Mermaid aren’t just for girls, but for some reason it’s nearly impossible to find mermaid crafts and activities geared towards boys.
We’re working to change that with these free printable boy mermaid coloring pages!
In reality “mermaid” refers to girls, so these are really more “merboys” but we don’t even know if that’s a real term.
Either way, these coloring pages are fun for kids to use for ocean themed units or for summertime!
They’re perfect to use with toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarten aged children.
Also be sure to check out all of our mermaid activities for kids.
