Have you tried mini folding books before? I love them so much because they’re a bit different but not hard to make, and every kid I’ve ever met was super into working on their own book and proudly taking it home at the end of the day.
Today, I’ve created a super cute mini coloring book for you! It’s all about different gnomes for coloring plus writing prompts in one version of the book.

Materials for Gnomes Mini Folding Coloring Books
- PDF file (see below).
- 1 sheet of paper per mini book.
- Markers, pencils, colored pencils, crayons, or similar.
What’s in the printable PDF file?
The pdf file includes two pages:
- One page is for a mini folding book that only has gnomes to color (no writing prompts). There are seven pages with seven different gnomes, all with different hats and different beards/mustaches.
The first page is a title page that says “My Little Gnome Coloring Book” and has a line for a name or something else (the line doesn’t have a label).
- The second page of the printable has the same front cover page and seven pages with gnomes but this version also has three lines at the bottom of each gnome page with a simple one- or two-word writing prompt.
The writing prompts are
- This is…
- … wears …
- My gnome …
- … loves …
- … hat …
- This gnome …
- … has …
It’s much easier to put the mini folding books together than it looks. Check out the instructions in writing and in video form!
