Free Coloring Pages and Activities for Kids

Working at home can be tough with kids. But it's not only hard on us moms….it's hard on the kids too. They get bored. They don't understand mom having to be at the computer all the time, or on the phone.

I can remember my daughter being about 2 years old and she just had a fit every time I tried to work. I found myself trying to squeeze all my work into her napping schedule. It's hard to only have 2-3 hours to work! And that was back when I was trying so hard to get MoneyMakingMommy off the ground. So it was many late nights of work. Weekends were spent mostly working too because my husband was home and would keep the kids busy while I worked away in my little corner of the dining room.

It was a time of heavy burn-out and frustration. But I finally was able to strike some balance by finding things for the kids to do right there in the dining room with me while I worked.

There are lots of fun sites on the internet for little ones now. WebKinz are a huge hit. But Disney, Nickelodeon and Barbie all have interactive websites. There is also a great Polly Pocket site too. Those are big name sites for kids….but there maybe more that you've not heard of…so check out the list below. Club Penguin and Wizard101 are also the “latest”, greatest sites for kids to play on and they are interactive – so their friends can join them online. There are membership fees involved though.

But not all families have a free computer or ipad/tablet for kids to just “play” on. For years my work computer was THE family computer. Now I have a laptop that allows me to do just work on.

So…without a computer….video games…what can keep kids busy?

The prize winner….the easiest, cheapest thing for them to do is coloring. Coloring is easy and printing off free coloring pages makes it very affordable.

There is a wealth of fabulous free coloring pages on the internet. Free coloring pages are easy to use and provide a lot of entertainment for little ones. Coloring pages are printable on most sites and many include popular characters.

We've listed our favorite free coloring page sites below and we are always adding new free coloring page sites when we find them. Whether your child loves Phineas and Ferb, SpongeBob, Bratz, My Little Pony, Pooh Bear or Disney Characters, you are sure to find free coloring pages and printable coloring pages for your kids to enjoy.

So…grab some crayons, colored pencils or markers and start printing out some fun.
