Create a Color Explosion With Our Peacock Coloring Pages
So, which colors should you and your child focus on when working on these peacock coloring pages? The answer is as many as you want. Peacocks are beautiful birds with a complex color scheme. So, it’s up to your imagination and creativity to showcase each beautiful bird in all its glory.
That being said, peacocks tend to have a lot of green, turquoise, royal blue, golden, and purple colors in their plumage. These are all vibrant colors, which explains why peacocks can easily transform into the star of the show using their tail feathers. However, you can also add other colors to the mix to create an attractive color explosion that’s just as eye-catching as the real thing.
Let’s explore some fun facts about peacocks for the curious mind. The term peacock refers to the male version of this type of peafowl. The ladies are called peahens, and, unfortunately, they don’t have the striking feathery tails of their male counterparts. However, they don’t need them because they are the ones that need to be impressed.
A peacock will impress a peahen by fanning out its long tail to show off its iridescent colors and eye-like markings. This is how a peacock attracts a mate. It’s obvious that peacocks know how splendid they look because of the way they strut around with their feathery train on display.
That’s why people always say as proud as a peacock. But, of course, you and your child will also be proud of your art every time you finish a multicolor drawing.
Enjoy Color in a Fun Way
Each printable peacock coloring page includes at least one beautiful bird, so kids will need plenty of colored pencils and crayons. This is a great activity that will keep kids and adults entertained for hours on end. As mentioned, the idea is to play around with different color combinations so that each coloring sheet is unique and flashy.
For younger kids, this is a fast way to develop fine motor skills and color recognition. Not only that, but it’s just pure fun exploring the world of such beautiful birds. The eyespots on the peacock tails all look similar, but they have different color patterns.
Their feathery tails are not the only beautiful thing about peacocks. Altogether, peacocks are simply gorgeous creatures. They have long and elegant necks and a crown of feathers on their heads (crest). This makes each free coloring page a joy to work on, and a pleasure to behold once each piece of art is complete.
But, wait. If you want similarly beautiful coloring pages, there are more collections and categories to check out. For example, besides majestic peacocks, we have animal coloring pages that contain all sorts of beautiful creatures, including cute kittens, adorable puppies, friendly monkeys, and more.
These printable coloring pages are all free to download. In addition, we have coloring pages that explore many different themes, such as nature, superheroes, cars, holidays, and cartoons. You will not only experience an explosion of color but an explosion of ideas as well.
