Free printable Valentines to color are a fun way for kids to customize the Valentines they distribute to their friends and classmates.
I’ve created 10 printable Valentines to color, all completely free. Yes, it’s so easy to purchase Valentines. But it’s a lot of fun to print your own Valentines, too, especially when you love coloring. When you print your own Valentines, you have a lot more creative control. You can personalize each Valentine quickly and easily. Having a selection of Valentines to print also makes it easier to give different Valentine designs to different people without purchasing lots of boxes of Valentines.
I have nine Valentine designs perfect for friends and classmates. The Valentines feature classic holiday elements, including teddy bears, cupids, arrows, candy, and of course, lots of hearts. I also have one Valentine design just for teachers.
Happy coloring and Happy Valentine’s Day!
Recommended coloring materials for the printable Valentines
Most likely if you have kids interested in coloring their own Valentines, you already own an abundance of coloring materials. Kids are welcome to use any coloring supplies and other craft materials (i.e., sequins, glitter glue, etc.) that they like their Valentines. I’m sharing a few of my favorite coloring materials that I really like for these card designs.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find washable fine tip markers with better color quality at a better price than Crayola Super Tips. You get a huge range of colors, and the finer tips are perfect for intricate coloring designs.
For younger kids, you can’t go wrong with Crayola Twistables crayons. You get a large selection of colors, and you don’t have to worry about anyone eating crayon or getting crayon paper everywhere. For older kids who want even more colors, go for the 64-count Crayola crayon box.
For younger kids, you also can’t go wrong with Crayola Twistables colored pencils. I spent years coloring with a large set of regular Crayola colored pencils and always loved them. If you want to go up a notch with colored pencils, pick up a set of Prismacolor Premier colored pencils. The color quality and blending ability is worth every penny.

Printing and cutting the Valentines to color
The Valentines will look and feel the best on heavy-weight card stock. I always keep Neenah white card stock on hand for DIY projects. It’s what I used for the Valentines pictured in this post. It has a nice weight for Valentines and a good surface for coloring.
When you print the PDF files, make sure “actual size” is selected on the scale drop-down menu. Actual size ensures the Valentines will print to the size that fits best for 4″ x 2.7″ envelopes.
I always use a paper cutter for this type of DIY project. A paper cutter makes the job quick and ensures straight edges. Depending on the age of your children, you may prefer to use the paper cutter yourself or have them cut the invitations by hand. With careful cutting, the invitations will look great cut by hand, too.
What envelopes work best for the free printable Valentines to color?
I designed the printable Valentines for 4″ x 2.7″ envelopes, which is a common envelope size. You can change the scale of your Valentines when you print them. But you may have more trouble finding envelopes that are a good fit.
The envelopes pictured in this post are from the Sulpa set of mini envelopes in red, pink, fuchsia, and white. I love the colors and quality. It’s also the only envelope set I found in this size online that came in a quantity less than 100.
If you don’t mind purchasing a larger quantity and are looking for a few more options, I also love silver or gold envelopes for Valentine’s Day. You can’t go wrong with kraft envelopes, too. Buying a larger quantity is perfect to split among multiple kids. Share them among your own kids or go in with a friend! They also keep well from one year to the next, which is great if you have kids that love to make their own Valentines every year.
