canva learning school printables tutorial

Coloring pages for kids are a great way to learn and entertain. As a designer it can be a challenge to come up with an efficient way to make these on the fly. Let me introduce to you the easy and fast way of making those school letter coloring pages in Canva.


Step 1:

The first thing I need to do was create my document. 


Step 2:

For this instance, I chose the US Letter Document. This document size will automatically format to 8.5 inches by 11 inches.

Step 3:

As you can see here, my document is ready and I am looking for Letter Frame Elements in the Elements Tab. You can find this Elements Tab in the Left Hand Side. Pro Tip: use the search bar to look for your elements.

Step 4:

You can see from the "cloud and grass scenery" in the letter on the art board I have found the Letter Frame type letters. This what I refer to as scenery letters shows you got the right set up.

Step 5:

Once I have the right Letter Frame I go to the "Upload" tab/icon in the same column and place you find the Elements tab. Previous to this tutorial, I uploaded a Mandala image I created. You can find these Mandalas Here.  I am going to drag and get ready to drop this Mandala image on to the Letter Frame.

Step 6:

Once I have the Mandala image over the Letter Frame I position it so that it is on top of the scenery area. Once positioned, you will see the Mandala image enlarge and the Letter Frame will have the glowing light blue edge. You know you're on to great things when you see this happen!


Step 7:

That's it!! You did it! You created your first School Letter Coloring Page in Canva. Now go on to create more pages using this same technique! As you can see here I went on to create the Letter "D".

Step 8:

You are on the home stretch now! Let's save this Work of Art and get it ready to Print! Go to the top right hand corner and find the drop down menu that says "Download".

Step 9:

Find the "Print PDF" and watch the magic happen! 


Save to your downloads or where you would like to find it on your computer. You are done! Congrats! 

If this is to much work for you or you want to have the pages done already. Here is these pages for Free!
