Fun With Lion Coloring Pages
Want to color a few big cats? There are some great lion coloring pages that are fun to color and moms and dads can help too! Finding activities for kids and parents can be really easy or be really difficult. Kids are so creative, active and excited about everything which is a great thing, but sometimes they get bored of the same games and activities and want a change. So this is something new you can try.
Online you can find so many lion coloring pages, and you can even find lions with different emotions. Let's go over some ideas on how to color. One lion is angry, he's angry because some other animal took his dinner away! So let's color him golden yellow all over except his face which will be red! You kids know how when people sometimes get angry their faces turn red, that's what we're going to do to the lion as well.
Then we have a lion sleeping in a garden. Color in the grass green, flowers of many colors and right above the lion put some zzz's. Now you might be wondering why people use zzz for sleeping, well, it all started with comic strips. When people started drawing comics, they didn't know how to show 'sleeping', so they thought of what it sounds like when we sleep and that's zzzzzzz... Try listening to someone sleeping, and you hear the zzz's! This is called onomatopoeia (new word you can use in school kids!). It's just like the words pow, buzz, bang, boom, zip or crash.
Moving on to the happy lion, what special colors are you going to give him? Maybe extra shinny teeth for his big smile, draw him a bow tie, or maybe draw some hearts around him because he's happy to be in love with a beautiful lioness! If the lion and the lioness are the King and Queen of their jungle, draw them cool crowns too with jewels all around them. Did you know that the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth, has a 105 carat (it means like it is really really really big, huge, gigantic!) diamond on her crown? This diamond is called the Koh-i-Noor and is one of the biggest diamonds in the world, but for your special lions make the jewels bigger!
Now when it comes to species of lions, there are 7 and they don't all look the same. Some have more hair, some are look more like huge cats and some are all white! So when you have your lion coloring pages don't forget to think about what kind of lion it is. There are the African lions, Asiatic lions, American lions, Mountain lions, Cave lions and the White lions.
So enjoy your coloring activities and also enjoy some of these great lion facts
