FREE Valentine's Day Printables

Hey, friends!!!  Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I always have fun coming up with creative (and inexpensive!) ideas for little class valentines and am excited to share some "oldies but goodies" as well as a few new printables!

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 (you can find the cellophane bags that I like  HERE or pick them up at Hobby Lobby).  The kids write their names (and the names of their classmates if the teacher prefers that) on the cards with Sharpie and we're done! 

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


I feel like this one would be so cute with  these little puppy figurines and they're only $7 for 20!  Throw a couple little Hershey Kisses in there with the figure and call it a day!






Cacti are SO CUTE right now and I think that  these "growing" cacti would be so sweet (you'd probably need to print off a little piece of paper telling the kids to submerge them in water - but they say they grow to 2-4 times their original size!)  And $17 for 48 of them seems like a steal!




Luke is always SO INTO everything planets and I think this would be perfect with any of the little favors below OR some donut holes (get it?? planets?!?!) ;)





Everyone loves a good s'more and I think these would be so cute with s'mores supplies or a little snack mix with teddy grahams, chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.


Who doesn't love a narwhal?!?! ;)  While I couldn't find any narwhal favors, candy or stickers I think that you could easily attach these to a cellophane bag of silver Hershey's kisses.


Y'all know we LOVE us some cats in our house right now :)  Squishies are SO MUCH FUN and  this 9-pack of cat squishies is such a bargain!  A sheet of cat stickers, a kitty tattoo or even a pair of party favor sunglasses would be fun as well.




There are SO MANY cute unicorn things out right now and I think any of these would be precious as would a baggie of the pastel-colored goldfish crackers, mini marshmallows or even skittles!






I think these would be so cute with a little baggie of friendship bracelets.

I made this one for my boys last year...



...and then ordered this package of 144 Pokemon figurines for under $20.  There were enough for both boys to give all of their classmates 3 each and then they made extras for friends who aren't in their classes.  I also picked up these cellophane bags and then we were ready to go!


I was skeptical about the little figures, but they were actually way better than I anticipated.  They arrived the day after I ordered them (YAY!) and the boys had so much fun picking out which ones to give to each of their friends.  



And I shared these ideas last year, but here we go again so that everything is in one place :)


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 two years ago...

 

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 ;)  

I have several other ideas up my sleeve (Shopkins, Wonder (YAY!), camo (for army guys!), ballerinas, etc.) and will plan to have those posted next Wednesday.  I ran out of time tonight and have too much grading to do :)  If you have something specific you're looking for leave it in the comments and I'll see what I have time to do this weekend.  Promise!

Happy Thursday, Friends!!!

  10. These are all so great, thanks for sharing. I was thinking about my 2 year old giving bubble sticks to her friends. Do you have ideas for the card to go along with these?

  12. These are wonderful! I can execute the idea but definitely don't have the know how to come up with these adorable ideas. My 7 year old wants to give either gummy bears or sour patch kids to his class? Any thoughts for those?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love them all! I'm going to have a hard time choosing!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Really cute! Thanks for sharing! My son is going to love the one with the dogs!

  15. My boys are older now (21 & 14) so no more class valentines for us, but I am a first grader teacher, so I still get to celebrate with my students. These valentines are all sooo cute! How will I pick just one? And where do you find the time to do all that you do? Just wanted to say I love your blog, your unique sense of style and appreciate the way you share your precious family life with all of us. :)

  18. Thanks so much for these, Andrea! My kids are having trouble choosing just one to go with :) Am I correct in seeing that these all print out one per page? If so, is there a way to resize them to make it print multiples per page? I am SO not computer saavy.....

    1. I'm having the same problem. :(

    2. they're designed in 4x6 format to be printed like a photo. If you want to print multiple on a page your printer at home should give you that option when you click print.

  23. These are SO CUTE!! If you happen to cook anything up for a train loving little boy, I would love that!

    ReplyDelete
  24. These are all amazing! I thought my son would go for pokemon since he is obsessed, but of course, like all four year olds...he changed his mind. Any chance you could do a Hoppy Valentine's Day to go with some little plastic frogs? Love your blog and stories so very much.

    ReplyDelete
  25. They are so amzing! So creative!! I love them!! I am going to use the cat one for my preschooler or maybe my 10 yr old! so cute!! My boy wants to give “Mad mattr”, is there any chance you have something to go with that?? Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!

  26. Your growing cati link is wrong. Where did you find these? Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks so much for sharing! From a twin mom of preschoolers/school nurse, I so appreciate all of this greatness! Our school has gone to a 'no food in the classroom' rule, so anything without candy/food is a big WIN!

  28. Super cute!
    Where did you find the cacti? The link doesn't work. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Those are awesome! The circus ones would be great this year with the Greatest Showman craze going on! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. The link is incorrect to the cacti - where might I get these? Thanks so much! SOOO cute <3

    1. You need to right click and save the picture, then upload it to a photo printing site and have it printed as a 4x6 photo. Hope that helps!

  36. When I download the picture for the s'mores and upload to print through Walgreens, it says the resolution is too low (I am trying to print a 4x6). Has anyone had this problem? Did it turn out fine if you went ahead and printed? Thanks!
