Daily Extra: Free "Animals of the World" Coloring Book Pages

I just came across a link to this artist's page from a craft blog, and had to share! Australian artist Louise Elliott sells washable doll and animal kits, including her "Animals of the World" designs -- and for each one, she has a free downloadable coloring book page! She is also running a contest each month for kids to e-mail in their colored version of that month's animal, to be entered into a drawing to win the kit for that animal. But even if you don't want to enter the contest, kids should enjoy coloring these beautiful, unique pictures. And if you're crafty, you may enjoy making an animal from one of the kits.

Make sure to scroll down to see all of them! My personal favorite is the kangaroo, a portion of which is shown here. (Please remember that this image is copyrighted by the artist.)

I did a test print-out, and found that the following worked to get a nice full-sized coloring page:
  • Right-click on the picture
  • Choose "Save picture as..."
  • Save the file to your computer as a jpg (and close the web page if you like)
  • Go under "My computer" and locate the file where you just saved it
  • Double-click the file name to open it
  • Click "print". On my computer, this brought up a "Photo Printing Wizard". Click "next" and make sure the correct picture is selected, choose a printer, and choose one of the full-page printing options. Even if your computer doesn't have a "Photo Printing Wizard", you should hopefully still have an option to print the page at full size.

Where: Louise Elliott Design
