You-Print Halloween Coloring Pages

Yay! Buz Carter sent along these Halloween coloring pages to share.

Four coloring pages depicting a pumpkin, a mad scientist, a child dressed as a with and a scarecrow jack-o-lantern. Creative Commons attribution non-commercial share-alike license.

Buz who? You know, Buz the artist who is wasting his life earning a living posing as a programmer instead of following his passion for drawing. You see his handiwork every time you visit here. He illustrated and coded Thingamababy’s visual appearance.

And by “sent along these coloring pages” I mean he dropped them in my lap like he was unloading chocolate bars at an orphanage. A few he originally drew for his favorite local coffee shop, but the mad scientist is all ours, baby! Well, “all ours” insofar as its Creative Commons non-commercial share-alike with attribution license lets you copy and create derivative works. Oh, but I digress.

I like the pumpkin image the best because your child draws the jack-o-lantern face himself. Although, the scientist is nice too because he’s so spooky that whatever your color-challenged toddler does will look good.

Sure, we’re a few weeks away from Halloween, so print and stow the sheets or bookmark ‘em… unless you’re hardcore. I know two families who have already obtained their Halloween costumes.

Buz would laugh at the notion, but in an alternate universe he is a father or a teacher and his spare time hobby is illustrating children’s books. (He experimented with a number of drawings for Thingamababy’s title graphic; he has quite a style range.)

Thanks Buz.

    Thanks! My little one will like these, I’m sure!

    We already bought her Halloween costume, mainly because we had problems last year. She was scared of her costume last year (She wasn’t quite 2 yet), so we wanted to start early. So far, it’s worked.

    these are great! wealready have our costumes for both girls. (they’re going to be giant fuzzy chickens). We got them last year post Halloween at a deep discount.

    hack idea = after halloween this year, Old Navy and Children’s Place put their costumes (generally high quality fabric costumes) on DEEP discount. you can get a ton of fun outfits for your kids’ dressup box for as little as a buck or two apiece.

    These are great! I’m going to print them out for LO to color and give them as Halloween presents to the grandparents and great-grandparents.

    We have our Halloween costume already too – it’s the same one as last year. Last year he hated the costume (13 months old). We tried it on 2 weeks ago (need to let down the arm sleeves and legs, but otherwise it still fits) and he LOVES it. He comes home from school and wears the monkey costume all evening. So cute!
