Simple rocket coloring page
Our first coloring page features a pilot flying a rocket in space among the stars. Kids can use their yellow and red crayons to color the ignition flames, gray for the rocket, and a pretty color for the stars. I love that this coloring page has lots of empty spaces so younger kids can use their big fat crayons to color inside the lines.
Realistic rocket ship coloring page
Our second coloring page features a realistic rocket taking off – did you know that a rocket needs to be going about 11 kilometers (7 miles) per second to enter orbit? That’s over 40,000 kilometers per hour (25,000 miles per hour)! We recommend coloring this page with watercolors to give the illusion of speed. And since there is a lot of empty space on the background, we suggest adding stars or even planets too!
