Printable Coloring Pages, Mushrooms and Cup Motifs

Get Creative!

Short Description:

Lots of different types of mushrooms are available these days, including many exotic varieties. Spend some time Googling the different types and talk about which ones you have tasted, which might be poisonous, etc. Get creative with color, and don’t be afraid to make your mushrooms all the colors of the rainbow!

For the cup and saucer, paint your favorite beverage, and be sure to fill in all the spaces around it to create a mosaic window effect.

Directions for Caregivers:

Make your painting session a social occasion. Add a cup of tea and chat about the different types of mushrooms and your favorite drinks as you paint.

Both of these coloring pages will look great when displayed in a group, no two will look alike. Encourage the use of many colors and mixing for added shades.

Early and mid-stage dementia

Provide the necessary supplies and offer guidance on paint usage/mixing. Be available for support if required.

If someone hesitates to participate, leaving a brush and page in front of them often leads to eventual engagement after observing others painting for a while. Watching someone else paint is an activity in itself. Maybe the person will offer opinions on which color to use and where to apply it.
