Space coloring pages for adults and kids

Sharing is caring!

Teaching your kids about the planets is fun when you use our space coloring pages printable for kids. When you use coloring pages to teach kids about various areas in life, they retain the information for longer. Today I’ll share a few reasons why coloring is beneficial for kids and what you can do with this space coloring page for kids.

At what age should a child start coloring?

There is no right time to start coloring with your kids. While there are certain ages that pediatricians recommend your child knows their colors and fine motor skills to hold a crayon, the overall consensus of when a child should start coloring is really up to their parents. We’d recommend that your child is at an age where they can hold their own crayons and know that it’s a tool to use on paper, not something to eat.

Children who show signs of this desire to color may be ready to color their own coloring pages. While our space coloring page printables may be best for preschoolers, you could easily color them with your younger children for fun family moments.

Why is coloring with kids important?

Coloring with kids is important as it helps them develop fine motor skills that will encourage their finger and hand muscles to grow properly. This skill is necessary for the ability to brush their teeth and other fine motor skill tasks that utilize your child’s hands and fingers in the future.

Coloring with your children is a great way to bond over a fun, creative and educational activity. As you can see these space coloring page printables provide you with an educational tool to help teach your preschoolers more about our solar system and the planets. Many children enjoy learning more about the world around them, so why not print out these space coloring page printables today.

With this space coloring page, you’ll find the planets in our solar system such as:

  • Earth
  • Jupiter
  • Venus
  • Mars
  • Saturn
  • Mercury
  • Uranus
  • Neptune
  • Pluto

Your kids can see where each planet falls in relation to our home planet, Earth. This is a fun solar system coloring page for kids to enjoy. Allow your kids to color this fun space coloring page printable for kids however they choose. The colors aren’t important, but it is a creative way to educate kids about the planets out there in our solar system.
