There’s something about mermaids that children find so enchanting that they never seem to go out of style. Whenever we encourage our visitors to give us ideas for new content, we get requests for more mermaid coloring pages for kids. So, while we keep adding new mermaid coloring sheets for your little ones, let us help you navigate through our current printable library.
ARE MERMAIDS REAL?
Children are usually most familiar with “The Little Mermaid”, the Disney version of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, published in 1837. However, the stories about mermaids were inspired by creatures from folktales from around the world and have been circulating for many centuries in different cultures.
In the past, the tales of mermaids were not only told as entertaining fictional accounts. In certain historical periods, many sailors and residents of coastal areas reported mermaid sightings and their contemporaries often accepted their testimonies as truthful.
If your kid ever wondered if mermaids are real, here’s a fun child-friendly video you can watch together:
