You can use a simple computer graphics program such as Paint or Photoshop, or hand draw your design and then scan it onto your computer. You can even find coloring pages online and use them to create your own coloring pages (make sure you don’t violate copyrights. Download for personal use only).

Here is a quick guide to making your own coloring page that you can print or save as a digital file that you can later change, edit, or combine with other drawings.


How to draw your own coloring page 

1. Trace your drawing on a piece of paper using a pencil (so you can easily make changes to it if you need to)

2. Once you’re happy with your drawing, trace over the pencil with a thicker-tip marker

3. Scan your drawing into a digital file (jpg/gif/png) and save on your computer

4. Start your graphics program and make changes to the drawing if you need to

5. When you’re done, print out your creation and color it! You can also send it to us at and we will be happy to upload it onto our website
