This year, Claire attends pre-school five days a week. Because the class is split into a T-TH crowd and a M-W-F crowd, we have two of everything…two Thanksgiving shows, two Halloween carnivals, and two Valentine’s Day parties. So I try to be realistic about making Valentines – I need them to be easy enough that I’m not regretting my decision to make my own. And along those lines, they need to be something a four-year-old can help with. Because I am not making 24 Valentines for my kid to take to school when she can help with them!
I wanted there to be as little cutting/pasting/crying as possible, so I made these SUPER easy. They’re also treat-free, in case your child has a treat-free party to attend. Here’s how to make your own printable Valentine’s Day cards for kids.
They’re simple enough to make that my four-year-old could do most of these on her own (woohoo!).
Here’s what you need to make them:
- Printable label download (you can download that for free below)
- Avery labels (or, you can print on sticker paper – but then you have to cut them out yourself, and I designed these to fit the label paper to make them as simple as possible)
- Little treat baggies (I used these, but any will do)
- Stickers (I bought these because they were super cheap and had a ton of stickers…the only part that I had to do was cut these into individual stickers)
Download the free printable labels here. Have your child sign each label. Toss a few stickers into each baggie, seal with a label, and TA-DA! Valentines are DONE.
