Please feel free to download and print these children’s colouring sheets! I created these activities a few years ago, whilst working on a practical, hands-on, children’s guide to Islamic art. Sadly, my publisher was unable to complete the project due to financial reasons, so the book never made it to publication. However, I do still have my sketches and completed artwork, which could be a lot of fun for kids to complete!

These images work best when printed on a slightly heavier weight A3 paper, e.g. cartridge paper or thin card (around 120 – 150 gsm, or as thick as your printer can manage!) Thicker paper or card will allow for easier use of paints on the surface.

Enjoy colouring!
