Starting a conversation with young children about topics that even leave us adults traumatized and bewildered is no easy task. That’s why I have put together these free Ukraine coloring pages.
These Ukraine coloring pages are a perfect way to at least educate your children about the beautiful country. These can be used for children of all ages, in fact as an adult, a lot of these words were new to me too.
For younger children, I think just learning about the country is enough, unless of course they have been exposed to it. I do recommend CNN10 for upper elementary to high school kids though, where they talk about the news in a kid-friendly manner.
Each coloring page has a new word that is associated with the Ukraine and information about it, as well a picture of it to color.
We love creating free kids coloring pages, and we either use them as a supplement for a lesson we are studying or to calm the mood! Coloring is a great way for them to refocus and relax.

How to Talk to Children About The Ukraine War?
Of course, children will have questions about the Ukraine War which we shouldn’t ignore.
The first thing I recommend would be to show them where Ukraine is in the world, and where Russia is in comparison. Also make sure the kids know that the UK, America, and nearly every country in the world are AGAINST Russia and are SUPPORTING Ukraine.
UNICEF USA has set up a donation page where you can donate to protect the children of Ukraine.
Education Week has put together some resources for teachers to help their students.
CNN10 as mentioned earlier is a great 10-minute news channel aimed at kids.
