Have your children color each design with crayons, colored pencils and markers. I used these super cute heart crayons from OOLY.

For younger children, I would suggest they color all four designs first, then cut on the lines to create all four cards. Older children (6+) can cut the cards out first and then decide how they wish to decorate them.
Give the cards to friends as they are, or add them in an envelope with heart confetti. This is a great, easy valentine gift for grandparents, care givers and teachers this week!

Handmade Valentine Ideas

Hi moms! Here are some of my favorite DIY valentine ideas for children. One of my favorite memories from childhood is the memory of my mom and I making valentines on the dining room table every February. There was usually snow outside – and the house always seemed so bright and happy. Here are some easy ideas to get you started on making some cute love notes with your kids.
Materials you will need:
– Assorted paper (solid or patterned)
– Clip art or stickers
– Glue sticks
– Scissors
– Markers, crayons, colored pencils
*Optional – glitter, googly eyes, lace, etc.
Basic Heart
As an art teacher, I can tell you that kids love cutting out hearts. To make some basic hearts, gather square or rectangle pieces of paper, fold in half, and draw a line as shown – starting and ending on the fold.

Decorate with crayons or markers and don’t forget to write a cute sentiment like ‘Be Mine‘ or ‘I’m Sweet on You Valentine‘.

Monster Heart
Every February, I find that the boys in my classes really love making valentines with either a robot or a monster theme. This idea is the perfect design for any little artist. Simply cut a heart shape out of light colored construction paper (white, yellow or light pink). Sketch a monster face or body, and color in with crayons or colored pencils. Googly eyes would be great to use with this one – or sticker eyes (you can find both at any craft store). A cute saying to write on the front or back could be, ‘I Only Have Eyes for You!‘.

Fancy Heart
Choose a heart shaped doily to decorate. I attached mine to a folded greeting card using a glue stick. You can find heart or round doilies at any dollar store, craft shop or party shop. Carefully cut out clip art or add stickers to the front of the valentine. **Tip: A wonderful place online to find free, clip art for all occasions is The Graphics Fairy website**. You can be as creative as you want with this concept by cutting out phrases, letters or individuals pictures to add to your valentines. Instead of clip art, you could alternatively use images from a magazine or newspaper.
