Candy Free Valentine Card Ideas We Love

  • Design Mom has a great idea for turning a book of MadLibs into a bunch of MadLib Valentines. Super cute and super easy.
  • What would Valentine’s be without a neighborhood scavenger hunt? These ones are specially made for the friends closest to home.
  • Is the mustache craze over? Sometimes I miss the boat on trends. Just in case you think this Mustache Valentine from Craft Monkey is as cute as I think it is, I’ll throw it in.
  • Glow Stick Valentines are inexpensive and really easy to put together. Delia Creates even includes an adorable printable!
  • Love dinosaurs? How about baking soda + vinegar? Oh yeah… then you will LOVE these Erupting Valentines from Fun at Home with Kids.
  • Little M is a secret agent. Seriously you should see her eyes light up when someone mentions spies. These Secret Message Valentine cards from Small + Friendly have her name written all over them!
  • Scratch Art Bookmarks from Teach Mama are perfect for a class full of readers.
  • Use your kid’s artwork to make these DIY “You Color My Heart” Valentines Cards.
  • What’s easier than car painting? Coffee Cups and Crayons has the right idea using a fun and easy art method to create these ‘Wheel-y’ great friend homemade Valentines. There was a time when Big M always had a car in his hand… that was before Legos of course!
  • Ha ha ha! This whoopee cushion valentine from Super Mom Moments is way too cute for words (and includes a free printable). I think this one might be my favorite. Does that surprise you? 😉
