You’ve seen them, I’m sure. ..those beautiful coloring books meant for adults only. The ones with the intricate designs which instill a sense of peace and calm while coloring them.This time, instead of saying “Why do kids get to have all of the fun?”, I ask myself “Why do adults get to have all of the fun with the stress-busting coloring books?”
Well, here we have the same thing for kids, but the design isn’t as complicated. These could be printed out on heavier paper and used as Valentine cards. Do not bother coloring them in if you’re going to give them to a large number of people (like the classroom valentine exchange).
The valentine recipient gets to do that!
I'm not trying to discourage you from the fun of coloring. If you want to color some too, go right ahead! By the way, if the whole class or large group color in these hearts, they make a very pretty display! Good for bulletin boards.
The “heart art” has varying degrees of difficulty. Each page is labeled as such: 1=easy;
2=moderate; 3=challenging. There are 11 different designs. The pages don’t necessarily have
to be used as valentine cards; they can be used for other purposes as well.
I’m sure as a creative teacher, parent, grandparent, etc. you have lots of ideas how these can be put to good use! Some other ideas:
could be used as rewards or incentives; great as a calming down and re-focusing activity too. (such as right after recess, a fire drill, a special event, etc.).
Have fun…color with joy and comfort.
