Greek Mythology Coloring Pages
I struggled a bit making these pages... I wanted to balance how the Ancient Greeks portrayed the gods and goddesses in their artwork with modern considerations (like making sure everyone had their clothes on) to come up with pages children would enjoy coloring.
Considerations when using these pages:
- In some cases, the Roman and Greek names for the gods/goddesses get mixed up in modern story telling. For example, Hercules is the Roman name for the half mortal/half god hero. Heracles or Herakles is the Greek name.
- In some cases there are different (often conflicting) versions of stories about the gods and goddesses. For example, regarding the birth of Aphrodite, one story indicates she was born from the sea foam (on the shell of a scallop). Another says she was the daughter of Zeus and Dione. The first makes for a more interesting/fun coloring page, so I used it. I also made sure everything was G rated when choosing which stories to portray.
