Free Printable Coloring Bookmarks

Reading in itself provides so many benefits but I recently read an article about how parents should encourage their children to read with a bookmark. It got me thinking about not only the many benefits that using a bookmark can provide when reading but how much fun my children enjoy using them.

I enjoy using bookmarks for many different reasons. They are great placeholders and they help keep your books in tip-top shape much longer.

Since I enjoy making my own crafts and coloring, I think making your own bookmarks is a great craft that you can do with your kids and a way to get the benefits of bookmarks and crafts at the same time. Here is a list of some of my favorite coloring bookmarks.

Don’t forget to scroll down for a FREE printable coloring bookmark page that I have put together.

Who doesn’t love mermaids? I mean I still love watching “The Little Mermaid” with my daughter and still find myself coloring Mermaid Coloring Pages. So I couldn’t help but add some mermaid bookmarks to this list. 

These mermaid and merman coloring bookmarks are not only cute but make a fun craft that can be hung on your child’s page. What a fun idea! Get the free printable here.

FREE Floral Coloring Bookmarks

I love bookmarks and I enjoy coloring flowers, so I thought a perfect combination for a reading bookmark  is a floral coloring bookmark. I made these bookmarks because the designs are so intricate that you can get the stress relief you need as you color and afterward you have a beautiful bookmark to use for your books.
