This is a super fun holiday all about showing love for each other. My kids love making homemade valentines for their friends and so I rounded up our favorites for this year. Simple, cute, and cheap. WIN!
Love Bug Valentine
Gummy worms (or other gummy bug)
Stapler and staples
We found a bunch of free printable’s for this valentine online but my kids also wrote out a few of their own just for fun. Either fill out or create your own “to” and “from” card, fill up snack baggie with your bugs and seal, fold card-stock printable over the top and staple it to the baggie. Viola! Super cute and tasty.
Race Car Valentines
Markers or colored pencils
My girls loved this one for the boys. We found a value pack of cars at the store and they decorated the cards by hand. We hole punched a hole on either side of the car and tied them on. It was almost too easy and I am sure the boys who received them loved it!
You Blow Me Away Valentines
Toy recorders (bundle pack from the dollar section)
Markers or pencils
Of course kids love anything that make a super obnoxious sound so this valentine was a big winner. We found bundle packs of these small recorders at Walmart in the dollar section. After tracing a heart template, the kids were able to trace and cut out hearts of their own to write on and tape to the recorders. Cute, cheap, and noisy!
