Blank Faces Coloring Page 2.0 – Thanks to all the incredible comments and feedback I’ve received from my original “Blank Faces” post, I’ve decided to do a follow-up post.  When I originally created this page it was just a cute colouring page I threw together to entertain my daughter.  Never is my wildest dreams did I expect the mass interest in something that seemed so simple and unassuming.

Since releasing the original post, I’ve been contacted by hospital staff, researchers, teachers and therapists.  It’s currently being used in emergency rooms, pediatric cancer wards, special education services, Autism research groups and psychologist’s offices.  I would be remiss if I didn’t mention all the parents and grandparents who have thanked me for helping to keep their little ones entertained too. I have been overwhelmed with thanks and this simple and innocuous coloring page has opened my eyes to the world of need out there. With that being said, this coming week I have an appointment to visit  my local hospital to donate a large package of  “Blank Faces” coloring pages to our local pediatric ward  (as well as the Robots page, I-Spy, and Jellyfish bracelet templates).

One bit of feedback that I received from my original design is that people wanted to see more ethnically diverse faces so that a variety of children can relate better to the images.  So with that in mind, I have created the next in the series of faces that I hope will accomplish that task.  I want to say in advance that obviously these images are huge generalizations and I am wary of doing anything that may offend or neglect certain individuals or groups.  So please keep in mind that this was only created with the best and noblest of intentions.

Please continue to comment on what or who you printed these pages for.  I love hearing from you.

    I wanted to thank you for BOTH of the coloring pages and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. Our two granddaughters will be here at the week’s end! I’ve been cooking up some fun surprises for them and these coloring sheets are going to be part of that! Thank you SO much!

    Do you think it was appropriate to draw the clearly african american figure with a large nose and lips?? I have an african american god son and I am very offended by your interpretation.

      Thanks for your comment. I want to explain that it was my daughter who drew these faces and she just turned 7 years old. I know she’s not the most gifted artist yet but her drawing is of a man with a mustache and a goatee – that’s just how she draws. If you look at the figure at the start of the same row you’ll see that she drew the nose the same way on the other girl with her hair in a bun. We live in a very caucasian and asian area and she watches very little TV so to be honest she wouldn’t even pick up on the fact that it was supposed to be an African American. Frankly, it never occurred to me at all that her drawing would be perceived that way (I certainly didn’t for a moment think it looked like you described) and it actually makes me feel quite sad that we’ve been socialized to think the worst. I hope all who look at her very innocent drawing can take it for what it’s worth – just a little kid trying to have fun drawing a mustache and a goatee.

      Thanks again for your comment.

        pathetic that you are even saying that you are offended! don’t subscribe to the page then. It’s people like you that make this world a difficult place when you always look for the negative in everything.
        i did not even think a thing of any of the faces drawn.
        so sad.

        wow, i’m sorry you had to reply to such a comment… why do some people have to think the worse of others, and become so easily offended…

      That’s a mustache, not a nose! The nose is above (tiny)

      Wow!!!Please get a grip!! There’s so many things wrong with your response but I won’t totally go there… Anyway, a distinguishing characteristic of black faces are fuller lips and wider noses…that’s just reality and nothing to be offended or ashamed of so your response doesn’t really make sense.
      On that note I wonder what your black friend would think of your response? I’m black and I find your comment to Jamey offensive.
      Jamey, your blog is wonderful and thanks for sharing the things you do!

    I love both your face sheets, and so do my girls! We would also love it if you made a monster face sheet for Halloween 🙂

      Thanks and I have to tell you we must be on the same wave length because I actually wrote in my “to do” journal to design a monster face sheet just this morning… pretty weird. Thanks for your comments and stay tuned for the monster page.

    I’m a flight attendant and I printed several sheets of each of your blank faces/monster sheets out to give to kids who may be bored on flights (they have 36 channels of free DirecTV at their seat, but sometimes that’s just not involved enough). My co-workers also enjoyed drawing on them. We’re all just big kids, afterall 😉

    I can’t wait to use this one. I recently cut out the first set and laminated them and then taped them to popsicle sticks. I used them for a check in group (I am a therapist) and the kids could use a whiteboard marker to draw how they were feeling at the beginning of group. I am excited to see the diversity of this set because one girl did not feel that any of the hair represented her. I can’t wait to show her this week the additions. I also plan on using them as puppets for shows. Thanks so much for sharing.

      Fantastic idea Jessica. I’m so glad to hear these faces are being used in this way and that now all the kids are feeling represented. Thanks for your comment.

      I love the idea of laminating them for reuse, Jessica! I was planning to use them with my ELL classes. I love both versions, Jamey. I was thrilled about the diversity of options.

    Thanks so much for sharing this!

    I’m using it today in a class at Church with my 4 year olds. The lesson is about being a peace-maker, and I’ve added text along the bottom of your wonderful coloring page that says “I can help to put a smile on people’s faces”.

    We’ll bring out the crayons and do just that! Thanks again for the amazing artwork!

    thanks for these.. I could see my son enjoying these.. I imagine he will also want to draw bodies onto the faces, so maybe i’ll cut them out & paste to paper for him.

    I found your page on Pinterest when I was looking for doodling ideas. Free motion quilting has led me to zentangles & doodling. I can’t stop looking at your blog. It’s wonderful!
    Looking at the different eyes you’ve drawn on the blank faces, I have a suggestion for another sheet. What about different eyes, noses, mouths?

    Thank you so much for these face pages! I work for a small business that work with kids on the spectrum & these are so handy & great for the kids to fill in their faces.

    Thank you soooooo much!!!

    Hi, I teach Abuse Prevention in Pre schools and Primary schools in South Africa. Would you mind if we use your template when we teach about feelings? I love the idea of the reusable laminated faces that children can draw on. I love the variety of children that they can select what best represents them
