There are a lot of ways to use the sleepy sloth coloring page but here are some of our favorites:
- Use the sleepy sloth coloring sheet when studying animals that live in the rainforest.
- Use the sloth coloring page as part of your alphabet study. It’s perfect for the letter s – especially if you’re doing the alphabet in animals.

What to Use with This Coloring Page
As we mentioned, sloths live in the rainforest. They are great at moving slowly and camouflaging themselves within the trees and foliage. So, while greens and browns and beiges are typically their color of choice, you can color your sloth any way that you want. After all, this sleepy sloth is all yours!
While we encourage you to use the coloring tools that you like best, here are some of our favorites and the ones that we used to color in our own sleepy sloth coloring page.
