This fabulous movie is similar to Frozen, not only because of the fabulous magic involved, but because of the family values it inspires. It inspired acceptance of those who are different. And the song that the kids won’t stop singing from this one – “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” is a LOT less annoying than Let It Go if you ask me!

Tips and recommended supplies for coloring in these free Encanto coloring sheets
The Madrigal family is quite diverse. You’ll find that the colors recommended here are quite specific, to fit with the movie theme as well as to highlight this diversity.
For this reason, you’ll find it much more fun and accurate to color these free Encanto coloring sheets if you have a skin tone assortment. For myself, I use Prismacolor Premier alcohol markers skin tones. For my kids, we prefer Crayola’s colors of the world markers, crayons, or colored pencils.
However, if you’re doing this with very young kids, I’d recommend whittling it down to make it simpler. Just stick with a tan shade for most of the skin, and offer a brown and black as well. A peach colored crayon can work for some of the lighter skinned family members.
Colors of the World Markers vs. Crayons vs. Colored pencils
This fabulous line from Crayola separates skin tones into three color families – warmer, cooler, and pinker tones. Each one comes in varying shades from light to dark. These are fabulous for coloring in some shades of hair and eyes as well.
Crayons – these are fabulous for young kids to lay down quick color. You have more variation and can layer a little if you feel like none of them are quite there.
Markers – You’ll need to stick to that specific color (no blending), but this is fabulous for slightly older (older preschool-grade school) kids to get exactly the color they want in a solid fill.
Colored Pencils – I recommend these mainly for older kids and adults who would love to layer, play around, shade, and get a more exact tone. Kids might find it frustrating as it doesn’t fill the spaces as quickly, and the color isn’t as rich as markers.
And my final tip: whichever tool you choose for coloring these free Encanto coloring sheets, having a color swatch handy can help you choose the shade YOU want! To do this, simply jot down the color of each tool using that tool to write it.
