Easter Coloring Pages from 1930s Newspapers

Lots of newspapers from the 1920s-1930s included activities for children: stories, coloring pages, paper dolls, how-tos, puzzles and games. Many papers devoted a page every week, and some even had whole sections specifically for children. I loved this kind of stuff when I was a kid in the 1950s, but my mother either purchased coloring/activity books, or my sisters and I created them for ourselves. I don’t remember our paper publishing activities for kids.

I re-sized these cute Easter images to print on letter-sized paper. Click to enlarge.
