Printable Inspirational Quotes for Children

All these free printables are made with free tools on Canva, which also has a paid subscription. The paid version gives access to lots more bells and whistles such as templates, designs, graphics, stock photos, and fonts. On the free ‘plan’, all you have to do is register with an email address. Despite the limitations, it’s fun to play around with.

The background pictures used here are found on Unsplash (and free as well). The site encourages a link back to credit the artist/photographer. It is made really easy to do so: after downloading each photo, all you have to do is copy the credits. Giving proper credit where due is one of my pet peeves, so you’ll find that link by each picture below.

1. Dare to Dream

Dare to dream at any age, not merely as kids… but definitely as kids, right? Catamaran Black is one of my favorite fonts on Canva because it is extremely legible and very bold yet elegant. Photo by Aaron Burden.

2. Play

A crucial component of childhood. Photo by Xavi Cabrera, and the beautiful, big letters are in the font Anton.

3. Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

We all know the famous phrase from the world of Dr. Seuss… It never gets old. The quirky font used here is called Knewave. Photo by Diya Pokharel.

4. Be the change you wish to see in the world

So many other pictures could have worked as a backdrop for this famous quote by Mahatma Gandi. But you know what? It was a quick project. Part of that involves not straying off on an endless search for the perfect pic. Cooper Hewitt is the name of the font. Photo by Shapelined.

5. Imagine all the people sharing all the world

Can’t go wrong with this classic lyric by John Lennon. It has inspired generations of people since the seventies. The background photograph is by Photo by Gaël Gaborel. The font is Playfair Display in bold.

These designs are a bit different in that I usually work with paid or self-made graphics and elements. However, the hot air balloon on Unsplash stood out, and in the spur of the moment on just a small Chromebook, one thing led to the next.

Are you a complete newbie to graphic design? Importing pictures into Canva is as easy as a few mouse clicks.

Messing around with added text and filters to get something like these printables also is not a huge learning curve. Give it a try!
