NEW Valentine's Day Printables

Hey, friends!!!  I was putting dates in my planner yesterday and realized that Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I always have fun coming up with creative (and inexpensive!) ideas for little class valentines and thought I'd get a jump start on it this year :)  

When I design printables I create them in a 4x6 format that you can fold in half and staple to the top of a cellophane bag with a treat inside or directly to the top of a snack (I pick up my cellophane bags at Hobby Lobby).  The kids write their names on the cards with Sharpie and we're done! (our school asks that the kids NOT write the other student's names on Valentines.  Just that kids sign their own names)

ALL OF THE VALENTINES BELOW CAN BE RIGHT-CLICKED, SAVED AND THEN PRINTED.  ENJOY!!!

My boys LOVE dinosaurs and I think Mason is going to go for these this year...


These dinosaurs are $7/dozen and would be a great alternative to candy and these tattoos are $5 for six dozen!!! 



If you have a girl who loves lip smackers as much as mine these might be for you :)  And here's a pack of 8 lip smackers for $9.50.  A little bit pricey... but depending on how many you need it could be a great option.


I feel like everybody loves pirates, and these would be cute with a cellophane bag of chocolate gold coins attached to it (or if you couldn't find chocolate gold coins Rolos would work!).  Or if you're trying to avoid candy you could do pirate eye patches (click HERE for a pack of 24 for $7) and/or bandanas.



And now... just in case none of those floated your boat here are some from years past!

First up is something girly and fun!  I used Annie's Bunny crackers and they turned out precious!

 

My kids love Barnum Animal Crackers and this one is great for boys or girls (or as a party favor for a circus party!)

 

Is there really anything better than a Little Debbie brownie??? :)  These football ones are sporty and fun!

 

And of course, Star Wars :)

 

Here are Luke's Minecraft valentines from last year...

 

And Griffin's...

 

And Mason's...

 



This was Luke's Valentine from a few years ago.... I filled the bags with crayons and skittles :)

 


And then three years ago...



I picked up the Lego shaped candy at our local "vintage" candy store :)


This was Mason's a couple of years ago and it had one of my Monster Cookies inside...


Griffin's were apple-themed :)

 

and my friend Amber used the same printable, but with GoGo Squeeze! CUTE!


These were little food tents I designed for a small group dinner a few nights ago, but last year lots of people were super creative and used them for lollipops, pop rocks...


... applesauce, goldfish, swedish fish...


... clementines, banana runts...


... uncrustable sandwiches and berry fruit snacks...


And I got the biggest kick out of seeing everyone's pictures! :)




I hope you found something you can use and hopefully get a head start ;)  Happy Wednesday, Friends!!!

  23. Thank you so much for all these great ideas! I'm going to let my four guys take a look and pick out what they want to take to their class. I love them all and surely can't decide myself. One of my favorite things is sending Valentines and celebrating Valentine's Day, or pretty much any holiday with my family for that matter! You are such a bright spot, and a great encourager of moms to love on your kids and do things with them. Thank you!

  24. My daughter used the "I like you BERRY much" one last year. It was so cute! My kids would especially love the "Be Mine craft" one! You are so talented! Mind sharing what kind of software you use for designs like this?

  25. So I tried to order a few different designs but I'm getting an error that's saying "Poor Image Quality" on the Bunny, Circus, Star Wars & Lips. Anyone else having trouble? These are so adorable & I'd really like my kids to se them.

    1. Try clicking on the picture first and then right clicking. Otherwise you're trying to save an image that's too small

    2. Mine were saying the same thing but I printed them anyways from CVS sand they are a little blurry but it doesn't bother me! Ha! I'm using the apple of my eye one - I got some baby food pouches to use with it - do you know what bags those in the above picture are in?
