Homemade Valentines


Hooray, it’s almost Valentine’s Day!  Kids, particularly school-aged ones, love this special February day for two reasons.  One reason is for the chocolate and heart-shaped candy (come to think of it, that’s my main reason, too).  The other reason is for the Valentines they’ll get from classmates!  While exchanging cute cards with positive messages in them is exciting for the kids, it can also get expensive (especially if you’re including candy!).  Try some of these homemade Valentines that your little Cupid will have fun making and their recipients will love, too!

Super Sweets

It’s a Valentine and a treat at the same time!  Who wouldn’t love to receive something like this?

Thumbprint Heart Card

This is truly a “hands on” craft!  You can also use a red ink stamp pad in lieu of red acrylic paint.

Secret Code Valentine

This is best for children 8 years and older.  Those who enjoy riddles will have fun cracking the codes your child creates!  Don’t feel limited to just jokes; with the provided secret code, your child can make any message he or she wants!

Swedish Fish Valentine

The template is free to download and print.  This is a sweet way to show appreciation for a classmate!

What are some of the most creative Valentines you ever seen?
