Free Printable Olympics Coloring Pages
The Olympic games are an international sports festival that began in Ancient Greece and is held every four years. The idea behind these sports games is to help contribute to a peaceful and better world by educating people, through sport and excellence, and ultimately contribute to world peace. There are Summer and Winter Olympics, both held in different seasons.
During these competitions, athletes practice one or more of these sports: basketball, baseball, tennis, climbing, softball, surfing, athletics, boxing, gymnastics, karate, golf, archery, volleyball, fencing, rowing, swimming, wrestling, and so many more!
Let’s start our free printable Olympics themed coloring sheets.

Olympic Rings Coloring Page
The first coloring page features the famous Olympic rings; the Olympic flag has a white background and has five interlaced rings in the center. Color these rings with blue, yellow, black, green, and red crayons! Rings are a symbol of the five continents of the world, and the six colors (including white) appear on all the national flags of the world. This fun printable activity works best for toddlers and kindergarteners.
Olympic Torch coloring Page
Our second coloring page features the Olympic Torch. The Olympic torch relay is a symbol that represents the start of the Olympic ceremony, which ends with the lighting of the Olympic cauldron. This flame continues to burn for the duration of the Games, until the closing ceremony. I think watercolors would look great on this coloring page! This cartoon coloring sheet is ideal for older kids.
