Bubble Gum Valentine Cards for Kids
Hey Valentine, I’m stuck on you! Forget the little trinkets or store-bought Valentine cards, print off these cute cards and add gum! My tweens are young enough to exchange valentine cards but aren’t ready for all that mushy romance. I’ve come up with a fun and frugal card idea that tweens will totally love. Buy a couple packs of bubble gum and some tape, print these bright valentine cards, label, and assemble! Boom!
I’m actually a pretty big fan of unique and crafty valentine cards for younger kids to exchange in their classroom. It’s adorable when the cards are handmade with lots of love, but it’s time for me to hand over the scissors and glue to my tweens. Tweens are old enough to cut, write, and assemble their own valentines. I know it can be hard to hand over the glue sticks and gel pens but it’s time don’t you think?
I know that some teachers don’t hold class parties or valentine card exchanges, so kids are left to pass the holiday without a celebration. Consider handing cards out at sports practice, after school clubs, or give them to classmates before school starts in the morning.
Make Valentine’s Day Special
When my kids wake up on Valentine’s Day I like to surprise them with treats. Many grocery stores sell heart shaped donuts that you can pick up the day before or get plain donuts and add sprinkles! Other ideas are to cut toast in a heart shape, or just make a special pancake breakfast. They may roll their eyes, but deep down they’re loving the extra attention. I mean, what tween doesn’t want attention?
How to Print
I recommend printing these on thick paper like construction or card stock for added sturdiness.
