Mess Free Science – Color Me Surprised!

Mess Free Science – Color Me Surprised!

This past year has really forced us to think a bit differently about teaching and learning science. Science lessons aren’t restricted to the classroom or laboratory anymore, and they don’t have to be messy or require a lab coat and safety goggles. In fact, learning science can be fun, creative, and integrated into one of the most common childhood pastimes – coloring! 

Benefits of Coloring for Children

• Helps develop hand-eye coordination • Brings awareness to what’s around them • A prelude to handwriting skills • Develops creative thinking • Improves concentration/focus skills and endurance • Supports self-expression • Reduces stress and anxiety • Can help with relaxation and sleep

Hbar has recently created printable coloring pages designed our very own science teacher and artist, Liz Pearson. These kid-friendly drawings provide a fun, creative challenge for kids and future scientists as they color and learn about a variety of popular science topics including cell biology, earth science, human anatomy, microbiology, plant science, zoology, and more.

Single pages are available for digital download within minutes! Simply follow this link (, choose the coloring pages you’d like to purchase, complete the checkout process, and a link will be made available as well as emailed to you.

We also have a 26 page Biology ABCs Coloring Book that can be shipped directly to your home or school. This coloring book introduces 1 Biology concept for each letter of the alphabet and is perfect for scientists of any age!
