Don’t you love Saint Valentine’s Day? I think it is one of my favorite feast days. As a child I remember making Valentine Boxes at school to collect our valentines. I think we made them out of empty tissue boxes that we decorated. Back then, Valentine’s Day was very secular for me. As an adult I see it as a great way to Catechize. Our Catholic faith is all about love; REAL LOVE!
This year I thought I would make a coloring sheet of Valentines to color, cut out and gift. I recommend printing these on sturdy paper such as cardstock. You can buy this in a package at craft stores or you can get individual sheets from your local copy/office product store. Remember to print coupons from craft store websites to get a good deal.
You might embellish them with glitter gel pens or regular glitter. I spent a lot of time designing these and I hope you like them. Below is the link and an example of what they might look like colored. I used a combination of Crayola washable markers and Prismacolor Colored pencils as well as BIC and Sharpie permanent markers.
To print this “uncolored” coloring sheet, click HERE. AND I also have a Saint Valentine coloring page HERE.
And a new Valentine coloring page with 8 MORE VALENTINES HERE.
For a fun project using these Valentines, see my post, Vellum Valentine’s (Stained Glass).
Here’s what my new Valentine coloring page looks like:

Dearest Gina. I am so glad that your son enjoys coloring and I am so glad that my coloring pages are put to such good purpose. I hope that others see this idea of yours. It is a great idea!
Thank you so much for the beautiful Catholic valentine coloring pages. I want to let you know how my family uses them. I have a son who can be a handful at Mass (he has some attention/focusing issues) but he loves to color and to give the sweet old ladies who tolerate sitting around us, his masterpieces. I love the size and the style of the valentines. I print a sheet for Sunday Mass and cut them out. When he needs to focus and be still, I pull them out with some crayons or map pencils and he has a perfect sized coloring page with enough details that will keep his attention. The size is perfect because they are not distracting to those around us. I’ve seen the ladies put his “gifts” in their prayer books as bookmarks.
I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your beautiful coloring pages and how they are helping one momma to keep herself and her kids focused during Mass. If you are inspired to make more in the mini size I would certainly appreciate it.
May God bless you and your family.
