Valentine's day cards for kids

If you’re looking for some fun and budget-friendly Valentine’s Day cards for school-aged kids, we’ve got your back! Get ready for a cuteness overload because we’ve rounded up a bunch of ideas sure to bring smiles to all those little faces.

“And none for Gretchen Weiner….” This is the first thing that pops into my head when I think of Valentine’s Day cards (IYKYK). Even though that line comes to mind, it is the opposite of what I do for Valentine’s Day for my kids. Even though my twins are only 2 and their class can’t necessarily understand the message, they know there’s something special about Valentine’s Day. I love creating cards and packages for my twins’ class, it’s an opportunity to make someone smile. Regardless of how old your twins are, Valentine’s Day is a chance to create a “WOW” moment!

I Choose You!

School Valentine’s Day cards should be something personable for your child.  Find an interest and match it to make it fun for them to give to their friends. My 6-year-old nephew is all about Pokemon, so this one tugged at my heart. It’s a simple concept and is sure to be a hit! Grab some Pokemon cards (one card or a pack per kid…your money, your decision) and wrap them in individual plastic bags with this cute PokeBall card free printable from You can see that a Pokemon mini figure was included in this Valentine’s as well, but these can be pretty spendy. If you want to include something extra, opt for a Pokemon sticker instead. Stickers are equally as fun and less stressful on the pocketbook!
