One-of-a-kind Kids Valentine’s Day Card idea
Every year for Valentine’s Day, we design a unique kid’s Valentine’s Day card that C1, our oldest son can give to school friends. More often than not, Valentine’s Day cards we make can be attached to a low-cost treat or trinket. For example, when he was in preschool many years ago, we made cute Fish Valentines that attached to a bag of goldfish crackers. Then for his kindergarten class, we were inspired to make Ruler Valentines after finding inexpensive, colorful rulers at our dollar store.
When he was in first grade, he was really into telling jokes, so we made valentines with a funny car joke and attached Laffy Taffy candy. In second grade, he gave out “A-maze-ing” valentines with a toy labyrinth attached.
As a third-grader, C1 loves to draw and write. He fills notebook upon notebook with comics and sketches as he dreams about being an author/illustrator when he grows up. We even used one of his drawings to decorate his birthday cake, so it’s only natural that he wanted to draw his own Valentine’s day cards too.
We thought your preschool or elementary child might enjoy drawing his or her own cards as well so we’ve made the kids Valentine’s Day card available as a FREE digital download for Kenarry Idea Insiders. Both versions of the card you see in the photos are available — one with C1’s unique drawing and a blank one so your child can draw a sheep too!

Once you have the file, print the kids Valentine’s Day card on white card stock. NOTE: There are two versions of this card. One with C1’s drawing that he’s graciously allowed me to share with you and there’s also a blank version.
2. Cut apart the sheep joke Valentines.
3. have your child draw a sheep and a door.
If you’re using the blank version of the card, have your child draw a sheep knocking on a door on each of the cards using crayons, colored pencils or markers.
TIME-SAVING TIP: BEFORE you cut apart the valentine cards, have your child do the sheep drawing just four times on the original. Then scan the original to your computer (or photocopy) and reprint as many times as you need in order to have enough for your child’s classmates.
Here are a few other creative tips and ideas:
- Use cotton balls and adhesive googly eyes to craft a little 3D sheep on the front of each card.
- If your child can’t draw, make it easy and use stickers instead. These 3D sheep stickers or these dazzling sparkly ones are especially cute.
- Check your local party supply store or dollar store. You may be able to find a fun sheep trinket to attach to the cards like these Wacky Woolies erasers or these lamb bouncy balls.
4. Have your child sign the Valentine cards.
If your child is able to write, have your child put his or her name on each Valentine’s Day card.
Check with your child’s teacher to see if he or she has a preference for whether your child should also address the cards to specific friends in class. Many teachers feel that it’s faster and easier at the Valentine’s Day party if cards aren’t addressed to specific classmates.
5. (OPTIONAL) Attach candy to the cards.
Make a loop with a piece of transparent tape and stick it to the back of the candy. Then carefully, but firmly press the candy to the front of the kids Valentine’s Day card.
6. Finish making the rest of the Kids Valentine’s Day cards.
Repeat these steps until you’ve made as many Valentine’s Day cards as you need for all the kids in your child’s class.
We hope you and your child enjoy this creative and funny free printable Valentine’s Day card!
