These fun robot Valentine cards are a free printable that look cute enough by themselves, but dollar store pencils and erasers make them irresistible to kids.
Happy early Valentine’s Day, my Kenarry friends! It’s Robin from A Home To Grow Old In, and I’m back today to share these cute printable robot Valentine cards that your kiddos will love.
Each year, I love to get my creative juices flowing and design Valentine’s Day cards for my two boys to give out at school. One of my favorite places to get my inspiration is the dollar store, and this year I found these adorable robot pencils and erasers. My boys love collecting pencils, so I knew they would love to give them out to friends with just the right card. Once I found my inspiration it was easy to put this design together.
Here’s what you’ll need to make the robot Valentine cards:

2. Print and cut the Robot Valentine Cards.
Once you have the file, print the Robot Valentine cards on white cardstock. Next, cut the cards out along the edge of the outer square with either scissors or a paper cutter.
If you’re in the market for a new paper cutter I cannot recommend this one enough. It has a wire that runs across the cutting area to show you exactly where the blade will cut giving you perfect lines each time. My cards were cut out beautifully in just a few minutes.
3. Attach the pencils and erasers to the Valentines.
Once I had all the cards cut out, I used a piece of washi tape to secure the pencils and erasers to each card. Your local craft store should have a great selection of washi tape, but I often find it in the dollar section of Target, or you can find a jackpot of washi tape online.
The cards could still work even without the pencil, but I think it adds a really fun touch.
Woohoo! I’ve got one of my kids’ Valentine’s Day cards finished and ready to go. No last minute scramble this year since these robot Valentine cards are done. Want to know what I’m doing for my other kiddo’s cards? My oldest son thought Carrie’s Knock Knock Valentines were hilarious, so we are off to the dollar store again, but this time for crazy glasses. Don’t you just love printable cards? So much more adorable and creative than what you can buy in the store!
