Seashell coloring pages will have children imagining they are at the beach collecting shells! I love using free printable coloring pages to keep my kids active and creative especially during the summer.
WHY CHILDREN SHOULD COLOR
Coloring is an important part of childhood. Sitting down with crayons and coloring pictures is fun, but there are also other good reasons to have your kids color!
Coloring is great for fine motor development in kids. They work those fine motor skills by holding and using crayons and markers.
I also love how coloring helps improve hand-eye coordination.
Don't forget that kids learn their colors quicker if they color regularly and have someone to help them identify colors as they go.
Since I know my kids need to color there is nothing better than using free printable coloring pages to keep them occupied.
SEASHELL COLOR PAGES
These seashell coloring pages are full of different kinds of shells.
One fun way to keep the kids busy would be to see if the kids can try to identify the shells on different pages.
This can be kind of tricky, but no worries if you don't know the exact shell name! The kids won't care, LOL.
Some of the most common shells you find on the beach are scallop, conch, baby's ear, sundial, moon snail, oyster, whelk, murex, and the cockle. If you want to be really specific you can check out seashell.org for a great resource on identifying shells!
I love to give my kids pretty pastel colors for shell coloring pages!
MORE FUN WITH SEASHELLS
I happen to be obsessed with shells. Whenever we go to the beach I end up with a cramped neck from all of the beach combings I do to find shells!
Needless to say, this has passed down to my kids! We are crazy excited about shells. I have so many in my room now in pretty jars and containers.
There are lots of seashell crafts kids can make. It is a great summer activity.
My kids also love to play seashell tic tac toe when we are in the car driving to a vacation destination.
