10 Craft Ideas To Do With Family Coloring Pages

Here are 10 affordable, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!

10. Wall Art

For the most basic – yet heartfelt – craft, have your kid or students turn one of my family coloring pages into wall art that any parent would be proud to display.

Have your kids choose an illustration that correlates the most with their family, and use high-quality markers, colored pencils, or crayons to color it in.

Then you can buy cheap picture frames from the dollar store, frame the finished illustrations and hang them on the wall somewhere prominent.

9. Cake Toppers

For a cute birthday cake topper for Mom or Dad, have the kids color in the family coloring page that most resembles your family.

Then have them cut it out; you will need access to a laminator so that the figures are both reinforced and protected from the icing.

After the family group is laminated, you should be able to just stick it into the top of the cake a quarter of an inch to a half inch, and it should stand upright.

8. About My Family Fact Sheets Or Booklets

If you’re a teacher doing a lesson on families, you can use my coloring pages to have kids create ‘About My Family’ fact sheets or booklets.

Have them pick an illustration (or multiple, if you’re making a booklet) that closely resembles their own family structure.

They’re going to color it in and then write facts about their family in the blank spaces.

That could include, “My mom was born in XXXX, and my dad was born in XXXX,” or “My sister was born in XXXX, and I was born in XXXX.”

Or, “My mom is a (insert job here), and my dad is a (insert job here).”

7. Mosaics

For a sweet craft that will get kids’ fine motor skills firing, turn my family pages into cute mosaics using bits of construction paper.

For older kids, you can use smaller pieces; younger kids will likely be better off working with bigger pieces of paper.

Encourage the kids to fill in the lines as realistically as possible, like using black or brown bits of paper for darker hair or yellow for blonds.

6. Greeting Cards

Another cute use for my family coloring pages is to turn them into greeting cards, especially if your little ones color in the illustrations.

You can print it out on the half-page (with a quick fold in half) or the quarter-page (with a fold in half and again so that the illustration is on the front).

Either way, the handmade gesture is sure to be cherished for years to come.

5. Family Mobiles

One way to get a child excited about a new baby brother or sister is to have them help you create a mobile to go over the crib.

You’ll want to shrink the illustration(s) of your choice down to size (anywhere from a few inches to four or five inches).

Then you’ll get your child to color in the figures and cut them out. You can cut each figure out individually or use multiple family units altogether.

You’ll need an embroidery hoop and lots of string; you can poke holes in the tops of the figures and tie pieces of different lengths of string through the holes.

Then you’ll connect the string to the embroidery hoop (which you can decorate by having your child wrap yarn around).

4. Stick Puppets

To play family, your child can create stick puppets with my coloring pages.

You might want to shrink the illustration down a bit first, print it off and then have your kid color in the figures and cut them out.

You can paste craft sticks to the back as-is, but you might want to reinforce the figures with cardstock (place the figures down on the cardstock and trace around them).

3. Wrapping Paper

For a small box or item that is going to a parent for Father’s or Mother’s Day or a grandparent for their birthday, you can use my family pages as wrapping paper.

It will mean so much more that your child took the time to color in the illustration before wrapping it!

Simply pick an illustration where the family unit resembles your own and lay it face-down for wrapping so that the picture is on the outside.

2. Valentine’s Day Cards

If you’re a teacher and you need a craft for Valentine’s Day, have your students make Valentine’s Day cards for their parents (who tend to get forgotten on this day of love!).

Have your students pick the coloring page that most resembles their family unit and color it in.

Then have them write a sweet message in the blank space and get them to be creative and draw hearts and flowers around the family.

1. Dioramas

If you’re a teacher or homeschooler doing a lesson on family, you can have students create family dioramas using my coloring pages.

They will need a cardboard box set on its side so that the opening faces out. The students can decorate it to look like their house or the park, or wherever they want.

Then they’ll color in the family figures and cut them out, leaving a half-inch of paper below – this is going to be folded back and used to glue the figures into place.

Elmer’s glue or rubber cement will do the trick, and they’ll have an adorable keepsake of their family.
