These free printable dinosaur coloring pages with names are perfect for your dino-loving little one. There are nine popular dinos with two different poses for each one for plenty of coloring fun!
Nine of the pages feature the dinosaur’s name in bubble letters to color in. The other of the pages have the dino’s name in a dotted font with writing lines so your little learner can trace and practice their handwriting. Although the same nine dinosaurs are available in both versions, the poses are different so there are no exact repeats.

How to print and use dinosaur coloring pages
Printing and uses these coloring pages is pretty straightforward – print them off and hand them over to your eager dino lover!
I recommend printing the coloring pages on 32 lb bright white paper for the best coloring experience. Remember those yellow, rough coloring pages in coloring books as a child? They’re not that fun to color on. This 32 lb paper is smooth and bright for vibrant colors and easy coloring.
It may sound strange, but you can laminate these pages for repeated use. We recently discovered Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils. They’re basically a large wax crayon in a wooden pencil format. You can use them instead of a dry erase marker, so they can be used to color laminated coloring pages. This means you can make reusable coloring pages. What a time saver! Just print and laminate them once.
Stabilo Woody pencils are remarkably good at coloring on laminated pages with rich, vibrant colors. Reusable coloring pages are amazing – just wipe them down with a very lightly damp towel and the pencil comes right off. No more printing favorite pages a zillion times. Just print and laminate them once for virtually endless coloring fun.
- XXL lead applies as much pigment as 8 colored pencils at once
- Large width ideal for smaller hands
I know it sounds too good to be true, so I made a quick video showing the Stabilo Woody pencils in action. I demonstrate how you can color back and forth over the same area (it would just erase itself with a dry erase marker) and how vibrant the colors are.
Cleaning the pencil off is easy with a very slightly damp towel. Move to a clean spot on the towel, as needed, and use firm strokes in one direction to clean up quickly and easily.
If you don’t want to laminate, use dry erase pockets instead of page protectors. Page protectors, even heavy duty ones, can wrinkle with vigorous back and forth coloring.
