Are you looking for some summer vacation activities for our child? Are you thinking of introducing him to summer fruits and vegetables through coloring pages? If you said yes, then our cucumber coloring pages will surely help you.
There are just a few foods as cool as a cucumber. While most of the people think cucumber is a vegetable, but it is a fruit. Cucumber belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family, which also includes melons and squashes.
Cucumber was once accessible only to the best-stocked farmers. Now different types of cucumbers are showing at the grocery stores and of course, the garden patches. Through our coloring pages, we will teach your child about the different varieties of cucumber available in the market.
10 Best Cucumber Coloring Pages Your Little One Will Love:
Here’s a coloring page of a freshly harvested cucumber. The creeping vine of cucumber bears cylindrical fruits that are more common as a veggie. There are three main varieties of cucumber- pickling, slicing and burp-less. Within these three varieties, there are plenty of cultivars.
2. Garden Cucumber:
Here is a Garden Cucumber coloring sheet. This type of cucumber has a smooth, dark green skin. The skin is thick and quite bitter, so you may need to peel them. The garden cucumbers also have big seeds, so you may need to deseed them before using.
3. Armenian Cucumber:
Armenian cucumbers are thin, long and have various colors. They may come in shades of light and dark green or a yellowish green. Armenian cucumbers are delightfully crunchy and taste best when eaten raw. They have a fragile skin and soft seeds and do not require any seeding or peeling.
4. Kirby Cucumber:
The Kirby cucumber is a short and bumpy type of cucumber. It has a broad range of skin colors like yellow, light green and dark green. You can eat Kirby cucumbers raw as well, but they are flavorful enough for pickling. Kirby cucumbers are also known as ‘pickling cucumbers’.
5. Sea Cucumber:
No, this is not any regular cucumber grown on a farm. It’s a sea cucumber, an echinoderm, just like sea urchins and starfish. Sea cucumbers look just like soft-bodied cucumbers, hence the name. Sea cucumbers dwell near the ocean floor and feed on algae and minute aquatic animals. Remember, you cannot eat the cucumber raw.
6. Cool Cucumber:
“Cool as cucumber”- the phrase totally befits the smart lad here. The cucumber looks dapper in his sneakers. The color sheet will also reinforce handwriting skills in your child. Green, yellow or purple, which color do you think will look best on this cucumber? We think purple! And your child can use different colors for the word cucumber.
7. Persian Cucumber:
Persian cucumbers are similar in English cucumbers in terms of appearance. In fact, they are visually indistinguishable from the English cucumbers, except that they come in a range of lengths. Some Persian cucumbers are shorter while some are longer. Some even have bumpy skin like Kirby cucumbers. The mild taste of Persian cucumber makes it perfect for salads.
8. Larry The Cucumber:
As the name implies, Larry is a cucumber. He is one of the main protagonists from the series “Jonah, A Veggie Tales Movie”. He hosts the show along with Bob, but later Junior Asparagus replaced him. Larry was supposed to be a chocolate bar, but his parents did not allow him to fall in love with candy. So he had to become a cucumber.
9. English Cucumber:
Here is a coloring sheet of a half sliced English cucumber. English cucumbers, or hothouse cucumbers, are thin, long and have a dark green skin. English cucumbers are prized or their minimal seeds and thin skin. They have a very mild flavor, a flavor that is almost non-existent.
10. Smiling Cucumber:
Where is this cucumber going? We think it is going for a picnic. And we totally love how he poses. You can also tell your child to make a few birds, the mighty sun or a few trees in the background. And give him the liberty to use any color he likes.
