Fun Kwanzaa Color Book Picture

Student Level:
preschool, kindergarten, grade 1 - grade 6

The image used in this coloring page is licensed from GraphicsFactory.com.

There are seven Kwanzaa candles - three red, a black, and three green. The black candle is a celebration of being black, of the unique and special qualities each person brings to the whole family or community. It is a candle of the present, of today. The green candles are vision candles - candles of hopes, dreams, and promises for the future. The red candles are struggle candles, past candles, candles the color of blood, candles the color of courage. All seven candles help African Americans to remember a long struggle against injustice, against unfairness, and to promise each other that they will continue to work together against injustice.

Each day, a different candle is lit:

The first symbolizes Umoja (unity).
The second is for Kujichagulia (self-determination).
The third symbolizes Ujima (collective work and responsibility).
The fourth symbolizes Ujamaa (cooperative economics).
The fifth is for Nia (purpose).
The sixth symbolizes Kuumba (creativity).
The seventh is for Imani (faith).

  • Click on one of the colors in the color palette to choose a color.
  • With your selected color, click on a part of a picture to fill it with that color.
  • You may change your colors as often as you like.
  • When you are happy with your coloring, you may print out your picture by clicking on the printer icon on the coloring page (Says "Full Page Print"). Only your artwork with sentence will print - advertisements, directions, and color palette will not print. Graphics print crisply and clearly.
