Introducing: Printable 'But Why' Coloring Pages!

May 1, 2020

Listening to But Why: A Podcast For Curious Kids is now even more fun! We asked Vermont artists to illustrate some of their favorite episodes to create coloring pages that you can download and print for your little (and not so little) But Why fans to color while listening to our show. 

Below you’ll find a list of episodes that have new coloring pages that you can print out on a standard 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper and a link to listen to that show. Dig out your crayons, coloring pencils, pastels or whatever you like to use and bring these pictures to full life with the colors you love! More illustrations will be coming so check back often!

We'd love to see your artwork! Send photos to or share them with us on Facebook! Have fun!
