Valentines Coloring Pages
Many parents underestimate the importance of coloring. It’s more than just a pastime for kids – it has serious developmental benefits that help children grow and learn.
Why Use Coloring Pages
I love to use coloring pages when I read-aloud to my kids. Coloring keeps their hands busy and their bodies still while allowing them to listen to the story without getting antsy or fidgety.
Coloring – whether with pencil, marker, or crayon – provides children with an opportunity to practice holding a writing utensil the correct way. It helps develop the fine motor muscles in a young child’s hands, fingers, and wrists.
As children engage with their coloring pages, they strengthen their ability to focus and concentration skills.
Preparing the Printables
These print-and-go coloring pages for kids just need to be printed, and then you’re all set with a fun holiday homeschool activity for your kids.
This printable includes ten different Valentine gnome pages for kids to color. Four pages have words on them. The other six are just Valentine gnome scenes.
