I love the idea of a multi-purpose Valentine that won’t just be eaten and forgotten about.
When I was thinking about making these printable Valentines I knew I wanted to provide a little pencil or pen, plus some space for drawing. I think it would be really fun for the giver to include a special sketch for his or her friends, or maybe they could even collaborate on something together! The drawing squares are the perfect size for a kid-made comic strip.
These would accommodate any smallish pencil or pen (golf pencils?). I picked up the pint-sized pens used in mine at Walmart in bags of 12 for $2.
Please enjoy these free printable Valentines offered in 4 colors: Red, Pink, Green, Blue.

Flowers are a traditional Valentine’s Day Gift, but why not let the kids bring flower seeds to their classroom friends?! This is a simple printable template of an envelope with a decoration on the front and “To” and “From” fields (not visible above) on the back. It’s as simple to put together as printing, cutting, and gluing. Plus, I was able to find a great selection of seed packs from the Dollar Tree! I still have a few more samples to make for my kids before they decide which valentines they’ll choose, but if we use this seed packet valentine, they I think we’ll also include a little slip of paper with simple planting instructions on the inside (ex: plant in a sunny spot).
Here is the printable seed packet template!

Pretty much ever since my last sip of eggnog was had, I’ve been scheming up Valentine’s Day ideas for the kids. While I was poking around online for ideas I found this truly awesome list of clever/cheesy (there’s a fine line isn’t there?) Valentine quotes. I have a handful ideas which I’ll be posting in two series: The first of which is the Sugar-Free Valentines Series.
So, first up we have this happy little goldfish printable to send along with a snack-sized pack of goldfish. The kids can write their own “To”s and “From”s in the space at the bottom. I haven’t shown it to the kids yet. I think when I’ve finished all of my samples I’ll let them chose which ones they want to give to their friends.
If you like this one, I’ve provided a pdf printable of it here, which is free for your personal use. Please let me know if you have any problems opening or printing the file!
