The best coloring supplies for kids
Coloring pages aren’t just fun for kids – they’re developmentally helpful and appropriate.
Coloring helps your child express their creativity, improve fine motor skills, and practice their pencil grip. The farm animal coloring pages with words have the added benefit of reinforcing vocabulary and providing an opportunity to trace letters.
Here are a few supplies to help you make the most of your coloring experience:
I recommend printing coloring pages on bright white 32lb paper. The paper is bright and smooth for an enjoyable coloring experience. Do you remember being frustrated by crummy, low-quality coloring book pages as a child? Pages that looked yellow and had a rough, hard to color texture? Give your child the gift of a better coloring experience than you had – grab some surprisingly affordable premium paper. It makes coloring so much nicer.

Our family has four completely different, equally favorite sets of coloring tools:
- Gel pens
- Colored pencils
Because there are a lot of frustratingly poor, but enticingly low-priced, gel pen sets available, I wrote an entire post on the best gel pens for coloring. These two are our top picks (my husband is actually the gel pen devotee):
The Sakura pens are a bit pricey for a child’s coloring, but the Tanmit gel pen set set is affordable and works well for coloring.
My top pick for markers are Crayola Supertips. They’re affordable and fun for both adults and children. They’re fairly washable, available in a variety of colors, and you can even use them for calligraphy practice!
My daughter’s favorite crayons are Honeysticks natural beeswax crayons. The colors palette is limited, but the colors are rich and creamy. She used to always complain about not being able to see most of the colors from her major name brand crayon set. She never complains of not being able to see what she colors with Honeysticks.
These crayons have the added benefit of being pure beeswax, which means they’re safe for little mouths that can’t always resist tasting their crayons.
Nothing beats Prismacolor pencils for creaminess. It may seem silly to get art pencils for a young child, but I’m a firm believer in providing a smaller number of higher quality art materials. Allowing your child to use “real” colored pencils that color well is much more likely to keep them engaged with coloring and interested in drawing, in general.
- Soft, thick cores are perfect for shading and shadows
- Ultra-smooth, even color laydown
- Lightfast, richly saturated pigments

Each free download link is located below the corresponding preview image. Please download the PDF and do not print the small, low-resolution preview image because it will look terrible.
