These Valentines coloring pages are perfect for kids and kids-at-heart – everyone loves to color! Print out a Valentine’s Day coloring page or two, grab some colored pencils, markers, or crayons, and unwind with the therapeutic benefits of coloring – did you know that they say that coloring actually provides the same benefits as meditation? Increase your focus, clarity, and mood while having fun at the same time!
I love coloring activities. And most children do, too! That’s why I made COLORING PAGES FOR TODDLERS AND PRESCHOOLERS for today’s Freebie Friday!
Maleski’s company finds that children enjoy coloring with crayons because of their size and vibrant color choices. As an occupational therapist, Richards likes colored pencils because they can be sharpened to a nice point and accurately used in small spaces.
Or when they are too excited for an upcoming event- say a trip, and they are too restless, I recommend coloring as a way to calm them down.

Boundaries – Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with reprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage scratch paper coloring as often as possible, so that children are free to express themselves, for many preschoolers this is their only exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to respect the boundaries of the reprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
