Valentine’s Ideas for Kids – Roundup of Easy, Last-Minute Valentine Ideas

Last Minute Valentine Ideas

I know that Valentine’s is only a day away, but there may be many of you still undecided on what you want to do for Valentine’s for your kids (or your kids are undecided & need some direction). Hopefully I’m not the only last-minute mom. :) I love the idea of homemade Valentine’s and there are some super-cute Valentine ideas I’ve seen on Pinterest, so I thought I’d compile some of my favorite Valentine ideas for you.

Smores Packets:

 

I stumbled across this super cute Valentine’s idea last year over on the Domesticated Lady blog and the best part is that she offers a  FREE printable for the gift tag to go with it.  I changed it up just a bit but there are several different ways you could make these. We did these last year (pictured below) and then again this year for my daughter’s preschool class yesterday. We were in a hurry last night & totally forgot to take pictures of those, though. These could get more expensive for larger classes, though – but these are great for a smaller preschool class or for a playdate or Valentine’s Party.

Items Needed:

  • Graham Crackers ($1.99)
  • Hershey bars (mini or snack bar size)  - they should have these at the Dollar store or I bought mine at Walmart (you could just use a regular wrapped chocolate candy that you find for cheaper, though to keep the cost down)
  • Heart-shaped Peeps - I found these for $1.28 at Winco & Target (or even better, buy the pink heart-shaped marshmallows where you get a big bag for around $2 at Walmart or $1 for a bag at the Dollar Tree!)
  • Plastic Bags – I used these sucker bags at Michaels last year (for $1.99 which had 20 bags) – but this year, I was going for frugal, so just used regular sandwich bags

Lollipop Lily:

I’ve made these Lollipop Flower Valentine’s 2 or 3 times for Valentine’s with my kids. I love them because they turn out so cute, yet they are so simple and very frugal.   If you have older kids, they could even cut out all the flowers and then assemble them with the lollipops, but even for younger kids, they can add all the lollipops and then sign their name.  This picture shows using  tootsie roll pops, but you could just as easily use regular Dum-Dum’s or other lollipops that you have on hand for a very inexpensive Valentine idea.

 Pop Quiz Valentines:

This is such a fun idea to make with ring pops – to make Pop Quiz Valentine’s.  I found a box of about 15 ring pops at Walmart for around $3-4. Over the Big Moon has a free printable which you can print off and then stuff baggies with a ring pop & maybe some extra wrapping.  Staple the printable tag to the top and you’ve got a super easy but fun Valentine for the kiddos.

 Glow Stick Valentines:

We found a bunch of glow sticks in our craft supply as we were decluttering, so I think this is what we will be doing with my older gal who’s in First Grade. Kommunicated has a cute FREE printable to use with glow sticks, so make sure to head over to her site to print off the tag to add to the glow sticks.  I like the idea that it’s not candy as the kids will be getting tons of candy with Valentine’s and their party, and kids always love Glow Sticks. They’re super cheap, too! My girls love to take several glow sticks into the bathroom & turn out the lights and we practice making letters with 2 or 3 glow sticks.

Heart-Shaped Homemade Crayons:

My little gal already exchanged Valentine’s yesterday with her preschool and even though she loved the candy, one of her favorite items was a heart-shaped crayon that was made from recycled crayon pieces. She’s been having fun writing with it & trying different angles to get different colors. Our Best Bites  has a great tutorial on how to make these heart-shaped crayons along with a FREE printable! The best part is that the only cost would be the cost of the bags & paper as hopefully you have a lot of broken crayons hanging around your house that you can recycle!  I think I want to try this with my preschooler next year!

Valentines Day Free Printable Card – “I Chew’s You”

Valentine's Day Card Printable I Chew's You

This is our last of the Valentines Day FREE printable card options we are sharing this week. I love the sentiment of the “I Chew’s You” saying and the best part about this printable is it can be used with so many different options of candy or gum. You can really keep this low-cost by choosing candy that is inexpensive such as the bags of gum from the dollar store or gummy bear candies in the bulk bins.  There are often many coupons available for packs of gum as well, so you may already have this in your stockpile to use with these Valentine cards.

It would be a fun Valentine to leave for your spouse in the morning on Valentine’s Day, too! Let us know if you have any other fun ideas to pair up with this printable card.

Here are a few of the different options:

  • Gumballs
  • Any gummy candies – I have pictured gummy Valentine looking rings (watermelon flavored – beware, these are totally addictive – you can’t just eat one), but any of the gummy candies work
  • Salt water taffy – this was my daughter’s favorite – Winco has Valentine taffy right now
  • Pack of gum or individual pieces of gum  - the Dollar Tree is a great option for bags of gum
  • Laffy Taffy

Free “I Chew’s You” printable:

I Chew's You Valentines Day printable

Items Needed:

Valentine Chewy Candy at Winco

  • Chewy Candy or gum
  • Plastic Bag – you could just use a regular plastic sandwich baggie(non-resealable). I had some bags leftover from a previous project from Michaels. You can buy these with a printable/mobile coupon from Michaels
  • Cardstock – to print your printable on & make it sturdier
  • Ribbon – to tie it all up

Directions::

  • Print off the “I Chew’s You” printable on card stock
  • Cut out your Valentine printables & use a small hole punch to put a hole in one of the top corners (I also put a layer of black cardstock in the back just to make it stand out more)
  • Tie it all together with ribbon

This is a fun last-minute Valentine idea where you can pull together any fun chewy candies that you have & create a unique Valentine’s card for kids or adults.

