Monarch Butterfly Coloring Page

Do you know someone who loves butterflies? With their brilliant orange and black wings, monarch butterflies are probably the most iconic of these beautiful insects. Their colors are more than decoration. The bright orange surrounded by black, almost creating a stained glass effect, is meant to warn birds and other animals that it’s toxic to eat.

Did you know that the colors in a butterfly’s wings are mostly caused by melanin, the same thing that creates our own skin tones, tans, and freckles? Their wing patterns are almost always symmetrical, except for small differences from side to side – kind of like us!

Butterfly Coloring Pages

Ready to color your monarch butterfly? Grab your most vivid orange and go! We like to experiment with contrast. Next, pick your background colors. A light blue makes a great sky color, and yellow or red flowers really pop. Or try a yellow background and purple flowers!

You might color the background first. Then add your orange and other bright colors in later. This can help prevent smudges if you’re using soft crayons or pastels. But if you’re really ambitious, try printing this on a heavier weight paper and using watercolors!

One of the most fun parts of coloring is that everyone makes a picture their own. In the end, the choice is up to you!

Coloring Pages Are Fun

Make coloring time a family affair! Are your kids are looking for more fancy, detailed, or difficult pages to work on? We have a whole collection of amazing coloring pages for teenagers. These full size outlines are sure to challenge your older kids and result in gorgeous art.

Finally, don’t forget to download a free pdf coloring sheet for yourself! Mandala coloring pages are great stress relief and method of relaxation for all ages.
