18 Creative Kids Valentines Cards Ideas for School with Printables

My girls have always loved Valentine’s day class parties when they get to give (and receive) a whole bunch of kids’ creative Valentine cards with little gifts on Valentine’s day.

Valentine’s school day activities usually involve lots of fun crafts like homemade Valentines full of sweet messages, paper hearts, and sometimes teachers will have the kids decorate a Valentine box with their name on it in creative ways.

But the candy treats and toys that they exchange with cute love cards are the anticipated stars of the show.

And I’ve got lots of fun printable Valentines and unique ways to put a personal touch to your kids’ special delivery.
