Chile’s independence celebrations, called las fiestas patrias, arrive the week of September 18th.
Every year I hear from parents and teachers that want to teach their kids more about Chilean culture.
You can help your kids get in the spirit of celebrating Chile with these coloring pages that represent Chile’s national symbols and people. You can print out the coloring pages and then have your kids color or paint them:
The Chilean National Seal includes a shield bordered by the native Huemul and Condor.
The Chilean flag is a simple design which makes coloring it pretty easy for kids of all ages.
The beautiful Copihue is Chile’s national flower.
Chile’s national anthem is an engaging hymn that offers visuals of this diverse country.

This collage represents Chileans from all corners of the country, including Easter island:
The Carabineros are Chile’s national police force.
