Mother’s Day Coloring Pages That You Won’t Find Anywhere Else


My daughter and I are getting ready for the upcoming mothers day festivities this weekend. We had gone shopping to get a little something for the wife and my daughter picked out some interesting “gifts” for mommy - Lego Blocks, a Power Ranger, a Doll bed...
Basically a bunch of toys that she wanted.

Anyhow, I won’t mention what we got her just yet, but I thought since my daughter loves to color I should make some coloring pages to go along with it.
She, like other 2-year olds her age, wanted to color pictures of Elmo, Butterflies, Unicorns, etc. But I wanted to be a little more unique, so I came up with these:

Lionel Richie: "You’re Once, Twice, Three Times a Lady – Happy Mother’s Day!"

Sophia and Dorothy: "Happy Mother’s Day, Ma!"

Elmo's Mother's Day Unicorn and Butterfly Birthday Party Fantasy

(Feel free to use for Mother’s Day. Click to download)

Can you guess which my daughter chose to give mommy?

One day way back when, Julia was sick and she and Dave spent the afternoon colouring while I was out somewhere. I came home and found a picture of BA Baracus taped to the fridge, coloured up all pretty by father and daughter. Dave had gone online and downloaded some colouring pages, and couldn't pass up the one with Mr. T pointing, giving his cold, hardass stare. Across the top of the page he'd written, in red crayon, I PITY THE FOOL!

I like the Lionel Richie one best.

Awesome Mom said...

Awesome coloring pages!

Sarah O. said...

I've just downloaded the Lionel coloring page. I'm going to color it myself and proudly display it on the fridge - just as a subtle reminder.

And because it's hilarious.

# 3 i guess

Brian said...

The Lionel Richie one made me cry. Actually cry.

Beck said...

My husband is printing those out AS WE SPEAK. Or type.

Jenster said...

Um, don't tell me. Lionel Richie!! No. No. Let me try again. Uh. Dorothy and Sophia!! Wait. No. Um. Elmo???

lotus07 said...

I just pray it wasn't the Lionel Richie one. She would be a Nicole Richie in training if that were the case.

creative-type dad said...

lotus07 -- definitely the Elmo one...

Unicorns, butterflies, Elmo - Lionel's mustache doesn't stand a chance!

Brian -- You must be listening to "Ballerina Girl" while reading, right?

mamatulip -- That's awesome! I actually considered doing a "T" one that said "Mr. T says: Today, no drama for mama!"

Mrs. Chicken said...

These? Are awesome.

Vampdaddy said...

The Golden Girls card is PRICELESS. I may use it for every holiday of the year!

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

Ack, I needed this laugh, thanks!

imaginary binky said...

That Lionel Ritchie coloring page looks like like that creepy sculpture of him in the "Hello" video. That man has a giant head if I ever saw one.

pixie said...

Man, I can't decide. The Lionel Richie one made me dance on the ceiling, but the Golden Girls one made me want to eat ice cream and cheesecake and talk about the good ol' days back in St. Olaf. What's a girl to do?

Good thing I have TWO kids. I'll print them both out and get them to work. Thanks, CTD!

Steph in AK said...

Lionel Richie, no doubt!

But, dude? No MD wishes from Colonel Sanders?

Laura said...

Is it just me, or wouldn't it be creepy to have Lionel Richie staring at my backside from the fridge as I wash dishes? I'll opt for the rainbows and Elmo, thanks very much.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Lionel Richie just made me snort coffee! Awesome coloring pages, hon! :-)

kittenpie said...

Your colouring pages are the most awesome. I love them! And Pumkinpie would totally love the rainbow unicorn butterfly one.

creative-type dad said...

Coal Miner's Granddaughter -- I hope you didn't get any on his mustache!

That would be a tragedy.

Steph in AK -- Yes! I know. I had a great idea for one, but this is for the wife. If I mention KFC to her one more time, she might shoot me (again)

pixie - I think you meant to say -- hear Sophia's stories about Sicily. Now if Rose had been present...

imaginary binky -- YES!!! It is! I think you deserve a prize.

nonlineargirl said...

Wow, so great! I am printing the Ritchie one right now for my favorite mom friend!

Sue said...

LMFAO! Lionel is once, twice, three times The Shiz.

Adding this blog immediately.

Roth Family Adventures said...

The Lionel page is awesome. I'm going to have my son color one up for mom.

andi said...

I will tell the 3-year-old immediately that I will only accept Creative Type Dad approved coloring pages for Mother's Day. Classic.

Steve said...

The Lionel Richie one is brilliant. Hallmark should be calling you soon.

Godless Sunday said...

Okay, THAT was funny.
Question, how bummed are you that LR's hair is already colored in for you?

Kristen said...

Oh, I hope my kids color an "Ab Fab" one for me! But I already asked them to let me sleep all day, so I'm really hoping to get that instead.

Tismee2 said...

Are we brits allowed to join in and pretend it's Mother's Day again? We already had ours.

One year I had two official ones as we were on vacation in the US for yours - so of course I had to have a special day there too!

Whit said...

Not to beat a dead horse, but if it ain't Richie, it ain't right.

h&b said...

Hmm - I too wanted an A-Team selection .. but from reading the comments, I see i'm not alone.

How come no-one ever wants a "Moonlighting" Mother's Day Card ?

Is it because Cybill in soft-focus is too grainy to colour ?

creative-type dad said...

godless Sunday -- Yes, I know. And I just realized between his hair and mustache, people will probably need to refill their ink.

h&b -- Not sure how many moms are into Cybill, or were into her. I think a BA Baracus one is much more fitting.

painted maypole said...

my daughter is begging me to print out the unicorn picture right now. "hurry up" she is saying..

Amrita said...

Hi Tony, you have the heart of a Dad and mom . I want to wish you a Happy Mother 's Day. And i will wait a few weeks till Father 's day to give you an award.

I wish there were more Dad 's like you.

Ron said...

Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for stopping by my blog earlier.

Hey...if your daughter doesn't want to color the Golden Girls...can I have it?

It's one of my favorite shows and I LOVE to color!

Great post!

carrie said...

Noe THOSE are come coloring pages that I think I would actually enjoy! Especially the Golden Girls one - hmmm, I wonder if they have any featuring Blanche? She was my fav, the saucy old broad!

Hope you spoiled your wife today! ;)

Beverly said...

I don't know about my kids, but I chose the Lionel Ritchie one for myself to color.

radioactive girl said...

How awesome is this?!? I love it!

Did your wife love it?

creative-type dad said...

radioactive girl -- Absolutely!

She's a HUGE Lionel Richie fan. So much in fact that I might have to grow a mustache and buy a piano and ascot.

Ron -- Sure, I'm sure Dorothy wouldn't mind.

carrie -- Yes, she was spoiled. Breakfast at IHOP, a trip to the beach, and shopping for 3 hours.
My feet are killing me...

Ben & Bennie said...

What???!!! No KFC Mother's Day wishes?

Haley-O said...

I LOVE the colouring pages! Lionel Richie, The Golden Girls, Elmo? You are AWESOME.

I bet she picked either Lionel or the Golden Girls.... ;)

interstellaradventure said...

Those are awesome coloring pages. My fave is the Lionel Ritchie page. RAWK ON!

creative-type dad said...

Ben & Bennie -- I know, I know. The colonel has appeared in many dreams to scold me of my error in judgment.

So there will be an assortment for 4th of July.
