Who doesn't love a carnival? The exuberant celebrations, the music, the colors, the dancing in the streets! Your lucky kids can now join the festivities with this lively carnival coloring page.
The carnival scene coloring page was designed for us by artist Melanie Hope Greenberg, who has been contributing unique, monthly coloring sheets for your kids to this blog for 10 years!
Carnival musicians, dancers, and jesters parade down the block and revel in front of a stage festooned with bunting, balloons and string lights. It could be Mardi Gras, or Rio Carnival, or even the biggest block part of the year.
No doubt your kids will want to use aaallllllll the colors in their crayon box to jazz up the scene. After they are done, use a glue stick or some tape to fix the coloring page to a piece of cardboard and prop it up as a backdrop for some pretend play.
