While kids love to get Valentine cards that have a candy treat attached to them, non-candy Valentine’s Day cards are fun to get too. This set of printable Valentine cards comes with card with a friendly not mushy message. There is also a small set of tangram shapes that can be attached to the printable Valentine cards.
There are probably many ways that you can share these printable Valentine cards. I chose to punch a whole in the corner of the card and the tangrams. Then tie them together with a piece of yarn. Knowing that I was going to do that I left a border on one of the edges of the tangrams. The tangram sets will tuck behind the printable Valentine cards when JDaniel passes them out at school. I have twisted the tangram set up so you can see what it looks like attached to the card.
Another way you could share the tangram set and the card would be to put them in a clear plastic treat bag. Both the printable Valentine cards and the tangram set could be cut to their borders or edges. Then they would be placed in the bag.
I printed out the tangram set onto red copy paper. The Valentine cards were printed out onto white card stock. I thought they looked more festive that way. You could print them both out on white card stock if you like.
Why didn’t I put a place to the child receiving each cards name?
I have found that it is easier to pass out printable Valentine cards or the store bought cards when they don’t have who they are going to on them. The child bringing in the cards to school just has to place one card in each student’s card container. It can take awhile for children to go back and forth around the room passing out cards with specific names on them. Kids seem to be more excited about getting a card from everyone in their class rather than having every card have their name on it anyway
Here are some other printable Valentine cards found here on JDaniel4’s Mom:
This set also includes a large set of tangrams and a heart pattern work space! I will share more about how to explore those printables later.
