Free Disney Descendants Coloring Pages

Printable Descendants Coloring Pages

There is certainly no shortage of Disney Descendants printables. Several can be found on my blog: Descendants featuring printable bookmarks, invitations, recipes and more. But I found there to be a large shortage of coloring pages. I mean the logos alone are extremely cool. Mal has two dragons, Carlos has two bones, Jay has an awesome snake and Evie has a crown. Not to mention the most awesome image of, Long Live Evil. They totally need to be a coloring page. Which is where I come in.



Armed with a computer and the need for awesome Disney Descendants coloring pages, I set forth creating 3 coloring pages.
The first coloring page features the Descendants Logo along with the logo from all four Descendants and a little flame
The second coloring page features the apple, vine and the Big D, which I thinks stands for both Disney and Descendants. Kinda of a cool marketing tool when you think about it.
The third coloring page features Long Live Evil. It is my favorite image from Disney Descendants, featuring the silhouette of Maleficent herself.

Each of these coloring pages I created are free to download. Simply click on the image and save the PDF. Then all you have to do is print and color. It is as easy as that and so much fun. All the Descendants fans in the house will love these, kids and adults.

Miles From Tomorrowland: Let’s Rocket on DVD


“Miles From Tomorrowland: Let’s Rocket” flew to DVD August 11th with 10 blastastic episodes featuring Merc, Miles and his family. This DVD shares the stories of flying through space with family and friends in some pretty gnarly adventures from surfing quantum waves to collecting space junk. His two cool parents and awesome geeky sister makes this family fun to watch and great to learn from.



I am going to be completely honest with everyone, Miles From Tomorrowland: Let’s Rocket Rocks! No I mean it! Like many children TV shows, we have the moral teachings of family, friends, and life. Such as: If you fall get back up and try again, practice makes us better, and honesty is the best policy even if it stops you from doing what you want. Not to mention what it means to be brave, work with others and being kind to your siblings. These messages are beautifully written into a great adventure series that doesn’t feel forced but flows naturally as the story unfolds.

Miles from Tomorrowland Blodger

Messages can be difficult to place in a story without the story sounding ridged or square. However, Miles from Tomorrowland makes it feel natural and interesting. For example, in Explorer Exchange, we see Miles trying to find something both he and Blodger (an alien blob) like to do. At first it is difficult. Blob can’t speed around or race and Miles can’t do anything Blob likes to do. They almost seem too different until Blodger sees Miles space jink collection. It turns out they both collect junk and love to go out finding it. Along with Miles, we learn that no matter how different we are, we can all get along and find something in common. This brilliant message is weaved into the story so that kids and adults can easily learn it’s importance.

Miles from Tomorrowland exoflex

I have to admit, I love the way these stories are written and that the story lines absolutely keep the attention of all the little viewers, but I also love the little nod to adult viewers as well. Parents will enjoy the little geek nods to other pop-culture films Like Star Wars and Doctor Who. If you watch and listen carefully you may just catch each of them. For example, in Rock n Roll, Miles brings out a rather large machine called the Exo-Flex from a very tiny shuttle. I may be stretching it a bit but while I was watching the scene, I couldn’t help but think, “It must be bigger on the inside.” Sometimes the geek just flows out of me. A little hint: when you watch “Hiccup in a Plan” keep an ear out for a famous Star Wars quote.

Miles from Tomorrowland Star Wars quote

It has been a long time since I have been completely entertained by a Disney Junior TV series. It is refreshing to see some new stories and adventures as Miles travels through space with his family and friends. Not to mention a few geeky pop-culture nods for the adults. This collection is a astrolutly great testament to the TV series and it is a must watch for ever young galactic space traveler. Grab your copy today at and begin the adventure! The DVD also comes with a great Blast Board light that is bright and works beautifully. It was going to sit on my key chain but another member of my family beat me to it. Apparently I am, “Too slow.”

    Free Princess Palace Pets Coloring Page of Brie

    Brie Princess Palace Pet Coloring Page SKGaleana image1

    Brie is definitely a one-of-a-kind mouse: Not only is she a loyal friend, but she also knows everything about horses. Cinderella first met her in the Royal Stables, playing with her big friends. Brie has always lived there, and she loves taking care of the horses and keeping them company. The Princess thinks Brie is just amazing and is the reason the horses are so well and happy.

