In many ways, Valentine’s Day is a fun kid-friendly holiday!
Kids love to give and receive cards, they like to make things for their friends and family, and kids often get lots of Valentine’s Day candy.
But we know kids can be tough customers when it comes to choosing the perfect cards for their friends or classmates because they often have an exact idea of what they want.
If you have a little one who loves owls, these owl Valentine cards will be exactly what they’re looking for!

Cut out each of the cards with scissors or a paper trimmer.
Have your child use a pen to write their name on the “from” line on each of the cards.
That’s it! It’s so simple and cute!
Sometimes we get questions about how to print files. Of course, it will all depend on your computer and especially, printer, but here are a few guidelines to follow.
First, we always recommend using Adobe Reader. Other generic PDF readers can cause problems, such as having empty spaces or black bars present when printing.
Second, make sure your printer settings are correct. To get the full-size cards, make sure you choose “actual size” or your printer’s similar setting.
Finally, double-check that the “print on both sides” dialog box is unchecked.
These two simple suggestions should help you easily get these printed and ready for your child.
Valentine Ideas For Kids
Now that your kids have their Valentine cards sorted out, why not keep going with the Valentines fun? We’ve got great ideas to get you started.
First up, are books. Reading aloud to children is a great way to help them develop a love of reading themselves. It also helps them build communication skills and focus on what they are reading. Reading aloud also encourages curiosity and imagination, which can help improve attention span and listening skills!
Below are some of our favorite Valentine books for kids.
Love From The Crayons – If your kids love any of the Crayon books, they’ll want to read this Valentine version where the crayons explore the bright colors and subtle shades of love.
The Invisible String – This is a sweet story all children will want to hear. It’s about a mother who tells her two children that they’re all connected by an invisible string.

Another activity we always like kids to do is crafting! Crafting with kids is a great activity for a number of reasons. It helps with fine motor skills, exercises creativity, and is a fun and great way to relieve stress.
Kids can also learn how to use scissors properly, follow directions, boost confidence, and create family memories. Crafting takes patience and focus, which are both important skills to develop.
