The main challenges to coloring pictures of baseballs stem from the diversity among the players’ uniforms and the small details on them. Each baseball coloring page differs depending on the team or player featured. You also have variety in the baseball equipment used. Sure, baseballs typically come in white with red laces, but mitts for catching or fielding come in black, grey, brown, tan, or white. Bats vary, too. They aren’t all wood and many aluminum bats come in colorways, such as blue and silver, red and white, or purple and black. Some of the pictures we provide only show the equipment, so you might have a mitt, ball, and baseball bat to color lying on top of home plate or one of the three other bases.
We suggested using a diverse set of colors for these baseball coloring pages, so you can create color combinations with as detailed as the logos on the baseball uniforms. Some of these pictures may include backgrounds with neighborhoods, landscaping, bleachers, or stadium settings, especially if the baseball coloring sheets showcase the World Series. This requires a large set of crayons, colored pencils or pens, watercolor markers, or watercolors. More complex printable baseball coloring pages might show baseball fans in the grandstands or the full baseball diamond with the outfield. You’ll need a wide range of greens to perfect your outfield.
Older children might want to make their coloring page more like artwork. We suggest blending the colors to achieve a more realistic look for the baseball coloring page. We find using a stomp to blend waxy coloring media, such as oil pastel sticks, crayons, or colored pencils, works best. If you use watercolors on these baseball pictures, you can add a little water to your brush, then use it as if it had color on it to lighten a dark shade and blend it with other colors.
The baseball game scene typically takes up most of the page leaving you with little background to color. The colors you choose to use will vary depending on whether you color a cartoon baseball or a realistic coloring page of a baseball. The colors of the two baseball teams’ uniforms should differ. This makes it more realistic and makes it easier to tell them apart and follow the action in the picture.
Every coloring page is a picture that tells a story. The colors used and the way you use them determines how it conveys the story. You can print out multiple coloring pages and mount them in order to a poster board after coloring them to create a picture story. Add text beneath each printed page to add your own take to the story.
Have fun with these pages by adding other materials to them. We suggest asking your parents for a jar of small buttons. You can glue three tiny buttons to the front of each uniform to add a 3D effect. Another idea you can use lets you show the motion trail of the baseball. Using either silver or gold glitter glue, draw a line from the baseball to the batter and bat. When it dries, you’ll have a shiny motion trail that shows where your baseball traveled.
