Coloring Pages for Kids with Glasses

The Great Glasses Play Day -   Print out  Coloring Pages for a fun Glasses Themed Playdate!

COLORING Pages for Kids with Glasses and/or eye patches!

I found the most perfect coloring page today that is a picture of a little girl with pigtails wearing glasses and was drawn with very thick outlines. Belle loves to color (scribble) and isn't anyplace close to sticking within the lines but I wonder how much of that is developmental and how much is because of her ambylopia - I'm sure it is both. I can't wait to share this coloring page with her of this adorable and happy little girl wearing glasses.  Find the coloring page here.

I've heard that coloring is a super activity for her to do while patching and we'll get started with Amomofelly's adorable page.  From Amomofelly of
The lines are thicker than traditional coloring pages, especially to help those kids who are patching and are still struggling to see through their weaker eye.  More coloring pages from the LFE site here:

While I was at it I found a few more coloring pages that are appropriate from that are pages from the book All Children Have Different Eyes: Learn to Play and Make Friends....Starring Tommy with Nystagmus (wobbly eyes) and Wendy with Strabismus (crossed eyes)

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. My daughter was patched at 3 years old (the pediatrician found it early) and only for 6 months. She wore glasses until very recently. She'll never see out of her right eye but at least it's not wandering. Hopefully patching will work for your daughter. Good Luck!
