I recently saw a commercial for 1-800-Flowers where they show video clips of people thanking the special women in their life. It was one of the most inclusive commercials I have ever seen on the subject of Mother’s Day and celebrating women. People were thanking their grandmas for adopting them, their aunts for being their role model, their moms, of course, for being their heroes. It was beautiful to see so many women and types of relationships honored in their commercial. I think we need so much more of this so that every child understands that families can look many different ways.
On that note, Mother’s day IS coming – so if you’ve got kids who love to participate in giving gratitude and gifts to the special women in their lives, you’ll love these free printable coloring pages!
I shared some free printable Mother’s Day cards the other day and today, I am sharing 15 coloring pages for moms and Mother’s Day with sweet messages that kids will love to color and gift.
While some of these are specific to Mother’s Day, others would be perfect any day of the year, even for a mom’s birthday. Some are also not specific to moms, so they could be used for any woman in your life that is special to you.
Free Coloring Pages for Mother’s Day:
I love the range of imagery on these coloring pages. There are so many cute characters and sweet messages. These would be perfect to print for a group of kids or a classroom where they could choose their favorite and color them.
I started looking for affordable ways to show gratitude for moms and the women in our lives after spending over $50 last year just on cards. Most of the cards were around $8.00. I couldn’t believe it. I happen to LOVE buying cards for people, always have, and I’m certainly willing to spend money on that perfect card. But, we were having a tough year last year and I wanted to buy a special gift for each of our favorite women, too. I ended up feeling like I would’ve rather put that $8.00 towards the gift and found a different way to share a sweet message.
I don’t think that the card itself is what they love most – it’s the message in the card. So, having kids spend their time lovingly coloring a picture for them or filling in a sweet card will be just as meaningful to these women – and it can give us the opportunity to either stay in our budget or allocate those funds to the gift.
Here’s the thing: life ebbs and flows. Some years we are working with more and some years we are working with less. This shouldn’t make us feel like we can’t give our thanks and love to the women we care about. You know what I mean? One of our favorite women loves receiving pictures and handmade gifts from the kids and she keeps them. I go to her house and it’s like a shrine to my children. Beautiful. I definitely had her in mind when I was putting this post together. I know she’ll love receiving some of these.
