When I hear the words “LEGO Valentines,” visions of money shooting from my hands assault me. While I absolutely love these imaginative toys, it goes without saying that they aren’t cheap and the thought of passing them out like candy makes me cringe. But as it turns out, you can still hand out Valentines cards in your favorite LEGO theme without spending a ton of cash. We’ve found some of the cheapest and most creative options to express your kids ever-dying love of all things LEGO. Keep reading for 7 easy DIY LEGO Valentines.
1. We Were Built To Be Friends
Would you believe these LEGO blocks are actually candy? Fitting in with all things sweet for Valentine’s Day, these DIY LEGO Valentines are perfect for littles, and much cheaper than handing out packs of the actual toy. While they may not challenge your imagination as much as the real deal, the candy coupled with the adorable printable really show the love.

2. You Are Awesome
If you’ve never had the song “Everything is Awesome” from the LEGO movie stuck in your head, have you ever really lived? Music choices aside, this simple LEGO Valentine is perfect for lovers of the movie, or for those who prefer a “non-girly” Valentine to pass out to their friends. While it does involve using actual LEGO bricks, you can just use some of the ones you’ve been stepping on all over the house or from sets that are no longer used. Just sayin’.
