Free printable Olympics coloring page
The Olympic Games are an international sports festival that began in Ancient Greece and takes place every four years. The idea behind these sports games is to contribute to a peaceful and better world through education, sport and excellence and ultimately to contribute to world peace. There are summer and winter Olympics, both of which take place at different times of the year.
During these competitions, the 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 much more !
Let’s start with what you might need to enjoy this coloring sheet.

Materials needed for Olympic coloring pages
This coloring page is designed for standard letter printer paper dimensions – 8.5 “by 11”.
Olympic rings coloring pages
The first coloring page shows the famous Olympic rings; the Olympic flag has a white background and has five intertwined rings in the middle. Color these rings with blue, yellow, black, green and red colored pencils. Rings are a symbol of the world’s five continents, and the six colors (including white) appear on all of the world’s national flags. This fun printable activity is best for toddlers and kindergarten kids.
Olympic Torch coloring page
Our second coloring page shows the Olympic torch. The Olympic torch relay is a symbol that represents the beginning of the Olympic ceremony, which ends with the lighting of the Olympic cauldron. This flame will continue 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 great for older children.
