Easy Valentine’s Printable for Preschoolers

Valentine Printable for PreschoolersGuess who totally misread the Valentine’s Day newsletter from preschool? My understanding: a homework assignment for class valentines would be sent home no later than Wednesday. The actual meaning: our homework assignment WAS to create class valentines, to be brought in no later than Wednesday.


So. Now that I’m already a day late and a dollar short, what’s a busy working/blogging mommy to do?

Recycle the valentine I created last year.

Best of all? There’s no crossover. None of her school friends saw the Valentine’s from last year. SCORE. I could do it. I could pull off a blatant self plagiarism and no one would be the wiser.

The funniest thing about this whole thing? I casually uploaded an Instagram photo of last year’s Valentine to Pinterest, and to date, it remains one of my most popular pins. It’s a TERRIBLE picture — it totally cracks me up that it’s been repinned so much. But obviously, it’s a good idea. So here you go. All yours to use, should you find yourself in the same boat as me.

Repeat this back: “Even though I forgot the class valentines until the night before Valentine’s Day, I’m still an AWESOME mom/dad.” Just so we’re all on the same page. :) XOXOXO

Step 1

 Open GalleryI created a Valentine’s Day Printable Template last year for the Minnow to give out to a few of her friends. I’d wanted to give out something fun, a little sweet, but still healthy and appropriate for the 2-3 year old set. When I caught sight of Kashi’s Heart to Heart cereal one day in the organic section of our cereal aisle, I knew it was a sure winner. Healthy as Cheerios, but with heart-shaped pieces included.

Step 2

 Open GalleryClick on the downloadable template in the Project Resources box on the left to download the printable template. I print mine on white cardstock. Once they’re printed, cut around the edges.

Step 3

 Open GalleryOnce the valentines are cut, fold them along the dotted line in the middle.

Step 4

 Open GalleryAdd about a 1/3 of a cup of cereal to a snack-sized baggie. Slide the folded valentine over the top of the snack bag and staple the two sides together, plastic bag in the middle like a sandwich.
