Kids have a love or hate relationship with balloons. At least I did when I was a kid. I was one of those kids that liked how the balloons looked but hated the loud noise when they started popping. So, my anxiety was always up whenever balloons were around. However, I know that many kids have no such reservations, and the popping doesn’t bother them. And, because balloons are such a whimsical and fun thing for kids, of course, we have a series of balloon coloring pages that your children will love.

Why We Love Balloons
I feel like one of the main reasons that balloons are so loved is because we associate them with celebrations. I mean, balloons are associated most with holiday parties, birthdays, weddings, and carnivals. What’s not to like? Your kids will love coloring the different festive surroundings in our balloon coloring pages.
As I grew, I quickly conquered my fear of balloons. I do not know how it happened, but I somehow became the designated balloon blower upper in my family. To this day, I will arrive at a party or celebration put on by a family member, and there will be several bags of balloons waiting for me. So I learned quickly that regardless of the party or celebration, balloons are more than likely appropriate. And that I was going to have that terrible tingling in the back of my jaw for most family parties.
Balloon Coloring Fun
An advantage of coloring pages that feature balloons is the versatility of color options. Your child can use any of their crayons for each balloon. The more, the merrier. There is no wrong way to color a balloon. You can use a balloon coloring page to help reinforce or practice colors with your toddlers or preschoolers. Or, older kids can improve their fine motor skills.
Often, balloon coloring pages will depict many balloons on strings floating in the air. As in the case of Disney’s Up and many other popular kids movies and shows, these bunches of balloons may send a loved character flying through the air. These coloring pages are fantastic for kids to use a lot of different colors to make a rainbow of colors in the flock of balloons.
Other balloon coloring pages showcase just a single balloon. Sometimes, it is just a regular round balloon that your kid can color their favorite color. Some balloons will have designs like stripes or polka dots. Other single balloons show distinct shapes like stars or hearts. You can also discover pictures of balloons with letters, words, or other messages on them.
As you peruse the options of balloon coloring pages, you will find that occasionally, a cute or loveable character is holding the balloons. Children will love coloring these adorable characters as part of the coloring sheet. Whether it is a well-known character from popular culture or just an endearing drawing, pictures of balloons held by an adorable bear, puppy, or unicorn will be an added treat to the fun.
Children will love coloring balloon coloring pages that depict the balloons as characters in the scene. Some of the coloring sheets will show personified balloons with smiling faces. These adorable pictures are sure to bring a smile to your child as they color them.
A hot air balloon coloring page is another popular option. You will love the scenes of one or more hot air balloons skimming the clouds as they travel through the sky. The majestic aircraft is fascinating and beautiful, even if it isn’t the most efficient mode of transportation. I have always wanted to be one of the passengers on a hot air balloon. If you or your child desire some hot air balloon pictures, then look into the beautiful collection featuring distinct designs and beautiful scenes.
