4. Dinosaur Valentine

This dinosaur Valentine is perfect for your little boy to give out to his classmates.  It’s easy and not to mention inexpensive.  I doubt other kids will be disappointed to get a dinosaur toy instead of candy.  You can often times find a pack of small dinosaur figurines at the dollar store.  I actually saw some a week ago in the dollar bin at Target.  Just throw one in a ziploc bag, staple on the dinosaur printable, and you’ve got yourself a “rawr-ing” Valentine.

(Simmworks Family Blog has a great printable to attach for this Valentine as well as lots of other ideas on recipes, travel, parenthood, and more).

5. School of Fish

I don’t think I’ve ever met a child that doesn’t like gold fish crackers.  Buy one of those big boxes of gold fish from the grocery store, print and cut out the “So glad we’re in the same school” printable, then put them both in a zip loc bag, you’ve got yourself a super easy DIY Valentine.  Not to mention the fact that with such a big box of these crackers you’ll probably have some left over that you can keep in your own home for your littles to snack on.

6. Pencil Toppers

All kids love new pencils, especially when they have cool designs on them, which would make getting this Valentine so exciting.  These pencils are another item you can most likely find in a pack at the dollar store.  Again, they would be inexpensive and all you would have to add is a cute Valentine card to the top of the pencil with tape.  Not only is the Valentine cute, but useful for the child as well!
