Valentine’s Day is coming, and for the younger kids it means lots of fun projects to do, both in and out of school. I think one of the things kids love to do the most is to color pictures. It’s not always easy to run to the store and grab coloring books, but most kids have lots of markers and crayons around so here are a few of the best places online to find printable Valentine’s Day pictures that you can download for them to color.

Valentine’s Day is no different, they have a small selection of nice pictures to color that load quickly. Not only do they have a nice selection of pictures, there you will also find games, puzzles, short stories and other fun activities to do. One other neat thing about this site is the pictures are not only available for download but can be colored right on the computer over and over again.

At Funschool, the selection of Valentine’s Day pictures is not very large, but is quite unique. What makes them different is the fun interface that makes it very easy for younger children. A bright and colorful interface gives you the option to print the pictures in black and white, or to color them first before print them. You can color them using the paint brush styled cursor, over and over again until you like what you see then print it out.
