FREE Printable Family Tree Coloring Page

Posted by  ·  June 13, 2018  ·  Last Updated: October 1, 2018

Learning about the family tree can be so much fun for children!  Young children especially love to see how the family tree is all connected.  Who is dad’s dad?  Who is mom’s mom?  Working with younger grades doesn’t require a bunch of genealogy research, and this free printable family tree is the perfect size to get you started!

Simple Family Tree Chart

Get out the crayons and have some fun talking about your family history.  Each circle has a name, and each name has a great story or a funny memory attached to it!  This is a three generation family tree and has spots for just the basic family members–including the child.  It is not a detailed genealogy chart, but it is a perfect coloring page for kids. A family tree project is a great way for children to learn where they came from and who their ancestors are.  Kids love to hear the story of how mom and dad met, and what a great opportunity to learn a little more about grandparents and their special stories too.

Printable Blank Family Tree

Download and print on white copy paper.  If you are looking for a more substantial keepsake it can be printed on heavier weight paper or even cardstock.  Heavier paper or cardstock is best if the child prefers markers for coloring. We like to use a mix of colored pencils and gel pens at our house. They provide lots of color and allows for small details.

I think the hand drawn faces on the tree are such a special touch, but a simple name (or both) will also make a fabulous display!

I hope that you will enjoy this coloring page.  I hope that it will provide you with an opportunity to have some sweet conversations about your family.  You might also like these free coloring pages for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Grandparents Day.  They make wonderful handmade gifts to give from a child.

    Hi There!

    I LOVE your rpintables! The most recent one of the family tree is adorable. When I print it, it is not as clear as your other printables. I click the link to print a clear tree, your website on the bottom right corner is very clear, but the family tree, etc. is lighter gray and pixel-ie.
    Could you please send me a nice clear copy?

    Thank you so much!

    Hi! I love your coloring pages, but the family tree doesn't fit my modern family. I am a single mom who has chosen to adopt 2 children (from birth who were in foster care) by myself. I have a successful career and am very independent. While a dad my fit our lives one day, it's not a reality right now. I would love a more generic tree so that my 2 little ones could fill in our family. Thanks for the cool coloring pages. We really loved the solar eclipse one last. We live right in the heart of where it passed over.
