Easy Valentine's Day Cards

Now that you've created the perfect Valentine's Day card holder we need to start thinking about the "Be Mine" cards for our family and friends! In our home we try to make homemade cards for family and the closest of friends.  Kiddos love stickers, so for the preschoolers it's so easy to simply use a piece of construction paper and stickers and then have them print their name on the their masterpiece.

The little ones in our family love making a mess with paint! Finger painting a heart shaped cutout is definitely a fun activity and will make the sweetest personal Valentine's Day card for mommy, daddy, grandma or grandpa. Creative Connections for Kids has some great suggestions for Valentine's art for toddlers.

The adorably cute robot Valentine's Day cards from Lisa Storms are fun to make and are perfect for boys and girls to give their friends on Valentine's Day. They are made using a miniature candy bar for the robot's body.

These are just a few ideas for homemade Valentine's Day cards. So, if you're running out of time you can always pick up a package of totally awesome cards at your local Target, Walmart, or Dollar General store. Here's a store bought Valentine I received from my Daddy many moons ago...

Popular themes for this year's Valentine's cards of course include Elsa, Anna, and Olaf from Disney's Frozen. Party City offers a package of 28 Frozen Valentine cards for $3.99. Also included are 28 lollipops to slide into a pre-cut slot.

And each and every year the superheroes are popular Valentine's cards for the boys. Target has a 16 pack of Spiderman cards that actually punch out and become wearable masks. They also have Valentine's cards featuring a personal favorite, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! This pack of 16 cards also includes a mini poster. How fun is that!
