Colouring Books for All Ages

Colouring books inspire a child’s imagination while keeping them entertained in a productive way. You’ll find colouring books for kids at all levels of development. Choose easy-to-follow books with bold outlines and eye-catching patterns for the youngest children, or more intricate designs for older kids. Crisp outlines are easy to follow, which helps wee ones develop their motor skills as they practice colouring within these lines. For older children, look for high quality paper that allows them to use pencils, paint or pens for a more personalised touch.

Imaginative Topics

Today’s colouring books feature every theme under the sun, whether your child loves Disney or Marvel characters. Animals, monsters, princesses, and dinosaurs are just a few examples of the variety of themes you’ll find in the bestselling books. The Harry Potter colouring books feature gorgeous designs from the book and film series, while The Map Colouring Book inspires children to learn more about geography and far-off lands. Many top options feature characters from other book series, like the ever-popular We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and Peppa Pig.

Gifts and Activity Books

The Melissa and Doug brand is well-known for their art and craft supplies, and they provide delightful colouring books for kids of all ages with jumbo pages and brilliant graphics. Look for activity books from other big names like Crayola or GALT for colouring sheets combined with dot-to-dots and other puzzles. Whether you’re looking for a perfect Christmas gift or a way to fill those slow and rainy days, the best colouring books offer hours of entertainment.
