​New York City coloring pages for big and little kids

We have another treat for travel fans today. An entire coloring page eBook, with 12 pages in it, focused on the Big Apple. This is a free coloring book for fans of the city, the Statue of Liberty and beyond. We have tried to include sheets that have both detailed patterns on, and simpler art within the activity book, so both young and older kids will be happy to color this in.

This is a collaborative post.

There are 10 free coloring page ideas with a New York theme included. This is a fun way to explore the city either before a trip, or while trying to work out what things to do with kids in NYC you want to focus on when you get there. For example, are you a Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, or Metropolitan Museum of Art kind of a family 😂 If you need a little more info on family activities in New York, we can help there too.

Unleash your kids creative side with these fabulous printable pictures in our free colouring book all about New York City.

What do the New York coloring pages look like?

We’ve covered other countries in our travel coloring pages, including Canada, but we haven’t done anywhere in the United States before. Check out the coloring pages that we have for you. We are starting off with the most famous of iconic landmarks from the City, and the fabulous yellow taxis from the capital.

The best thing about this coloring book is you don’t need a credit card to get it – it is totally free to you! As with most of our coloring – free printable coloring pages are the way we like to roll 😂

New York coloring sheets maybe for older kids

Our next four sheets are probably better suited to middle school and high school kids as they are a little more complicated. The graphic arts for these are themed around coffee shop culture, loving New York, city life, and finally Broadway.

We are sharing two at a time today so that you can see the details on them more easily. They aren’t the simple colorings from the previous two sheets, so you might need to take a bit more time to view them to see what’s included within each.

Stylised Statue of Liberty and the New York Skyline

For both young and old, we have created a lovely image based on the shape of the Statue of Liberty, as well as including the New York skyline too. One of these is a little simpler to color than the other, so may be better for younger children. As there are a few coloring pages in the book, we have mixed it up as to which pages are suitable for which ages. You can pick and choose of course.

​The Big Apple and New York State

Our last two images are themed around both the Big Apple and some of the key symbols associated with the new York State, including the Big Apple, as well as some of the other cultural treasures from the state. This final page is simple line art, with easy outlines for both young and old.

5 New York Facts to include within your lesson plans

We know that sometimes it is fun to add a bit of learning to our coloring pages. It’s a great way to help kids to have fun while they learn a little about some of the places they can travel to. Here are some New York City facts for you to use alongside the coloring sheets. If you need more, why not check out this article as well:

  1. Five Boroughs: New York City is made up of five different areas called boroughs – Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island. Each borough has its own unique culture and landmarks,
  2. Statue of Liberty: One of the most famous landmarks in New York City is the Statue of Liberty. It’s located in New York Harbor and is a symbol of freedom and democracy,
  3. United Nations Headquarters: The headquarters of the United Nations, an international organization that works for peace and development around the world, is in New York City,
  4. Populous City: New York City is the most populous city in the United States. This means it has more people living in it than any other city in the country,
  5. Nickname: New York City is often called “The Big Apple”. This nickname is used in many contexts such as tourism, entertainment, and media. And as you can see, we’ve got a coloring sheet celebrating this for you all to add to the fun!

Maybe once you have colored these pages, you could try some of your own art around United States or New York. If you need a little inspiration, we have a free states jigsaw puzzle. Perhaps you can get some other ideas from some of the other iconic places in New York, such as the Bronx Zoo. You could even make something new – perhaps the rockefeller center – skating activity, can provide your kids with something a little different to do. Why not draw a skater at the center – a serene and different view of New York City life?
