Who says you’re too old to color?
If you have tweens and teens at home or attending your holiday event, you can make sure they have fun with these free printable Thanksgiving coloring pages.
With 3 older boys in the tween and teen age range, I know how challenging it can be to keep them entertained during holiday gatherings.
Coloring is actually an activity that your tweens, teens, and adults can enjoy. Especially for a special holiday like Thanksgiving!
These Thanksgiving coloring pages are so much fun that you might even want to consider printing out an extra set for yourself (and other adults) so that you can get your creative juices flowing!
Why Coloring Is a Terrific Activity for the Holidays
When you’re preparing for the holidays, it’s smart to have a variety of activities for different ages and stages. Instead of plopping down in front of the television or other screens, have some easy ways to keep younger and older kids busy.
Coloring activities are awesome for simple holiday fun. You only need a few supplies and printables for hours of creative entertainment.
Gather your Thanksgiving coloring materials, like:
- Color pencils
- Oil pastels
- Markers (wide- and thin-tipped)
- Kwik Stix (or other tempera paint sticks)
- Watercolor brush pens (for a super cool effect!)
- FREE printables!
Although coloring is often associated with younger kids, your tweens and teens can have a blast with these types of activities. Coloring is a fantastic way to relax, slow down, and enjoy a bit of creativity.
These types of coloring printables are also great to have available for tweens and teens who are in that in between stage – don’t feel comfortable hanging out with adults or playing with younger kids.
Of course, adults can totally have fun with these Thanksgiving coloring pages, too! Make sure to have plenty of copies for all to enjoy.

Having a coloring contest! You can have different themes and “awards” based on coloring style, neatness, creativity, brightness, and more.