    Looks: Caring
    Loves: Horses, the royal stables and being helpful

    How Cinderella found Brie:
    It was a cold night, the stableman had just gone home, and Cinderella was worried about her horses, so she rushed to the Royal Stables to see if they were warm enough. When she reached them, she had a big surprise: A very tiny and gentle-looking mouse was already taking care of the horses!

    The mouse had offered them some carrots and was adjusting their blankets like a perfect horsewoman. Cinderella helped her finish the job, and thanked her with a big piece of cheese. Now Cinderella knows that she can count on Brie, and they always enjoy playing with the horses or going for a ruse together.



    Brie is a Pale Blue Mouse with pink hair and a white muzzle. She wears a silver tiara with blue gems and a yellow bow and pendant.

    Free Cubeecraft Paper Craft of Odd from Code Lyoko

    Odd Della Robbia is a member of the Lyoko Warriors, a team bent on defeating an artificial intelligence known as X.A.N.A. Odd and his friends Ulrich, Yumi, Jeremy and Aelita fight X.A.N.A. by entering the world of Lyoko, a computer program with several zones and towers. These towers get activated by X.A.N.A. and must be turned off to save humanity in the ‘real’ world. The towers are sort of like hacking tools that can enter the systems, like those at Kadic Academy, and cause havoc. Ulrich and his friends must reach the towers and allow Aelita to shut them down. Their main goal is to protect Aelita, because if she dies in the game, she does not regenerate, or at least that is the case for much of the series.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    In the ‘real’ world, Odd is a normal boy who attends school with a sense of humor only he gets. He is very relaxed most of the time but can put up a fight when needed, especially in Lyoko. As a member of the Lyoko Warriors, Odd is gifted with weapons when he transforms. When Odd enters Lyoko he slightly resembles a cat with claws and a tail. His weapon of choice is a gauntlet that can fire laser arrows, which he can shoot pretty well on target.

    Odd is a little bit…well…odd. He really embodies his name. I would almost call him the plucky comic relief, but he is a valued member of the Lyoko Warriors and their great friend.

    This cubeecraft features Odd from Code Lyoko. He is wearing his iconic purple shirt and pants with his crazy hairdo. This cubeecraft is free to download but I do take donations. Cubeecrafts take a while to make and any amount will help keep the hobby alive.

    To Build the Cubeecraft:
    Materials needed:
    Card stock
    x-acto knife

    To make:

    1. Cut out each item along the outer black lines.
    2. Cut along the white on each tab and on either side of the face (This is where the hair will attach) using the x-acto knife
    3. Cut along each red line using the x-acto knife
    4. Fold along each inner solid black line and slide each tab into the slots you created with an x-acto knife to form a cube of the head, body, arms, and feet
    5. Slide the arms through the red slots on either side of the body.
    6. Slide the feet through the red slots at the base of the body.
    7. Slide the now completed body through the red lots of the head.
    8. Slide the hair into the two white slots you made on either side of the head

    Perseid Meteor Shower Galactic Space Bark Recipe

    Perseid meteor shower

    It’s August, and do you know what hat means? We will be treated to the annual Perseid meteor shower! The meteor shower starts at the end of July and goes through most of August but the best time to see it is during the next few nights of August 13th and 14th at about 1am PST. What will be truly wonderful is that this year it is a new moon! That means there will be no moonlight and we will be able to see the shooting stars flying across the sky in all their splendor. It is a brilliant time to get the family together and go camping under the stars, whether it is in your backyard or in the forest. Set up a tent and begin the star gazing.

    While looking up in the sky for all the shooting stars, sneak in a few facts about the meteor shower and the stars. It is cool to learn when you don’t even know your learning. Sneak in facts like, “Bits of debris which enter Earth’s atmosphere are called meteors” or “A meteor shower is several bits of debris entering the earths atmosphere at a given time of the year like the Perseid meteor shower.” Watch the Video above for more interesting facts about the Perseid meteor shower. Maybe even pull out a constellation book and teach the new star gazers about the night sky. You can use one of the following books:

  • National Geographic Backyard Guide to the Night Sky
  • Constellations: A Field Guide To The Night Sky
  • Night Sky: A Field Guide to the Constellations
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Unintentional learning and star gazing can work up an appetite so don’t forget the yummy snacks. Perhaps make them themed to match the night sky. For example, make Star Shaped sandwiches or call a glass of milk The Milky Way. Of course you could always make some delicious Galactic Space Bark found on They only take 7 easy steps and require very few ingredients.
