If you’re looking for a quick and easy coloring project that you can complete with your kids, Common Canopy has three free animal themed coloring cards for you to download. Print them on cardstock, color them together, write encouraging messages on the back, and pass them out as a random act of kindness for those in need of a smile.
This free adult coloring page features flowers you can use to test out different color combos on, as well as space to write down the names of the colors you like best. There’s room for up to five colors per flower, with eight flowers per page.
In addition to helping to keep you organized, I think this is so much prettier than simply scribbling ideas on scrap paper!
If you love Zentangle style coloring pages, Super Coloring has over 50 different designs for you to enjoy. There are birds, lions, flowers, dragons, mermaids, Christmas trees, and more. Many of these free adult coloring pages remind me of Valentina Harper’s adult coloring books, so I’d definitely suggest bookmarking this page if you’re a fan of her work.
Most websites that talk about handmade Mother’s Day gifts have ideas for young children to make, but I think moms appreciate a sentimental DIY project no matter how old their children are. (I know my mom has always been a sucker for a handmade gift!)
If you love adult coloring books, why not thank your mom for all she’s done to encourage your creative side by making a gift using on of your finished pages? Here are some ideas:
- Handmade greeting cards she can use to write notes to her friends
- Decorated jar filled with healing salve made from beeswax, coconut oil, and your mom’s favorite essential oils
- Origami flowers to display on a shelf or mantle
- Magnets for her refrigerator
- A pretty bookmark to tuck inside her favorite romance novel
- Altered Altoids tin with a gift card from her favorite store tucked inside

Arteza, a manufacturer of markers, colored pencils, and other art supplies, is offering a free 48-page adult coloring book on their website. You’ll need to provide your address and email after adding the freebie to your cart, but no payment method is needed to check out.
The selection of designs includes florals, abstract geometric patterns, mandalas, and more of beginner to intermediate level difficulty. I’d take advantage of this free PDF coloring book offer ASAP, however, since there seems to be no expiration date listed.

One of my favorite things about the adult coloring craze is the number of amazing freebies you can find online. Even if your budget doesn’t allow you to purchase any coloring books, you could color all day using nothing but free printables!
Fave Crafts has a free book for you to download featuring 15 different printable designs — ranging from mandalas and simple geometric patterns to flowers and other nature inspired images. Many of the designs are small enough that you could easily cut them out and make your own handmade greeting cards when you’re finished.
If you’re feeling blue, there’s nothing like a new coloring page to brighten your mood. Celestrial’s Pencil has a number of gorgeous free inspirational adult coloring pages for you to color and print, including the “Grow the Glow” design featured above. This heart design makes me think of Valentine’s Day, but it’s actually appropriate for any time of year. I think the message is one we all need with so many terrible things happening in the world today.
If you love this artist’s style, there are also several adult coloring books that you can purchase on her website. The books appear to feature a range of seasonally inspired images, as well as flowers and other nature designs.
