The lily pad outlines are perfect for coloring or cutting and tracing on to cardstock or construction paper.
If your child (or students) are working on their cutting skills, have them use a pair of blunt-tipped scissors to help cut out the lily pads. Older children can trace the lily pads, too.
It’s incredibly important for children to practice their cutting and tracing skills. Research shows that more and more children lack basic fine motor skills because they’re using more tech. Good, old-fashioned paper and scissor crafts are a great way to help your child gain important skills!
These lily pad patterns can also be used as part of a lesson about ponds or the lifecycle of a frog. People frequently wonder if frogs actually sit on lily pads. Yes, they do! In fact, lily pads are very important for frogs. Frogs use lily pads to hunt for insects and as protection from predators like fish and snakes.

First, some important business. These lily pad printables are free for personal and classroom use. Please do not redistribute them to other adults for use with their classrooms or children. Just send friends and coworkers to this post so they can download their own copies!
Please do not download the preview pictures. They are low resolution previews that will look terrible if printed. Use the download links to get the high resolution PDF files. All files are linked individually below each preview image.
