If you have a Netflix account, there’s a good chance that you’ve watched Tiger King. And, let’s just say that it’s much different from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, which you’ve likely caught a few times if you have kids at home. Tigers can be portrayed as either friendly or ferocious, and that’s one of the many reasons artists love to draw and paint them. With tigers, there are a lot of options. One of those? Tiger coloring pages! Are you a fan of these beautiful big cats but not the best at drawing? No problem. As long as you love to color, these free coloring pages will be your jam.
Tiger coloring pages are also great if you want to improve your shading skills. Since tigers often come in a few different colors, you can also add a bit of variety if you decide to print them all out at once.
Here are a few fierce tiger coloring pages, in case you’re looking for a fun DIY distraction for your kiddos.
Free Tiger Coloring Pages
1. Ferocious Tiger
Let’s start with a scary version. Sure, this guy may be baring his teeth and giving a look of displeasure, but that just makes him more dynamic to color. If your school mascot happened to be a tiger, this looks as if it’d fit flawlessly on university merch. Don’t be afraid to try out neon orange for this guy or another color that turns this page into a bold piece of art.
2. Patterned Tiger
This tiger would look magnificent with mint green and light yellow detailing. This is a coloring page that you should feel free to get a little wild with. It’s great for experienced artists to color and an excellent assignment for a middle schooler looking to break out the colored pencils.
3. Cartoon Tiger
Now, this is a tiger you’d expect to see on a kids’ show. Friendly and happy, he was drawn to be more of a pal than a threat. We’d say this is suitable for children (and adults) of all ages.
4. Roaring Tiger
This one looks more like a drawing you’d find in a science textbook. Realistic and a bit intimidating, the tiger pictured here is a good reminder that it’s best to keep a safe distance from these big cats when possible. But if you’re looking for a realistic tiger page to color in and personalize, look no further.
5. Cartoon Tiger (With Stripe)
This is another adorable, family-friendly tiger — and really, can you ever have too many of those? (Nope!) In fact, with its three stripes on top, it almost resembles Daniel Tiger’s stuffed plush Tigey. Feel free to color him in a similar shade of blue if the mood strikes.
6. Tiger Cub
Aww! This little guy looks like something you’d want to bring home as a pet. But, trust, it’s much safer to leave him on the coloring page where he belongs. This is a realistic portrayal, but colors can go either way. You can color him in with yellows and oranges, or maybe use a soft gold to bring him to life.
7. Tiger Icon
Need a starter drawing for toddlers? Here you go. This page also works for adults who prefer coloring pages that have thick lines and boundaries. This is yet another tiger coloring page that can be experimented with. Perhaps this tiger is silver! Or you could be a minimalist and just color in the nose, making it a white tiger.
8. Friendly Tiger
This sweet tiger also looks like it could star in a PBS series. If you make sure to give him some color duration throughout his face, he’ll appear a little more realistic. It’d be great to also include some grass or create a background to make his story even better.
9. Cute Tiger
Could this little tiger baby be any cuter? (Said in our best Chandler Bing voice, naturally.) It looks a lot like a housecat, right? For that reason, this tiger creates the perfect opportunity to talk to your kiddo about the difference between domestic and wild cats.
10. Regal Tiger
Finally, this coloring page ends on a more realistic note. This tiger looks especially proud, doesn’t he? You can go a lot of ways with this coloring page — just make sure to be creative with it and let your imagination run wild.
