thomas and percy coloring pages

Two new coloring pages to add to LQ’s growing collection! I couldn’t believe I had never drawn Thomas the Engine, from the eponymous Thomas and Friends. LQ also requested Percy, from the same show.

thomas and friends coloring pages

In my ongoing effort to produce coloring pages for all of LQ’s favorite characters, I made two more engines from Thomas & Friends: Emily and James. In this time of self-quarantine, perhaps you or a child you know could take solace in coloring some trains.

dinosaurs & coloring pages

Some recent dinosaur drawings. I left the last four black and white in case you’d like to print and color them. In case you check only this blog and fear I have fallen off the planet, fear not: I post regularly to my Instagram account: @kidshaycomics

coloring pages, part 3

In my ongoing quest to make all of LQ’s favorite fictional characters available as coloring pages, I present the latest batch. Bash, Dash and Ferdinand are from Thomas & Friends. Jumpy is a late addition, considering she is one of LQ’s very favorite characters and figures prominently in her day-to-day mental life. She is a motorcycle from the Amazon show Stinky & Dirty. Finally, Otis the tractor is a book character, starring in his own series of picture books.

As always, feel free to download and color these yourself. I’d love to see other people’s takes on these (in our house, at least) quintessential characters.

recent coloring pages

Per LQ’s requests, I’ve drawn up a whole new batch of coloring pages. These characters are featured in Thomas & Friends, a decades-long saga about the trains (and a few other vehicles) that keep the beautiful island of Sodor running.

Feel free to print and color. Please share your results with me! These are not for sale in any way since I do not own the rights and have no wish to be sued by Sir Topham Hatt.

coloring pages: scuffy and tootle

I’m separating these coloring pages because these are far and away LQ’s favorite characters. Scuffy and Tootle are each the star of their respective Little Golden Book. Both books are written by Gertrude Crampton and illustrated by Tibor Gergely. My undying gratitude goes out to them; they created characters that truly captured LQ’s heart and imagination.

coloring pages

A favorite activity for LQ and me is drawing at the dining room table. Lately she’s been into coloring pages. I found some online, but most of the characters she loves best do not have readily available coloring pages. I decided to remedy this situation by creating our own coloring pages.

I’m sharing them below in case you or a kid you love wants to spend some time coloring. I own none of these characters, so I am not selling them. Please take them as they are intended: loving tributes. LQ certainly enjoys coloring her favorite characters.

Dirty, from Kate and Jim McMullen’s series
Stinky, from Kate and Jim McMullen’s series
Mighty, from Kate and Jim McMullen’s series
Sender, from the cartoon “Stinky and Dirty,”
which is based on Kate and Jim McMullen’s book series
Supertruck, from the book of the same name, by Stephen Savage.
I’ve read this book to LQ hundreds of times.
Supertruck is her first superhero crush.
Garfield, of course. By Jim Davis.
