Colouring in Pictures

Below are some colouring in pictures for younger readers...and not so young readers.

Why not colour in our research ship, the MRV Scotia? Or meet our cheeky characters Bosun Chaeto, Captain Copepod and Pirate Squid? Or impress your friends with a fish hat?

And for artists who want a bit more of a challenge, how about our crazy fishy patterned sheets? Just click on each image to get a full-sized colouring in sheet. 

In addition there are lots and lots of other free, downloadable images available online, plus a fun activity sheet.
