Valentine’s Day is around the corner, time to start brainstorming your kids’ school Valentine card ideas! From to simple to crafty, we’ve gathered up some of our favorite DIY cards that you (and the kids) can make. Really!
– Super simple to make, and who doesn’t love Pop Rocks? (find the free labels from Better Homes & Gardens)
Bouncy Ball Valentine – Slip a bouncy ball in a clear bag, topped with a card and cute saying (“You Make My Heart Bounce”, “Hope You Have a Ball This Valentine’s Day”, “So Happy You Bounced Into My Life”).
Photo Valentine – These photo valentines get extra points for uniqueness! Snap a photo of your child, Photoshop in some festive embellishments and add a lollipop for a truly personalized card!
I Dig You Valentine – Pair a toy sand shovel with candy in this fun Valentine, perfect for little ones!
Don’t Ever Change Valentine – Chocolate coins in a plastic baggie, finished off with a ribbon and card. Cute!
Fishy Valentine – Skip the sweets with this fun (and inexpensive) fishy snack valentine idea. Substitute Swedish Fish if you prefer!
Heart Crayon Valentines – These are a bit more work than some of the other ideas, but these heart shaped crayons are fun to make with the kids, let them help peel and break the crayons, then create their own patterned Valentine’s for their friends!
Just Write Valentine – Not too sweet, and great for older kids who can't bring food to school, like mine!
Mini Cereal Valentines – A cute and unique idea using mini cereal boxes and spoons embellished with the recipient’s name, or add a tag that says "I CEREALsly Like You!"
I Chews You – Gumballs in a tube, sweet!
