Amazing Harry Potter Coloring Pages For Kids!
If you’re anything like our family, you and your children love the Harry Potter series- both the books and the film adaptation (although the books will always win it for me!) We love exploring the magical wizarding world for fun and in our homeschool; there is so much in the best-selling book series that has made homeschooling fun and educational at the same time.
We’ve got stuck into these free Harry Potter coloring pages (FREE download of 100+ pages at the end of this article!) and, thanks to the amazing ‘School of Magic’ Harry Potter Activities bundle (find your exclusive discount in your free Harry Potter coloring book download), we’ve spent time enjoying brilliant activities.
These activities include making magic calming jars and colouring-changing potions, exploring magical scientific ‘tricks’, learning about fractions with jellybeans and conversions with Sickles and Knuts, taking ‘flying’ lessons with Google Earth, and much more. We’ve also explored the history of photography after seeing the moving photos in Hogwarts and looked at aerodynamics in relation to broomsticks.
Of course, we’ve also enjoyed eating chocolate frogs and jellybeans inspired by Honeydukes sweetshop and the food trolley on the Hogwarts Express – the jellybeans are really not for the fainthearted! We are also hoping to visit the Harry Potter Studios very soon for a set tour. We have loved reading the Harry Potter books and watching a Harry Potter film at movie nights before enjoying coloring these pages and then getting stuck into fun Harry Potter activities.
I wanted to offer something to other wizarding fans, and I’m sure that Harry Potter fans and kids of all ages will love this BUMPER collection of 100 FREE printable coloring pages. The free pages feature intricate designs and favorite characters from the Harry Potter series such as Ron Weasley and the Weasley family, Sirius Black, Luna Lovegood and Lord Voldemort.
There’s also Hermione Granger and Albus Dumbledore as well as the Sorting Hat, the golden snitch and other magical creatures- and of course the main character! Personally one of my favorite characters is Draco Malfoy and the Malfoy family, just because of how well they are written and the character development- but that’s a controversial opinion in this house!
This collection of unique free printable Harry Potter coloring pages is a fun set that will bright light to a dull moment or rainy day, and is also brilliant for Harry Potter party ideas for a themed birthday party, and is a great way to practise motor skills in a fun way. My kids customized the different pages with hand lettering for added detail.
Simply download the Harry Potter coloring sheets (for personal use only) and use regular printer paper. They work brilliantly with felt tips, magic crayons or even watercolors if you have watercolor paper at home.
Before you scroll all the way down to grab your 100 coloring pages, I just wanted to share a bit more about how we’ve been spending our time with the School of Magic books– the best collection of Harry Potter activities I’ve found. These are created by a qualified teacher and home educating parent, and are designed to be 100% fun with hidden learning in every activity! They are ideal as homeschool curriculum or just for weekend fun, and are perfect as quality stocking stuffers!
There are currently 2 School of Magic activity books- the third will be out this year. The first accompanies the first Harry Potter book and the second accompanies the Chamber of Secrets. Here’s what your child will experience in the School of Magic book 1, as an example:
- Cast spells of invisibility with super science experiments
- Practise converting currency with Galleons and Sickles
- Send notes by owl
- Explore reflection and refraction, Snowy owls, aerodynamic, acids & alkalis in individual projects
- Create a cosmic calming jar
- Use transfiguration to transform words
- Hop on their broomstick to fly around the world and discover iconic landmarks
- Learn how to care for owls
- Learn how to draw dragons
- Study potions
- … and more!
Without realising, your child will be developing skills such as:
- Reading and comprehension skills
- STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematical) skills
- Critical thinking
- Imaginative & creative play
- Art & design
- Hand-eye co-ordination
- Maths facts and number skills
- Research and presenting data
When you purchase the School of Magic, not only do you get a wonderful learning experience for your child but you also get an extensive support document for yourself to help get the most out of the pack and I can honestly say it has been the most amazing home education resource for my kids. It’s also ridiculously low-priced for a book that contains weeks of activities (it also comes in instant download format)!
If you don’t need done-for-you, no-prep activities, some free ideas for Harry Potter themed extension activities for older kids include: make a Harry Potter word scramble; research J. K. Rowling, make Harry Potter trivia games and create themed paper crafts or old parchment style paper to write on.
Thank you for taking the time to read me sharing about all the amazing Harry Potter themed activities that have enriched our lives – I hope these new coloring pages and exclusive discount for the School of Magic packs enrich your time spent with your kids and provide a fun window into the wonderful world of witchcraft and wizardry!
