How to keep the kids connected to nature while staying indoors: wildlife colouring-in

Looking for indoor activities with a nature angle? We’ve got you covered with these wildlife colouring activities.

Being stuck indoors doesn’t mean you have to disconnect from nature.

Let us remind you of our beautiful South Australian wildlife with this series of 31 native animal colouring-in sheets.

From bearded dragons and echidnas to heath goannas and fairy wrens, there’s plenty of South Australian native animals looking for little artists to give them some special colour.

Will it be a never-before-seen purple and orange echidna? Or a blue polka dot wombat?

Get the pencils out and have a bit of fun, and even go Picasso style.

Thanks to our friends at Natural Resources SA Murray-Darling Basin, there’s 31 colouring-in sheets are downloadable and ready for you to print and colour. Here are five of our favourites:
