Dragons are either fierce or friendly in mythology, depending on whereabouts in the world they come from. The dragons in European myths and legends are scary and out to kill humans. Think about the dragons in Game of Thrones, they love their human owners, but can be trained as a fierce weapon to kill enemies. In medieval times, there were many tales of knights slaying dragons to save the people and famous stories have been told about them.
They usually can fly and swim and have sharp teeth and talons. However, in the Chinese mythology, dragons are helpful and people do not fear them. If you think about the dragon that comes out for Chinese New Year, he brings prosperity for the year ahead and people feed him and welcome him into their homes.
Our dragon coloring pages include the fierce European dragons as well as the friendly Chinese dragons, and many other types of dragons in between. We have dragon heads, and faces with little as well as lots of details. Children will enjoy doing the more cartoon like images that have a lot of white spaces as they need that space as they do not have the fine motor skills to be able to stay within very small spaces. This will develop overtime. Using pictures of creatures and animals that fascinate them (like dragons) is a really important way to keep them motivated to improve their skills. Having good fine motor skills and the brain development that accompanies it, are ways to improve their intelligence and school performance.
Coloring dragons is a great way to improve skills while having fun. You can color alongside them, either on the same picture, or you can find a dragon coloring page that is more suited to your level of interest and skill. They will learn from you as you talk to them about how you are trying to stay in the lines, and what colors you choose.
Younger children will be most drawn to our cute images such as Spyro, Cute Baby Dragons, Cute Dragon fire and other cartoon drawing style dragons. Older children will enjoy the more realistic close ups with details such as Dragon Face, Honorable Dragon and the Chinese Free Printable dragon pictures. Adults who want a challenge will find hours of tranquil entertainment with the realistic dragon and Chinese dragons, which have a lot of intricate details to color in.
So whether you want a friendly cute dragon for children or you want a mean and angry dragon, you will find the dragon that you want to color from our dragon coloring pages.
