When you think of Australian animals, what are the first ones that come to mind?
For us, it’s kangaroos and koalas! While kangaroos are cool, koalas are so snugly and adorable that they barely beat out the kangaroos.
That’s exactly why we created these printable koala coloring pages for kids!
These printable coloring sheets are super simple. Just print out, give to the kids, and let their imagination take the reins!
Don’t forget to check out all of our coloring pages for kids as well.
