Columbus Day is observed the second Monday of October each year here in the United States of America, and that date is quickly upon us! I created this set of Christopher Columbus coloring pages 7 years ago for my then little girls to color. During most of our history read alouds in those younger days, my girls would sit and color while I read page after page.
Those times are such wonderful memories for all of us!
Because these pages were a bit dated, I updated them for the 2022 fall season with a few new graphics and an updated writing font. Please re-download this set if you have the old version.

Christopher Columbus Coloring Pages
These coloring pages are in a fun mini-book style, which my girls always love.
Note that each mini-page has 1 picture with plenty of white room on the page for your young learner to add their own creativity and embellishments.
Also, there is a one-line handwriting practice area.
In this 14-page set, you’ll find the following pictures:
→ ‘Christopher Columbus’ cover page
→ Christopher Columbus
→ King Ferdinand with the Spanish flag of 1492
→ Queen Isabella with the Spanish flag of 1492
→ Santa Maria
→ Land! (Columbus using his telescope)
→ Native American boy
→ Native American girl
