Cartoon Moon Coloring Sheet

The moon reflects light from the sun, so it can take on many different colors. White, gray, and yellow are common.

Crescent Moon for Kids and Beginners Coloring Sheet

The rest of the moon isn't gone - you just can't see it because the light isn't reflecting off it. Color this sliver of the moon - silver, gray, or yellow, the choice is yours.

Asteroid Coloring Sheet

Rocky asteroids are usually brown or gray, just like rocks here on Earth. If they're icy, they can appear white. If they have a lot of iron in them, they become rusty red.

Easy Globe Coloring Sheet

Most globes use blue for the Earth's oceans and green and brown for the land - except for Antarctica, which is white. Some use unnatural colors to demarcate all the countries.

The lightbulb means it's a good idea. Color the blue and green planet. What about the light bulb? Will you make it yellow and shining, or dark for Earth Hour?

Venus Coloring Sheet

Venus's surface is made of gray rock, but it looks orange. Why? Its atmosphere has a lot of sulfur, which reflects yellow and orange light.

Mars Coloring Sheet

Mars is called the Red Planet because its surface is a rusty red. It really is rusty - its soil contains a lot of iron, which rusts over time.

Yellow and white, orange and yellow, yellow and light blue - you can choose the right combination of colors for this pair of celestial bodies that dominate the day and night.
