Free Printable Butterfly Coloring Page for Kids and Adults Post Preview: Looking for a fun coloring page for Spring and Summer? This post has a free Butterfly Coloring Page that is great for kids of all ages (and adults too)!
Butterflies are such cool members of the insect family. They come in so many different sizes, colors and patterns, and shapes. Well, the shapes of their wings, anyway. I always think that there is something borderline magical about butterflies.
Coloring can be a fun, creative, and relaxing activity for kids and adults alike. Whether it’s just for a downtime activity, a fun option between other activities, or a way to keep hands busy during a read aloud, coloring pages are great to have around.
Today, I have a fun and free Butterfly Coloring Page printable. It’s detailed enough for older kids and adults to enjoy it, while the whole scene is simple enough to make it welcoming for even very young children.

Detailed Butterfly Coloring Page for Kids and Adults
As I mentioned earlier, I love that this Butterfly Coloring Sheet is versatile. Because it appears to be simple, younger children can color it without becoming overwhelmed.
Of course, they might end up coloring some of the butterflies all in only one color, especially the smaller ones. But, do you know what? That’s okay! It’s their art to make how they wish.
In reality, this is a complex coloring page. Okay – yeah, it’s not as complex as those incredibly detailed adult coloring pages. But I have to be honest with you about those – they even make me feel overwhelmed. There’s no way I could sit down and work on one of those extremely detailed coloring pages.
Both children and adults can enjoy coloring in the patterns in the main butterfly in the center as well as the smaller butterflies in the background. You could color this page with crayons, colored pencils, markers, paint – whatever you want!
So, when you print out the free Butterfly Coloring Page for your children or students, maybe consider printing out one for yourself too!
