Toddler DIY Valentine’s Cards

Let the fun begin!  It’s Valentine’s Week and time to think about hearts, candy and loved ones.  This weekend I decided it was time to have the munchkins create valentines for their teachers.  They got so into crafting, they even made more for family members.

I gathered the following items that I had around the house, or had picked up at the local Dollar Tree:

  • Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Doily Hearts
  • Valentine Foam Pieces
  • Glue
  • Envelopes
Then I went to the computer and printed out words on colored computer paper:
  • Happy Valentine’s Day
  • Happy Valentine’s Day To A Great Teacher
  • I Love You
  • We Love You
  • xoxo,
  • etc.
Then I gathered the colorful trays shown above so that kids wouldn’t get glue on the coffee table and gave them their own names to put at the bottom of the cards.

They really enjoyed seeing their names.  And since my son, 5 year old, is reading, he had fun picking out his own sayings, even grabbing a pen and writing his own personal message on some of the cards.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Balancing The Chaos!

  1. I kinda like the original things kids begin saying once they are a little more able to write their own messages. Saw two shared last week that cracked me up:

    “Mom and Dad, you are lucky to be alive.” (I’m sure it wasn’t MEANT as a threat.”

    “Thank you for giving me food so that I don’t die.”
