Coloring has always been a favorite way of learning in our house. I originally created these free printable animal alphabet coloring pages with fun animal facts a couple years ago for my then 4 year old. Now that my younger son is about to turn 4, I’ve revamped them a bit.
Below you’ll find two options for each letter. One is a coloring page with the name of the animal on them along with some fun facts about that animal. The other is an animal in the shape of the letter of the alphabet that the animal’s name starts with.
