diy kid’s valentines

Our kids are so excited for Valentine’s Day and admittedly, so are we! Valentine’s Day is such a fun celebration and our kids can’t wait to exchange Valentines with their friends. Valentine’s Day can also mean that our kids get a fairly big dose of sugar, so to help mitigate their sugar intake we decided to come up with some “sugar free” Valentines. Or in other words, Valentines with no candy. We wanted to make sure that our Valentines were gender neutral, included a fun little favor and were super simple to make. Using our printable templates, you can easily make these with your kids too. Just print the templates onto white card stock, cut them out and voila…you have homemade Valentines!

Watercolor Valentine:

Using glue dots we attached these adorable mini watercolor sets to our water color valentines. We found  our mini watercolor sets in the party favor section at Party City, but they are available on Amazon as well.

Glow Bracelet Valentine:

Kids love glow bracelets! Given the choice, they would wear them all day, every day. Fortunately, they are very inexpensive so they make the perfect favor. We punched two holes in our glow stick valentine cards and threaded a glow bracelet through each card. We found our bracelets in stores at Michaels, but you can also find them at Party City or even in bulk on Amazon.

Silly Straw Valentine:

These silly straw Valentines are almost too cute to part with, and they were incredibly easy and inexpensive to make. Using our silly straw valentine template we punched two holes into each card and threaded a straw through each one. We used these silly straws from Party City, but you can also find them on Amazon.

We hope you have as much fun making your Valentines as we did!
