I remember being an 11-year-old kid when I first read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling. And I was hooked immediately. Harry is 11 years old in the first book, and for one reason or another, I have always believed that Harry and I were the same age. I identified with the characters in the book, and I thought that if I were at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, I would be in the same year as Harry. And we would have been best friends. There are a few problems with my reasoning, considering I do not live in England, have magical powers, and the whole thing is fiction. But a child can dream, can’t they?
Needless to say, Harry Potter has changed the world and captured the imagination of millions. Naturally, your little artists will want to color some Harry Potter coloring pages. The world of Harry Potter is rich, diverse, and completely magical. The characters are just as imaginative and loveable. So, if you have a little witch or wizard in training, find your favorite pictures and get the crayons ready for some Harry Potter coloring sheets.
About Harry Potter
JK Rowling published the seven books of the Harry Potter Series in 10 years. From 1997 to 2007, families devoured these books and anxiously awaited each new addition to the series. The series started from humble beginnings, just like Harry, but soon the Harry Potter fever took over the world. The books have sold hundreds of millions of copies and inspired an entire Harry Potter Media Franchise worth billions of dollars. Now, there are places like Harry Potter Land, and you can buy your replica wand and even take an online quiz to be sorted into a Hogwarts house. If you somehow have not experienced Harry Potter, I urge you to remedy the situation immediately.
Coloring the World of Harry Potter
Harry Potter has many unique and memorable characters, but Harry and his two best friends are the most important. Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger accompany Harry through thick and thin in all of his adventures. Most Harry Potter coloring pages will almost certainly contain at least one of these characters. You child will love coloring these three as they sneak about Hogwarts castle at night, face down evil wizards and monsters, or enjoy a game of Quidditch together. Be sure to print out a coloring page featuring Harry, Ron, and Hermione in their most iconic scenes.
Harry has many other friends in the series. Perhaps none more important than his aged headmaster, Albus Dumbledore. Your kid will love coloring Dumbledore as he is the epitome of a wizard with his long silver beard and half-moon spectacles. Hagrid is another critical friend to Harry. This gigantic guardian is a treat to color with his wild beard, massive appearance, and heart of gold. Other friends and mentors are Professor McGonagall, Sirius Black, and Remus Lupin, to name a few.
Harry has many other friends besides Ron and Hermione. The other members of the Weasley family, like Fred, George, and Ginny, are fun red-haired characters to color. Others, like Luna Lovegood, Dobby the house-elf, and Neville Longbottom are loved because of their oddities.
Harry doesn’t just have friends, though. Harry has multiple antagonists of varying threat levels. Perhaps at the lowest level are the Durselys. Vernon and Petunia are Harry’s Uncle and Aunt, and their son Dudley relentlessly bullied Harry growing up. At school, Harry often faces off with Draco Malfoy and his cronies, Crabbe and Goyle. But the most dangerous of Harry’s enemies is the infamous Lord Voldemort. Voldemort, the potent dark wizard, is obsessed with finding and destroying poor young Harry. Each of these villains is an excellent subject for hours of coloring fun.
