When I have time, I’m all about DIY valentine ideas, so you’ll find that we have a few to share with you. But when life gets busy (which feels like every single day usually), Valentine’s Day can pop up on me! So we’ve got some fun printable valentines that you can print for free and put together with your kids!
Your kids will have some of the cutest valentine cards and you won’t have to spend hours slaving over them! It’s a win for everyone!
Printable Valentines & DIY Valentine Ideas
Sure, it’s easy to roll out to the store and pick from the huge variety of Valentine’s Day cards they have for the kids to give to their friends. Some stores (hello Target!) even have little kits that you help you get a more DIY look without having to dream up the idea or go find all of the supplies yourself.
But if you really want to go a more DIY route, our printable valentine cards and other ideas are a good middle ground!
So check out all of our ideas and find one that you like! If it’s a printables post, rest assured that they’re all FREE Valentine printables!
Some might need a few extra supplies, but some are just the free printable Valentine’s Day cards so you can print, cut, sign and party!
No Candy Printable Valentines for Kids
If you’re looking for a DIY-ish idea that is a bit more than just a card, but also keeps it super easy, we’ve got the cutest one for you!
Our Valentine Duck Printable is one of my favorites! You can find Valentine themed rubber ducks (or even regular rubber ducks) at almost any store.
Or you can use our affiliate links to order some and get ready!
Then all you have to do is download the printable valentines cards and stick your ducks on!
You can find the full instructions here.
DIY Gum Printable Valentine’s Day Cards
Weston loves chewing gum and it’s a great option for a “candy” Valentine that isn’t just another lollipop, candy hearts, or chocolate.
Just like our rubber duck Valentine’s Day card, our DIY gum cards are free printable Valentines Day cards. So you can pick up some packs of your favorite chewing gum, print out your valentines and you’ll be ready for the party with some cute Valentines!
You can get the full directions and printable here.
Animal Themed Printable Valentines for Kids
Animals are a favorite with almost every kid, so it only makes sense that we put together a few free printables with some animal themes.
We’ve got a cute elephant treat bag that’s easy to print and put together! Then you can print out some of the coordinating jungle animal cards. There’s an elephant, lion, tiger, and zebra!
If you’re having a themed party, an animal theme can be a great one because it’s gender neutral and there always seem to be animal themed Valentine goodies! Everyone loves tiger stripes and cheetah prints, right?
Even More DIY Valentine Ideas
If you’re looking for more DIY or printable valentine ideas, we’ve got a few more round up posts that share some of our other favorite ideas!
DIY Valentines are a fun way to spend time together creating some for your kids to share with their friends. They’re a great way to spend a winter afternoon together!
I’ve got my eye on a few ideas for this year (they all have FREE printables!)
