Mushroom Coloring Sheets
These easy coloring pages have lot of white space in the background. Let your kids get creative and add details to create their own scene.
More mushrooms, woodland animals, and different plants can all be drawn in the blank spaces.
Did you know that the part of the mushroom that we see above the ground is only a small part of the fungi?
A whole underground network called mycelium grows underground in the dirt. When the fungi is ready to spread spores, it produces mushrooms above ground.
Spores are then released by these structures. New fungi can form if the spores land in the right locations.
Fall is a great time to head out side for a mushroom hunt. You can spot them all year round, but fall is when many varieties can be spotted in the forest.
Your kids can color the large mushroom above then label the different parts. In this realistic coloring page you can spot the gills, cap, and stem.
Pair these free printables with a few children's books about mushrooms and fungi. Books are a great resource when learning about new topics.
If learning about fungi with your kids, the Humongous Fungus book is a must read. Bright and colorful and filled with information about fungi living within the forest.
Books are a wonderful way to learn about topics in nature. Read them together, then head outside to observe mushrooms around your area.
I like to include at least one of these color and write pages within each coloring page set. Perfect for young children who are practicing writing letters.
Coloring is a great way to practice fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Large crayons or even paint are both great ways to color in these sheets.
