On this page, you will find 24 unique flamingo coloring pages that are all free to download and print! Flamingos are known the world over for their unique bodies and vibrant pink feathers that have made them instantly recognizable.
For this series, I illustrated many flamingoes in different styles and levels of difficulty that will appeal to all ages. Included are prints with two flamingoes making a heart with their necks, cute kawaii flamingoes, simple-to-color ones, flamingo mandalas, plus many others!
While these printables make for a fun and free craft activity, they can also be used in the classroom or at home to teach children about these incredible birds. Once the coloring page is complete, it can then be hung as artwork, used in a class project, or even for some fun summer party decorations!
To start coloring, click on any of the below images or links to open the free PDF. Once opened, you can then download or print. All of the below pages are on US letter-sized paper, but they also scale perfectly onto A4 paper too! Happy coloring!
10 Craft Ideas To Do With Flamingo Coloring Pages
Here are 10 inexpensive, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!
10. Cake Toppers
For a cute flamingo-themed birthday party (or any party, really), consider turning one of my illustrations into a cake topper!
Print off the flamingo you want and color it in, minus the legs; you’ll also want to cut it out carefully along its outline, but you can forgo the legs.
Then laminate it so that it can withstand being plunked into the cake.
Place it atop a pink and white cake by simply pushing it in until it stands upright.
9. Feathery Flamingos
For a fun craft that is easy and cute, print off the flamingo illustration of your child’s choosing.
Get pink feathers – you can buy them online at Amazon or find them at your local craft store (your dollar store might have bags of feathers; if so, you’ll have to fish out the pink ones).
Then, using Elmer’s glue or rubber cement, have kids place them onto the flamingos’ bodies; they can cover the entire body or just the wings.
Finish them off by coloring in the rest of the flamingos. You can also frame the finished product!
8. Party Decor
If your little one – or you yourself – wants a flamingo-themed birthday party, get them in on the decorating action by having them color in some illustrations.
Starting a few weeks before the big party, sit them down with pink crayons or markers and have them shade in the flamingos a few at a time.
You can laminate them for more durability or even reinforce them with cardstock.
You might opt to cut them out and use them to make bunting or give them little placards to advise guests as to what each food item is.
You could make them part of the centerpieces on the table or simply hang up the illustrations on the walls for a festive look.
7. Tissue Paper Flamingos
To make a 3D flamingo out of my coloring pages, you could also use pink tissue paper.
You can get tissue paper at any dollar store, so in addition to being cute, this craft is also highly economical.
Cut the tissue paper into two-to-three-inch squares; you’re going to pinch the square in the middle and bunch it up a bit.
Then glue it down to the paper on the body of the flamingo. Repeat until the body is filled.
Flamingos make perfect bookmark adornments, thanks to their long legs.
You might want to shrink down the illustration before printing it off, though, so that it’ll fit into books better.
Have your kids color in the flamingo of their choice – just the flamingo, from head to foot.
Then, if they’re older, they can cut, or if they’re younger, you can cut the flamingo along its outline.
If you have a laminator, that would be even better so that the bookmark is more durable, or you can reinforce it with cardstock.
You can use its head and beak to “hook” onto the page you want to save!
5. Gift Bag Decorations
Elevate a boring old gift bag basically for free if you have all the supplies on hand.
Have your kids choose a flamingo coloring page that they like, print it off and decide whether you want to affix just the flamingo or the whole page (if the bag is larger).
Get the kids to color it in and either cut out the flamingo for pasting or paste the illustration whole onto the bag, centering it.
If you’re using a flamingo cut-out, you might consider gluing the figure on so that the head pokes up at the top of the bag.
4. Flamingo Straws
For this cute little craft, you’ll need to shrink the flamingo illustration of your or your kids’ choice so that the main figure is about three inches tall.
Print it off, color it in, and carefully cut it out (no legs necessary).
Now, if you’re the parent, you’ll need to take a hole punch and put two holes into the body vertically, about half an inch apart.
The straw should then slide into the holes.
3. Greeting Cards
Turn my flamingo coloring pages into greeting cards, perfect for Mother’s Day, a summer party invite, or even a bridal or baby shower.
You can either shrink the illustration down to a half page or shrink it down to a fourth of a page (and fold it twice to create the card).
You can tie in the flamingo to the occasion with a message on the inside like, “Tickled pick that baby girl will be joining us soon!” or “Get ready to Fla-mingle!”
2. Flamingo Mobiles
My flamingo coloring pages can be turned into cute mobiles, perfect for a baby’s nursery or a big kid’s bedroom.
You’ll need to shrink down and print off five or six flamingo illustrations, then have your kiddo go to work coloring in just the figures.
Cut them out carefully and either punch or poke holes into the tops of the bodies. Attach different lengths of string to the holes and then tie them off to an embroidery hoop.
1. Flamingo Canvas Totes
For this craft, you will need a Cricut machine!
Print off the flamingo you want onto press-on vinyl and then feed it into the Cricut machine on its print and cut setting.
Once you have the flamingo separated from the rest of the illustration, you can iron it onto your canvas tote (or t-shirt or sweatshirt or whatever!).
