Valentine’s Day presents many opportunities for kids to learn about the joy of giving, whether gifts are simple or extravagant. For example, handing out cool kids Valentine cards to each of his or her classmates helps teach a child about fairness and etiquette, while sending cards to special friends and relatives provides a child with the chance to put a personal spin on the holiday. Here are some ideas for the various types of kids’ Valentine cards.
It is often simpler and easier for kids to give their classmates the same Valentine’s Day card. When time allows, though, tailoring cool kids Valentine cards to classmates can be a lot of fun. You could ask your child to list things he or she knows about each kid in the class, for example, “Jane loves trucks,” and “Bobby plays with dinosaurs.” Doing so allows your child to inject even more meaningfulness into the cards. Tiny Prints offers a diverse selection of cards with images of dinosaurs, cats, astronauts and much more.
Also, it is great handwriting practice for your child to write all of the names himself or herself. Try not to worry if you think your child’s handwriting is not up to par; everything will turn out fine.
Valentine’s Day cards that double as photo cards are a favorite among grandparents and other folks in your child’s life. They serve three purposes: card, gift and keepsake. With personalized postage stamps and address labels, you can add to the fun and sneak in additional images. Remember to keep one card for yourself too; it will make you smile years down the road.
If possible, have the child write a short and sweet personalized message for each card sent to a special friend or relative. It could be something as simple as, “I heart you, Grandma!” or “I dig you, Uncle George!” but will make the relative’s day.
"I stuck these onto plain cardboard tags and tied them around the favors with some pretty bakers string for my 1 year old's birthday party - they came out great!"
"I ordered these for my daughter to give to her friends. They are adorable and the perfect size. I like that they don't have a "to:" line, so she can pass them out without having to fill in specific names first. One will make a cute keepsake for me too."
"This is an adorable and different valentine card for little girls..not your run-of-the-mill card..My daughter Loves it!!"
"These gift tages / labels were a perfect idea for all of our back to school labeling. My son put them on his folders, in his books, on his binder. Good quality and really cute design!"
"We used these for my sons classroom valentines, he Loves dinosaurs and isn't really into Valentines day until he saw all the candy - I stuck them on a bag of heart candies instead of attaching a valentine card and it was so much easier! No tape, no signing his name, and so him! Loved these!"
