Our collection of 45 Holi coloring pages has just been added to celebrate the joyous occasion and spread festive cheer. These pages are designed for children and adults passionate about color and creativity.

Holi is a festival of colors celebrated annually in Nepal and India with regional celebrations worldwide. This holiday changes every year based on the Hindu lunar calendar. In 2024, Holi will be on March 24 and 25. This occasion marks the end of winter, the beginning of spring and the victory of good.

The festival lasts for two days. Everyone will throw natural colored powder and water balloons at each other. During Holi, people laugh, have fun and forgive each other regardless of age, gender and status. Our coloring pages come in various patterns inspired by the traditional Holi symbol. You will find scenes of people throwing colored powder at each other, dancing and playing music.

Some pages feature Holika Dahan campfire symbols, clay pots decorated with kanwats, Pichkari color gun or dhol drums. By coloring these pages, you can learn and explore the meaning behind the festival in depth. The Holi celebration also incorporates beautiful mandala designs suitable for adults who love meditative coloring activities.

You can print these pages and color them with your favorite colors. All coloring pages are free to print and download. You do not need to register or leave any personal information.

7 Creative Ideas We Can Do With Free Printable Holi Coloring Pages

Whenever I think about Holi, I remember applying colors using a pichkari gun to throw colors at each other. As someone who has experienced it, I will share creative ideas to celebrate Holi with coloring pages.

Design A Bookmark

This idea is perfect for those who love reading and creativity. You will choose our free printable coloring pages. Images can include people throwing colors at each other, dancing together or simply designing a mandala.

After printing on cardboard at a small size, you’ll use markers or water-based paint to add vibrant colors. The next step is to cut the colored details out of the page.

You will prepare a rectangular cardboard and paste the cutouts on it. Consider laminating your bookmark card to keep it durable and waterproof. At the top of the bookmark, you will punch a hole to thread the ribbon through and tie a bow. A finished bookmark will look similar to our illustration below.

Make Stickers

Stickers are a very easy craft to make using coloring pages. You will need the correct type of sticker paper and size adjustment on the printer.

After printing your favorite designs, color them with markers to make the sticker stand out. Finally, use scissors to cut out the images individually.

If you don’t have sticker paper, add double-sided tape to the back of each cutout. To use, peel off the sticker and stick it to your laptop, water bottle, phone case or any surface.

Create A Pop-up Card

Instead of making a regular Holi card, you can make it unique and surprise the recipient with coloring pages. First, you choose Holi coloring pictures with details easily converted into 3D pop-ups. Print coloring pages on thick paper for sturdiness.

You’ll use marks to add vibrant colors to the design, true to the spirit of Holi. Fold a piece of cardboard in half to make the card base. You should use a ruler to ensure the folds are straighter and sharper.

The next step is to cut each colored detail out of the page. Place the folded card base on a flat surface and use a pencil to sketch the outline of the details that pop from the coloring page onto the inside of the card. Use a craft knife to cut along the outlines you just sketched.

Apply glue to the back of the cut-out, place the colored details on the corresponding area in the card, and press down firmly to secure it.

Finally, open and close the card to make sure the details in the card pop out freely. Your Holi pop-up card is ready to gift to your friends and loved ones. When they open the card, they will be delighted with the colorful surprise that genuinely represents the joyful atmosphere of the festival.

Turn Into A Postcard

This craft idea is not too difficult to make, even for young children. You just need to choose your favorite Holi-themed images and print them on thick, high-quality paper. Before printing, adjust the postcard to the appropriate size, usually about 4 x 6 inches.

You will choose vibrant tones matching the festive spirit to color the images. If you want the postcard to stand out, you can draw a border around it and add glitter or other decorative elements.

Last but not least, write a message to the recipient on the back of the card, including the address on the right side and the postage stamp in the corner. This colorful postcard will brighten the recipient’s day and share festive cheer with them wherever they are.

Design A Gift Tag

The gift card idea has steps quite similar to making a bookmark. You will choose designs related to the Holi holiday, such as flowers, water guns, or scenes of people throwing colors at each other.

After printing on hard paper, you will color in a border around the image like our illustration below. Use the tool to make a hole at the top of the gift tag. Make sure it is large enough to thread the ribbon through. You can tie it around the gift or stick it with glue.
