Crafts and Games, Family, Holidays

Commence the barrage of class parties celebrating the sweetest day of the year. We rounded up eight fun DIY—and sugar-free—Valentines from top bloggers that will up the fun factor and lower the post-party sugar crash.

You Rule


The perfect blend of festive and useful, these rulers have been given an upgrade by Isadora at Re:Located Living. Check out her link to the free printable sleeve to make this Valentine come together in a snap.



The moms at Supermom Moments are ramping up the funny factor this Valentine’s Day. Ditch the usual frills and fuss in favor of a kitschy whoopee cushion. Boys will be all over this one!

Washi Tape


Valentine’s Day isn’t immune from the Washi tape craze, and KimmelKids has a few tricks for incorporating the craft sensation. Trace the handy printouts with bold hues and crazy patterns for a one of a kind valentine that’s perfect for the older kids.

Magnify Your Love


Visit your local party store and snatch up mini magnifying glasses on the cheap to create this original Valentine. And the magnifying glass will come in handy this spring for inspecting flowers and bugs. Danyelle at Dandee Designs has an alternate Valentine idea using fun glasses, too.

Mad 4 You


Adjective! Proper noun! Adverb! MadLibs are a hit with boys and girls alike. Gabrielle Blaire at Design Mom uses scrapbook paper as a punchy way to present these individual sheets as valentines.

You’re the Highlight


Classroom supplies win again with this Valentine idea from Jamie over at C.R.A.F.T.  Big box stores will have larger packs of highlighters, which will help for larger class sizes. Attach the printable with baker’s twine or bright ribbon.

Melt My Heart

7-Heart Crayons

Angie at Cooking With My Kid repurposed all those stray crayon pieces lying around the house. Heart shaped crayons look cute in small cellophane bags with ribbon or attached to a Valentine.

All the Fish in the Sea


If it’s too hard to break away from snacks on Valentine’s Day, consider opting for a salty variation instead. Bliss Bloom Blog has an easy way to incorporate your favorite fish-shaped cheese cracker with a well-placed pun.
