Who else remembers the candy haul from class valentines when you were a kid? Red heart lollipops, boatloads of chalky conversation hearts, and chocolate kisses galore! However, times are changing. And if your kids’ schools are anything like mine, parents are “strongly discouraged” from sending in food or candy items with valentine cards. So, I let me girls pick out their favorite trinkets from the Target Valentine aisle, and made these kids printable valentine cards to go with them.
School Friendly Kids Printable Valentine Cards
Since my girls can’t give candy or food items with their class valentine cards, I let them choose a trinket from the Target Valentine aisle. Almost all the options are $3 for a set of 12-16. My 4 year old picked out some fun Valentine rings to give to her friends, and my 6 year old chose these awesome heart-shaped sunglasses. But we still needed cards to go with them!
Printable Emoji Valentines
As soon as I saw the heart sunglasses, all I could think of was my favorite emoji – the one with the heart eyes. So running with that as inspiration, I created a set of 4 unique heart eye emoji valentine cards. They appear 4 cards to one 8.5 x 11 standard size letter paper. Each card features an emoji face, with a eye-inspired song lyric.
You are my Sunshine Valentine!
I ONLY have [eyes] for you!
Can’t take my [eyes] off of you!
You’re my [heart] eyed pal!
Download them at the link below, and print them on cardstock. Then, cut them into individual cards, add slits where indicated to insert sunglasses, and let your kids sign and address them to their friends!
Class Valentine Ideas for Rings
My 4 year old is jewelry OBSESSED, so it was no surprise she chose these Valentine rings for her friends. These happened to be butterflies, but the cards are designed to use with any rings. Cards appear 4 to each 8.5 x 11 standard size letter page. Each card features a fun ring-theme phrase and a big Valentine heart.
Wild Thing, You Make My Heart Ring
Valentine, Put a Ring On It!
Bling For My Sweet Thing!
Will you Be Mine?
Download them at the link below, and print them on cardstock. Then, cut them into individual cards, add a slit in the center of the heart to insert the ring, and let your kids sign and address them to their friends! I also added a piece of tape on the backside of the card to hold the ring in place, but the cardstock gripped it firmly enough it probably wasn’t necessary.
