Word’s Hidden Coloring Pages

Sunday, January 29th, 2017 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help, MS Word

There’s a neat feature in Microsoft Word that you might have missed.  Did you know you there are coloring pages and activity sets for kids?  This is a great feature if you happen to have some kids visiting or you’re looking for a new rainy day activity that doesn’t involve an electronic device.

First, open up Word and choose New to start a new document.


In the search box where it says “Search for online templates,” type in “Coloring and activity pages” and click the magnifying glass.


You’ll see “Coloring and activity pages” in the results under Category. Click on it.


You’ll see a pretty good selection of pages to scroll through.


Among the activity sheets, are several multi-page coloring books including Christmas, Halloween, and St. Patricks Day.


There are also activity sheets for things like Groundhog day and Daylight Saving Time.

Just click on the sheet to download and open. Then you can print the sheet.

You can also customize many of the sheets with the name of the child, age, dates, and other information such as the name of a class.

One of my favorites is the paper doll sets available with either a girl or a boy and several sets of clothing to color and cut out.

    Once again a WorldStart article that is missing important technical details, such as the version of MS Word that this article applies to. The search for ‘coloring and activity pages’ displays 16 pictures, rather than the drop-down category list when using Word 2007. It costs a lot to upgrade Word to obtain trivial changes in functionality. I am not sure how Microsoft made some pictures only color-able on certain versions. A more useful article would compare the functionality of the various versions on the various operating systems.

    I find it awfully nice and helpful of Cynthia to send out those excellent tips every weekday, and I am looking forward to reading and learning from them. Therefore, I believe it’s uncalled for to be so unappreciative with your comments, Mr. Bob. Thank you, Cynthia for your daily pointers! They are much appreciated by many of us out there in cyberspace!
