feather because the ink doesn’t soak in.
For wet media, especially paints, use a laser printer instead of inkjet. I have a high-end inkjet printer and can actually color with markers when I print on presentation paper, but I definitely can’t use my watercolor paints on inject-printed page!
If you don’t own a laser printer, either print your own sheet at home then make photocopies, or just bring the files to a local copy shop. Libraries almost always have laser printers, too!
My absolute favorite pencils for cooling are Prismacolor Premier pencils. They’re so rich and creamy!
- Soft, thick cores are perfect for shading and shadows
- Lightfast, richly saturated pigments
- Ultra-smooth, even color laydown
I just started coloring more with markers lately and I’m really loving the Crayola Super Tips. They’re affordable, vibrant, and don’t feather on my presentation paper! They’re even working well with inkjet printouts (on presentation paper) for me, which is awesome.