Free Valentine Card Printable – “You’re a Great Catch”

 

Free Valentine Card Printable You're a Great Catch

We’ve been sharing FREE Valentine Card printable ideas with you all week and here’s a great printable that can be used in a few different ways. The “You’re a Great Catch” printable can be paired up with Swedish Fish for a yummy treat. Or for a healthier snack but still adding some fun on Valentine’s Day, make up little baggies of Goldfish crackers or just buy the pre-packaged Goldfish crackers to tape these to.

I found the Swedish fish candies once again at Winco, both in the bulk food section as well as a large bag on an end cap for $3.98 for 1.9 lbs. The bulk candies were just $2.18/lb for the Nordic fish (if you want the multi-colored).

Goldfish crackers

You can also buy the Goldfish in bulk in a large box either at Costco or Winco as well. If your child’s school requires pre-packaged items, then you can buy the packaged Goldfish snack bags & tape the printable to the front.

Free Printable Valentine Card Idea – “I’m Bananas for You”

Preschool Valentines Day Card Free Printable

Free Printable Valentine Card – “I’m Bananas for You”

We’ve been sharing FREE Valentine’s Card printables this week and this printable is a fun one as it’s different than many of the typical card sayings.

If you’re using this with younger kids  you could actually use real bananas as a fun playdate treat. Otherwise, you can use the candy bananas for a yummy treat. I’m sure they have the banana candy at party stores or other stores, but I was at Winco checking out all the other Valentine candy and they didn’t have the banana candy by itself, so I just use the bag of candy fruit runts & separated out the bananas.  

Free “I’m Bananas for You” printable:

Items Needed:

Fruit runts candy for Banana Valentine card

  •  Candy (or real) bananas 
  • Plastic Bag – you could just use a regular plastic sandwich baggie(non-resealable). I had some bags leftover from a previous project from Michaels. You can buy these with a printable/mobile coupon from Michaels
  • Cardstock – to print your printable on & make it sturdier
  • Ribbon – to tie it all up

Directions::

  • Print off the “I’m Bananas for You” printable on card stock
  • Cut out your Valentine printables & use a small hole punch to put a hole in one of the top corners (I also put a layer of black cardstock in the back just to make it stand out more)
  • Tie it all together with ribbon

Once again, another easy Valentine card to make with your kids, with a unique twist on the typical  Valentine’s candy.

Valentine Card Ideas – “I’m Stuck on You” Free Valentine’s Day Printable

Valentine Card Ideas 

Valentine Card Ideas – “I’m Stuck On You” Free Printable

Our next FREE Valentine’s Day printable is one that you may already have the items all on hand if you’re in need of a last-minute Valentine’s card idea. It’s super easy & frugal, too!  The card is “I’m Stuck on You” and you can really use any sucker / lollipop to attach to the Valentine’s card. It’s up to you whether you want to add a ribbon or not, too.

I headed to Winco to check out their selection of Valentine candy and they had such a great variety of Valentine candies. They had two different bulk bins of heart lollipops – red & pink heart pops for $1.58/lb  & strawberry cream heart pops for $1.88/lb. This is definitely a great way to get the exact number you need for your Valentine’s.

Another option is to use the Yummy Earth Organic lollipops so you know exactly what your kids are eating & giving them a “healthier” version of candy (I’m sure other parents would appreciate this too). I’ve bought these thru Amazon when they’re on sale & they seem to last forever – and my girls really like them, too!

Free “I’m Stuck On You” printable:

Items Needed:

Valentine Lollipops at Winco

  • Lollipops / Suckers –  You can just use regular lollipops, organic lollipops or use Valentine heart-shaped lollipops. Once again, Winco had a great selection of heart-shaped lollipops as I mentioned above. I also saw bags of heart-shaped lollipops at the Dollar store.
  • Cardstock
  • Ribbon – I just use ribbon I have on hand but you really don’t need it – it’s just an extra touch if you want to add a little more to it

Directions::

  • Print off the “I am STUCK on You” printable on card stock
  • Cut out your Valentine printables & use a small hole punch to put a hole in one of the top corners
  • Attach the sucker thru the hole & then tape on the back. Or you can just tape it right on the front – just make sure to leave enough room on  the side when you are cutting out your cards so you don’t cover the words when taping it.

This is a great, last-minute Valentine’s Card for class parties or to share with friends at a playdate.

These can also be adapted to use with adults, too, if you want to pass out to friends, neighbors or co-workers. Or maybe as a Valentine teacher gift.

Our first FREE Valentine’s Printable is for this cute “You’re a Winner” printable.  I created a Valentine using chocolate gold coins for this Valentine for kids, but you could also pair this up with a lottery ticket for an adult Valentine. I like that there are 2 colors, in case you have boys in your family or in class, who wouldn’t be too interested in the pink printable cards.
