Even if you’re not particularly religious or even spiritual, your kids probably know about angels. While the angels that adorn some Christmas trees or the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel may look more adult and surreal, that’s not exactly how all angels look. When you explore angel lore, you’ll find that not all angels were even necessarily good. Fans of the show Lucifer will tell you that some angels look like smoking hot British men. (Because, yes, Lucifer is/was an angel.) Of the more familiar look angel-types we see, though, are those cute, chubby-cheeked baby cherubs. Angels are often portrayed as children — or at least younger beings with youthful faces. That particular portrayal of angels also makes for adorable angel coloring pages, which we discovered in creating this ethereal collection of free printables.
However, the general population will define an angel as a guardian spirit or just a good, innocent person. In fact, we’ve included along with this collection various angel quotes — one of which has nothing to do with an actual celestial being but, instead, is geared toward someone’s perception of themselves. All of these angels, though, are super lovely… and probably pretty innocent.
After the last few tumultuous years, we can probably all agree that we can use more of anything that makes us feel a bit lighter and more hopeful. And is there anything more therapeutic, more cathartic than sitting down to a crisp white piece of paper and a cupful of your favorite crayons, markers, or colored pencils? It can really get you out of a slump. From the angels below to royally cute princess coloring pages and rad rocket coloring pages, we have free printables for pretty much any interest. But these angel coloring pages might just be our favorites.

Angel Page No. 7
Did you know there are different kinds of angels like seraphims and cherubims? There are also archangels and fallen angels. An archangel is the highest rank of angels, and fallen angels are banned from heaven. We wonder what type of celestial being this cutie in the image above is. Then, of course, there’s another type of angel: the angels of good nature, as Abraham Lincoln so eloquently described. He said, “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”
