Valentine’s Day is almost here, and my kids and I have begun creating some special Valentine treats and cards for our friends and family. Valentine’s Day is a great way to teach your kids about kindness and friendship. We love to make these special items for others and we have a great time handing them out, too!
I have some really fun, easy, and budget friendly was to spread the love this Valentine’s Day! Oriental Trading has a fabulous selection of Valentine’s candy, toys, cards, and more! Check out these adorable Valentines, and be sure to download the free printables below!
You Brighten My Day! This is as easy as it gets. You can order heart shaped, colorful, glasses from Oriental Trading and they are a hit! I love the heart shaped ones, but you can also do plain, solid color glasses too. Download this printable, punch two holes for the glasses to go through and you are set!
Donut Forget, You are Awesome! Who doesn’t love Donuts? I know me and my kids sure do! I knew these plush Donuts from Oriental Trading would make such a great valentine!

If you want to go the extra mile this tag would be perfect to tie on to actual donuts, or even donut holes for the teachers!
You Blow Me Away! My youngest is so excited to pass out bubbles to all of her friends! You can buy almost any color of bubbles from Oriental Trading, and I this is the perfect printable tag to go along with it. Print it off, and tie it with a ribbon or string around your bubbles.
Valen-Slime! Yes, you read that right! Valentine’s Day is also a good excuse to get your kids hands on, and make a few batches of slime! This is very easy to make in bulk, find the best Slime recipe here. Then be sure to download this cute printable to tape against your slime container. You can find good small containers for Valentine Slime at the Dollar Store, or your local craft store, and tape them right to the card.
Wishing You A Colorful Valentine’s Day! All kids love to color! These box of crayons are cute by themselves, but you can upgrade this Valentine by including a Be Mine Coloring Sheet and this adorable printable.
You Make My Heart Pop! I love popcorn, so I hope someone makes me one of these 🙂 My daughter had a blast making hers. It was a lot of fun to decorate the can. Here is the how to-
First, remove labels from cans. Use a can opener to remove the bottom end of the can. It’s the side without the the tap. Plan ahead and start to save the fruit, beans and vegetable cans. Or if you more last minute, buy bulk canned fruit and make smoothies or freeze it! Once the can is clean and empty, fill it with popcorn. Be sure to add tissue paper on top of the popcorn before you seal the lid back on. This way no glue will get on the popcorn. Lastly take the bottom of the can and glue it back one with hot glue. Let set, and you have the most adorable Valentine’s gift! I added some pink cardstock to my can then the tag on top, and finished with a ribbon!
Enjoy making these fun Valentines, and get all the supplies you need right here!
