Construction Coloring Page

Construction-loving kids rejoice! For this month’s coloring page, Melanie Hope Greenberg shares this fun, printable construction coloring page (for free, of course!) featuring trucks and workers.

Construction coloring page by children's book illustrator

The illustrations of the dump truck, digger and cement mixer along with the workers on the scaffolding are from Melanie’s dummy sketches for the book Good Morning Digger by Anne Rockwell. Melanie has an informative post about creating dummies on her website. Her insight into how picture books are made is always so interesting. Good Morning Digger, about a child watching the transformation of a construction site to a community center, is currently a Scholastic Book Club selection.

Extra Fun: Like many of Melanie’s monthly coloring pages, this one can be turned into a craft. Cut out the trucks, turn them into play figures by gluing onto cardboard or onto a craft stick. How fun it would be to read the book and then create a play scene based on it.

    My son has a current obsession with tractors and construction (we recently had a construction zone breakfast). IAnd ‘ve set up a play station for him dedicated to this very topic. Think I will be printing this page to add to his station as well :) Thanks for sharing!
