There is no wrong or right way to colour them in, and there are so many designs that you could join in yourself with this fun and engaging activity. As a parent, I also know how relaxing colouring-in can be for my kids, and it is the best way for my children to wind down after a busy and often stressful day learning at school.
Not only will your kids be using their creative minds to colour in these printable bookmarks and building on their motor control and pencil holding skills, but they will also be making a useful tool that they will treasure and use with every book they read.

We know you and your kids will love our bookmark designs! We advise printing onto card or sticking the bookmarks onto another piece of paper to make them thicker, and we also advise adult supervision when cutting the bookmarks out. If you are looking for a little more flair you can also cut a little hole into the top of the bookmark and thread some string through to give it an extra fancy look.
If you loved these bookmarks, then you will also love our other free printable designs! We have Free Printable Superhero Masks, Free English Alphabet Flashcards, Free Printable Birthday Cards and many more free activities and crafts on JustFamilyFun.
