Valentine’s Day bookmarks to color

Included in the free printable bookmarks to color are 6 different Valentine bookmarks, 3 per page.

These free printable Valentine bookmarks are free to print but are for personal or classroom use only. Scroll to the bottom of the page to get the pdf file.

These print better when printed on card stock (this is the one we use and love.)

Valentines bookmarks

Three bookmarks will print on each page. And I highly recommend using a paper cutter rather than scissors (unless you have a very steady hand!)

Each bookmark measures 2.5 x 8.5 inches and there are 3 on each page. All ready to be colored in with either pens or crayons.

Get the kids to color them in bright colors. When they have finished I highly recommend grabbing your laminator to will keep them looking newer for longer!  If you don’t have one, a strip of packing tape placed on either side will help prevent tearing and extend the life of the bookmark. 

Valentines Day bookmark to color in

These can be used instead of printable Valentine’s Day cards to color and handed out at school, or given as gifts to the teacher. They will also be perfect as treats at a Valentine’s Day party.

They can either be colored in by the children before handing them out or if you are running short on time, you could leave them blank. Either way, they will be a great Valentine’s gift.

You can add a small hole in the top and tie some colored ribbon or string, for an extra special bookmark.
