Printable DIY Mermaid & Monster Coloring Game

My preschooler is very intrigued by learning to read lately. I must admit, it’s often difficult to get her to sit down and focus on a book for more than 20 seconds. I’ve found that playing games is an easy way to spark her interest in practicing her reading skills.
