Valentine ideas for kids should be easy to do and fun to hand out! The hearty (lol) celebration is just 14 days away. Here are my top Valentine card ideas along with a couple of DIY treats to get you started.
I love the simplicity and modern feel to this card. Kids are still excited to receive colored pencils and this is an easy project for any age.
Bubbles. What child does not love bubbles? A trip to the dollar store and you’re well on your way.
As a big sugar fan, I am surprised that many of the card ideas I chose do not include candy. I don’t think your child’s classmates will mind when they receive this awesome parachute man.
My boys love phones. Phones that work, phones that don’t work, and a phone with candy will be their new fave! I love that you can personalize this with your own sweet text message.
Conversation hearts + washi tape = one awesome game of tic tac toe Valentine’s Day style!
I think these Valentine card creatures are truly adorable. A great afternoon of creating awaits.
There is something really sweet about these. Maybe you’ll be lucky to find one of the characters resembles your child. (See the AWESOME chocolate popcorn recipe below to go along with this card)
And if you are looking for more of an old school feel to your valentine look no further. These free valentine printables by Hello Lucky are perfect.
ABC’s were never so sweet.
This is what I did for my son’s Valentine card last year. Inside the heart was enough space so he could write who it was for. There are many options out there for photo valentines and a plethora of examples can be found on Pinterest.
And this is his card for Valentine’s Day this year. I wanted to quickly show you how you can add any of the above cards to a bag of sweets (or whatever you choose to include) do it quickly and have it looking great. You’ll just need a few items to complete this project. My treat bags were just the right size for my son’s wallet cards. I picked up some heart shaped Brads from Michaels and got to work. Really all you do is add your treat to the bag, fold it over to keep things in place and poke a hole through both the card and bag together. I used a safety pin, but any sharp small object will work. I finished it off with a heart shaped Brad and voila!
If you are looking for something other than store bought candy or toys for your cards, try these.
I am not a huge popcorn fan, but I have to admit this recipe is SUPER delicious and easy and would look lovely in any treat bag. To put a valentine twist on it, you could melt red (or pink or purple) candy melts to your popcorn instead of the suggested white. Either way it is a crowd pleaser and kids will love the sprinkles!
These candy cane heart lollipops are adorable. They look pretty easy to put together, but will look like you spent hours making them ;)
I’ve made marshmallow pops in the past and they are always well received by little ones. I promise they are easy to make and the kids will rave about them. If you want to pick up some cute straws like the ones in the picture below (or washi tape, treat bags, heart shaped balloons, I could go on here :) check out my dear friend Ramona’s awesome shop Sweet Social.
