10 Craft Ideas To Do With Soldier Coloring Pages

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

10. Thank You Cards For Soldiers

You can turn our soldier pictures into thank-you cards for actual soldiers, which you can present to them in person or send overseas as part of a care package.

To use the pictures, you’re going to copy and paste the entire illustration into a word processor document that has been oriented to landscape.

Center the picture on the right-hand side so that it takes up half the page and prints.

Have your kids color in the picture and then fold it in half so that the illustration is on the front page.

Then your kids can write a thank you message inside.

9. Memorial Day/Veterans Day Posters/Advertisements

Whatever your business, when there is a national holiday that involves soldiers, you can use our pictures as part of your posters or advertisements.

For example, if you’d like to create a graphic to share on social media for Veterans Day, you can use one of our soldier pictures to illustrate your point.

They can also be used for sales ads, announcements for a change in store hours, or announcements for special sales, among many other purposes.

8. Veterans Day Is Important Because… Crafts

It’s important to teach kids to respect and value our nation’s veterans, and you can help do that with this craft.

You’ll need an extra-large piece of construction paper. On one side, you’re going to have the kids color in and cut out one of our soldiers.

On the other, they’ll briefly write out why, in their opinion, Veterans Day is important. If they’ve never thought about it before, it’ll be a good mental exercise.

Hang up the finished product along the hall or classroom or, if you’re doing this activity at home, on your fridge or wall.

7. Paper Dolls

Your kids can hold pretend battles with our soldiers; they’ll just pick the ones they want to use, print them out, color them in, and cut them out.

I recommend printing it out onto cardstock or reinforcing the computer paper with construction paper or even poster board for improved durability.

6. Calendars

You and your kids can create a special calendar to count down the days until a loved one returns from duty.

To do this, you’re going to copy and paste the illustrations you want to use into a word processor document that’s been oriented to landscape. Print them out and color them in.

Next, you’ll create the actual calendar grids for each month you’re making; you can do this on the computer as well or manually using a ruler.

Arrange the pages so that, when opened, the calendar shows the picture up top and the grid below.

Take a three-hole punch to the pages and connect with O-rings.

Then, you’ll want to punch a hole at the top of the pages so that you can hang up your calendar.

5. Camo Mosaic Crafts

For this craft, you’ll need bits of construction paper in different shades of green – armor green, olive, light green, etc.

You’re going to fill in the camo on a soldier in our pictures using the scraps of paper, gluing them into place.

Color in the rest of the picture, too. This is a great craft for kindergarten through grade school.

4. Soldier Silhouette Crafts

For this craft, you’ll print out one of our soldier’s pictures onto black cardstock. You should still be able to see the lines, so cut out the main figure.

You’re going to paste it onto a piece of white, green, or even brown construction paper, then frame it.

You can also add cut-out letters to spell your soldier’s name or their dates of service.

3. Kids’ Faces Solider Crafts

Turn your kids into little soldiers with this cute craft.

Pick a picture where the soldier is facing outward and print it off. Using sharp scissors or an X-acto knife, you’re going to remove that soldier’s face.

Cut out the child’s face from a physical photograph and paste it from under the page, so that their face is looking outward from the picture.

Have your kids color in the rest of the picture and then mount it onto a piece of construction paper.

2. Soldier Outline Crafts

Flip through magazines and newspapers to find patriotic or military-themed items – flags, camouflage, tanks, etc.

Then you’re going to print out one of our soldier pictures and, using an X-acto knife, remove the soldier from the picture.

It seems counterintuitive, but you’re going to take the page with the cut-out and glue the items you’ve found to it so that the flag/tank/camo shows through from under. 

Once you’ve finished “filling in” the soldier cut-out, mount the page on a piece of green construction paper or poster board.

1. Military-Themed PowerPoints

Whether you’re giving a presentation that is military-themed in nature or you’re maybe trying to convince your parents to let you enlist, you can use our soldier pictures to bolster your PowerPoint.

our free-to-use pictures are ideal for this sort of thing, as they can be cut down, colored in (digitally), and used in part or in whole.
