I remember having to find Valentine's Day cards as a kid when my mom would take me to the store. I never really enjoyed the messages on most of them and struggled to pick out ones that I wanted to give to my classmates. I rounded up some that I think send a wonderful message or create a little laughter that all kids would feel comfortable giving or receiving. Spreading love in a way that sends a message that we all love each other for who they.
These cards are also fun activities your kids can create with a little guidance from you. What an enjoyable day of creating and having fun together! Whether you are sending them to classmates or family and friends, these handmade cards have that loving touch and personality from the person creating them. Have your child add their own flare, see some of ours below!
