Sure, you could run out to the store and pick up a pack of ready-made valentines for your child’s class at school. But wouldn’t it be more fun if they gave each of their friends a valentine bookmark coloring page? These exclusive and love-ly (see what I did there?) bookmarks are designed by children’s book author and illustrator, Melanie Hope Greenberg. And like all of the coloring pages Melanie makes for you, they are totally free.
Before you print these out, you’ll want to decide the following: will each classmate get their own printable sheet with four cute valentine bookmarks to color on their own? Or, will your child color and cut out enough single bookmarks for everyone? A third option is to give a single uncolored bookmark to each child. Which will it be? You decide!

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
