These 10 cute DIY Valentine’s Day cards with treats for kids are sure to bring smiles!
My boys are currently 16 and 14 and sadly class Valentines are officially a thing of the past! I started this blog back in 2008, and over the years created many cute and original Valentine’s Day treats with free printable cards. I thought it would be fun to round-up some of my favorites for you! I know that Valentine’s Day will look very different this year for elementary children everywhere. I also realize that in-person exchange of treats and cards will most likely not take place. Go ahead and save these ideas to Pinterest and create them this year just for your family members! They are all cute enough to be saved for later! Click on the blue/gray title links to be taken to the original tutorial, recipe, and printable.
I seem to have a thing for hot chocolate and marshmallows during the winter. It must have been inspired by all of those cold years of surviving the harsh winters of Pennsylvania! My Marshmallow Nail Polish Valentine is easier to make than you might think and is always a HUGE hit with little (and big) girls! The free printable is included in the post for you! So cute!
This post contains a fantastic sugar cookie recipe for cut out cookies that hold their shape! Be sure to chill the dough longer than recommended for best results. Cold dough is less sticky and easier to work with. The cute printable comes in a few colors and patterns for you!
Apparently I never blogged these cute Starburst Lips Valentine cards. This idea comes from my bestie Kathleen at Grosgrain. You can click over for her tutorial on how to make these easy Starburst lips! I made my own printable that was more acceptable for my kids’ private school, but Kathleen has a cute one on her blog for you!
These were a big hit with the kids and so easy to make! If you have older elementary aged children, they can help you make these adorable polar bear marshmallows.
Rice Krispies Treats in the shape of a kiss are such a fun treat! All you need to make these Valentines is your favorite rice krispie treat recipe and a small to medium sized funnel. I share the recipe that works best for these here along with all of the directions and the kiss printable. Click to see how easy it is to create these fun themed Valentines!
An ice cream cone that won’t melt and won’t make you cold! The top of the cones are created with a meringue cookie. Fill the cone with cake, candy, or marshmallows and top it with a meringue. I made these treats for my oldest when he was in preschool and they were a big hit!
Create button cookies or even a button cookie bouquet for your little Valentine!
These cookies are easy to make, hold their shape, and can be sewn on a card with candy string!
Perhaps this is a “vintage” idea at this point, but it’s too adorable not to share! Take a picture of your Valentine pretending to hold an object and then print out the picture. Place a sucker, lightsaber (glow stick), pencil, pen, etc. as the treat in the hand. This is an easy DIY Valentine that is personal, thoughtful, and in my opinion classic!
My favorite chocolate chip scone recipe of all time is in this post! The scones turn out delicious every time no matter what shape they are in.
Even if you don’t consider yourself crafty, you can make these ladybug cupcakes! Pair one with a cute Ladybug card or just make the treats for your special lovebugs!
Pin for later!
