These free printable Greek Gods and Goddesses Colouring Pages for children are perfect for school history lessons or for kids that have a fascination with Greek Mythology. Pictures of Greek Gods are great for learning about ancient Greece and their myths; from Zeus (King of the Gods) to the much feared Hades (Ruler of the Underworld) these printable pictures make great history handouts. If you need websites about Greek Gods and Goddesses for kids then we can help you teach them about mythical characters, beasts and heroes like Goliath, Theseus (who killed the Minotaur) and the brave Perseus.
There are many tragedies and tales of woe too of course. The punishment of the mighty Atlas for example who was condemned to hold Uranus on his shoulders ….. or how about the legendary Achilles whose mother (Thetis) dipped him into the River Styx when he was just a baby making him completely invulnerable except for his heel where she was holding him at the time.
Looks like the time has finally come for us to be a bit more grown up! For the first 10 years of www.free-for-kids.com we were solely focussed on producing content for kids and teenagers but we think we’ve been ‘missing a trick’ by not extending our subject matter into the curious world of adults and parents. As always we have a lot to say about – well – everything really and this new avenue will let us explore products, knowledge, experiences and services that we think will bring many benefits to our older visitors.
