Rainbow Coloring Pages – All-New Printable Sheets
A rainbow is always a happy sight, and the one on this rainbow coloring sheet is especially happy as it is joined by a bright shining sun.
This page should be an extra bright and vibrant happy scene once you have finished coloring it! We would try to use the brightest mediums and colors if we were coloring this one.
We especially think that colored pens and markers would be perfect, as they are some of the most vibrant mediums you can hope to use.
What colors and mediums do you think you will use?
We have a simple yet pretty rainbow design for you to color in for this next page. Just because the design is a bit simpler doesn’t mean that you can’t get really creative with it!
Rainbows in real life usually show off a specific set of colors, and while you could definitely use these classic colors, you should also feel free to use any colors you like.
You could also create a lovely scene by drawing a background to finish this one off in style. What are some ideas for a background scene that you could create for this one?
This rainbow coloring page shows a rainbow shining high up in the clouds. Stars dance around and one of the clouds smiles up at the pretty colors.
Did you know there is a special acronym for remembering the colors of the rainbow? Roy G. Biv stands for red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
Rainbows appear to have a beginning and end, like the one in this printable sheet. This one looks like it is coming out of two clouds.
However, rainbows are actually full circles. They look like an arch from where we are standing on the ground because we can’t see the full rainbow over the horizon.
There is music in the air for this next page. Rainbows are often associated with serenity and happiness, so we can only image that the song being played here must be a calm and happy one.
Do you have a favorite song that makes you happy every time you hear it? If you do, you could write the words of that song around the image here to make it even more personalized.
That would be one way to add some of yourself to this picture, but what else can you think of to take this picture to the next level?
There is a real feeling of love in this next page of our collection of free rainbow coloring pages for kids.
This rainbow is surrounded by some floating hearts, and this helps to give the page a lovely romantic feeling.
The hearts also give you lots of fun little details to color in, and we would use colors such as warm reds pinks and purples for these hearts.
You could even add some crafts such as stickers to the design to make it even more vibrant and fun to look at! What other fun ideas do you have for this love-filled page?
You can’t have a rainbow without water. Most people see rainbows from water droplets after it rains, but mist and spray from a river can also cause rainbows.
This coloring sheets shows a rainbow above a rushing river flowing in the clouds.
We love this rainbow coloring page of a heart ready for you to fill it in with all kinds of colors.
Stars twinkle in the background in front of a bunch of fluffy clouds.
Another scene filled with love and sunshine is here for you to color in this next image.
Once again, you could use all kinds of amazing bright colors for the rainbow, but then there is plenty to color as well!
You could color the sun with some colors like oranges, yellows and reds, and then you can color the pretty hearts.
Some of the details on this page are quite small, so you could use mediums such as colored pens and pencils in order to have more control over your coloring.
That’s what we would suggest, but what will you decide to use?
Next, you have another perfect opportunity to get out all of your favorite bright colors to create a truly wondrous and bright image.
Even though this sunny rainbow scene would look amazing with some brighter colors, you could also take a more subtle approach.
Using colored pens, markers, acrylic paints or similarly bright mediums would suit it really well, but there are softer mediums that would bring something to the image.
Some examples would be some colored pencils or watercolor paints, so don’t be afraid to experiment with more alternative mediums!
This is a very interesting coloring sheet. It shows a moon with a face above a beautiful rainbow.
Some people think they can see a face in the moon at night, but this is just an optical illusion. Rainbows are optical illusions too…
…and we couldn’t have this optical illusion without the sun. The light from the sun bounces off of water droplets to create rainbows.
The sun in this rainbow coloring page for kids has a smile on its face. It must be very happy to make a rainbow over the mountains.
The sun that is featured on this rainbow coloring printable is so vibrant and detailed!
It is surrounded by lots of small, rounded shapes and lines, and that gives you a lot of room to get nice and creative with it.
Some of these details are also quite small and fiddly like many of the other pages we have featured, so we would again recommend mediums that give you precision.
There is also a lot of empty space left in the background here, and that gives you lots of room to add any extra details and elements to finish it off!
This next page features an incredible scene that is topped off with a beautiful rainbow! We see a peaceful path leading into nature, and there are details such as bushes and trees to color.
For such a peaceful image, we would use some softer colors and mediums if we were coloring this one.
Examples would again be some watercolors or colored pencils, as these softer mediums help to create a peaceful feeling to the image.
We think that a softer look would be perfect, but do you think a brighter approach would be even better?
This rainbow coloring page shows two smiling little clouds in the sky.
A rainbow shines between them and it looks like little streams of diamonds are below one of the clouds. Stars sparkle in the background.
A huge shining sun smiles underneath a rainbow between two clouds in this coloring page. It looks like a beautiful day.
There is a grassy field with wildflowers growing and a bunch of big fir trees off to the side.
We have another beautiful scene for you to color, and it is one that is packed with so many details and elements to admire.
The sun has a really unique design in this one, and beneath it we have some rainy clouds, bushes and a tree.
When coloring a picture that has so much going on, it can be fun to try mixing different mediums.
For example, maybe you could use colored markers for the sun and rainbow and then use colored pencils for the clouds and natural elements. What other mediums can you think to use?
This rainbow coloring page features a well-known legend surrounding rainbows, and that is that you can find a pot of gold at the end of one.
This legend has Irish origins, and it is a common visual when it comes to rainbows. It also gives you the chance to use some lovely yellows and golds for the pot of gold!
