DIY Valentines For Kids


With Valentine’s Day approaching, your kids might already be thinking about the Valentines that they are going to give and receive. We’ve gathered some DIY Valentines that you and your kids can easily create together!  


Buy a box of Teddy Grahams and have your kids design their own labels to create something like this from Motherhood Moments.


This is probably one of my favorite ones I found, “You Color My Heart” from A Mom With A lesson Plan. Have your kids draw a heart with a design in it, photocopy their design and then their friends can color it in.


Don’t want to send candy?   Hi! It’s Jilly shares an idea that kids can help put together.


Does your child love making Rainbow Loom bracelets? Use these free printables from Pandora’s Deals to attach to bracelets.


Here is an idea for younger kids from Kiwi Crate, use their fingerprints to create hearts. Want to make a set for the whole class? Make one and color copy them, kids can then add their own messages.


Another example of fingerprint a heart comes from Kaleas, cut out a template of a heart for kids to follow and then they can create any design they want in a shape of a heart!


Here are two different ways you can use a photograph to create one of a kind Valentines, with a little treat attached! The first from Andrea Burns Photography and another from Design Mom.


 While there are several versions of these Lollipop Valentines on Pinterest, I love this one from Teach Mama because they were created by her kids.


A Spicy Perspective includes directions, a free printable and trail mix recipe to create these unique Valentines.


There are several versions of this Valentine around the internet too, but I thought this one from Fabulously Frugal (scroll down a little bit) was very easy, kids can even write the message themselves and she gives you some ideas to vary the message. Don’t want to use candy? You can also use Goldfish crackers.



Happy Valentine’s Day From SaratogaMama!
