I wanted to put together something people could do from home and spend some time making art. That’s when I became intrigued with the idea of making my own coloring pages with the Procreate app.
I have three nature inspired coloring pages available now but I hope to keep adding more as time goes on.
I also thought it would be fun to start a little coloring contest! Or at the very least, to let people share their finished coloring pages. So if you’d like to submit your finished colored pages, check us out on Facebook or Instagram. Send us a message with a page you or your kids have colored. We’ll review them and post them to this page! It’ll be fun to see what people come up with.
So peruse the pictures below and print one out if it’s something that catches your eye.
I hope to add more over time so you’ll have a nice selection to choose from.

What Should You Use to Color Your Nature Inspired Coloring Pages?
There are so many options for coloring choices. I thought I’d run you through some ideas.
Crayola Little Squeaks
They’re fun for kids and have a fine point that makes them easier to color with. They’re also washable.
Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens
Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens are my all-time favorite pens. I used to go to art stores and buy one at a time to add to my growing collection of colors. They writes smoothly, don’t run out of ink quickly, and they look pretty on paper.
Prismacolor Premiere Pencils
I haven’t personally used this brand for colored pencils, but I have used other art supplies from them. These colored pencils come highly recommended and I imagine they are really nice quality art pencils. There are also options available with fewer pencils if you’re looking for something more affordable.
Staedtler Ergosoft Colored Pencils
These Staedtler colored pencils would be in a similar category as the Prismacolor ones. I haven’t personally tried these colored pencils, but I do love the Staedtler brand. These colored pencils also get really great reviews.
Crayola Color Sticks
This summer we were introduced to something new. We went to the Carnegie Museum of Art and the people working there had an art table set up. They were showing people how to do etchings. Instead of using crayons, they used something called color sticks. These color sticks look like crayons, but they’re actually made entirely of colored pencils. In fact, they’re marketed as woodless colored pencils.
They color very nicely and I like the way they feel. I think you’d understand if you got a chance to hold them in your hand. My daughter got some for Christmas and she loves them.
Of course, you can’t go wrong with a brand new 64 color box of Crayola crayons. I’ll bet you have memories of being a child and cracking open that box. All those unused crayons with all with perfect tips. That was everything.
Honey Sticks (Beeswax Crayons)
If you’re looking for a more natural option, you can get crayons made from honeybee wax. I’ll be honest, I didn’t even know this was something people made until we started caring for honeybees.
You can even make your own beeswax crayons with homemade natural dyes if you have a minute or two and the right materials.
If you want other options for beeswax crayons, you may consider checking out Etsy. Now is a good time to support small businesses and there are quite a few sellers that make and sell homemade crayons.
Those are my favorite picks for art supplies. I hope you enjoy coloring these nature inspired coloring pages and don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter so you can keep up to date with new posts.
Enjoy your time with your family while you’re social distancing. Make something. Do something creative — and don’t feel bad about taking a nap now and then.
