Many of us love the Madagascar movies. With the recent release of "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted," it's time to think coloring pages. I created this list of coloring pages for "Madagascar 2 Escape 2 Africa," which has many of the same friends as the new film--Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe, Gloria the hippo, the lemurs Mort, Maurice, Julien, Moto-moto and Makunga. Don't forget the penguins Skipper and Kowalski. We enjoy the voice talents of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sacha Baren Cohen, David Schwimmer, the late Bernie Mac, Will I. Am, Cedric the Entertainer, Alec Baldwin and others. Here are coloring pages to enjoy-- Free Printable Madagascar 2 Escape 2 Africa Coloring Pages. The link will take you to Kung Fu Panda coloring pages, but you can find Madagascar coloring pages on the same site.

Looking for a new Disney princess that's not quite as sugar-coated as the standard fare? Why not check out Merida from Disney's newest Pixar release "Brave?" Merida is definitely no Cinderella. She's more akin to Lady Macbeth (minus that nasty business of murder) than Sleeping Beauty. If you liked the movie "Brave," which premiered on June 10, 2012, you'll want these free printable coloring pages and activities from the film. Print coloring pages (found on this blog ) from Brave, How to Train Your Dragon, Dragon Tales, Chinese New Year and Jane and the Dragon for a Dragon themed party!
