Similar to mermaid coloring pages and unicorn coloring pages, dragon coloring pages are an excellent tool in unlocking your child’s artistry, imagery, and fine motor skills (the functioning of smaller muscles and joints in the fingers, hands, and wrists). Plus, dragons are super fun to color with their long tails, sharp tongues, and powerful wingspan. What better way to engage a child’s sense of wonder and budding curiosity than with a creative exercise like coloring—or scribbling, if that’s more their forte. 

Tons of dragon coloring pages exist (that are free to download!), giving kids the opportunity to learn about all different sorts of dragons like fire-breathing dragons, three-headed dragons, flying dragons, and more. Hey, it beats a trip to the reptile pet store, right mama? Click on each illustration’s name to download and print these fiery dragon coloring pages at no charge.
