Calling all parents with bored children! Keep ’em busy by having them make their own Valentines this year. These free printable Valentine’s Day cards for kids are easy to put together and are 100% free. They’re a fun and affordable alternative to buying boxed valentines for your child’s class, plus they’re a way to keep your kids entertained (for at least a few minutes, anyway). The ideas below you can print right at home and pair with Valentine’s Day candy or even non-food Valentine’s Day goodies.

For any supplies beyond the free printables for these Valentine’s Day cards, the dollar store will likely have the best deals. If you’re looking to shop from home, you can find supplies on Amazon. I’ve provided helpful links to shop below. Keep scrolling for free printable Valentine’s Day cards for kids to keep them entertained and help you prep for Valentine’s Day parties without a panic trip to the store for cards.

How to Save on Your Valentine’s Day Cards for Kids

There’s no reason to pay full price for any of the crafts I suggest here. Let me offer three quick ways to save money when shopping for supplies.

Shop Dollar Tree and use coupons.

You can use Dollar Tree coupons! Just ensure they’re manufacturer coupons and that the quantities listed on the coupon line up with the quantities Dollar Tree offers. Sometimes dollar store sizes are smaller and fall outside the eligible range for a coupon. See all Dollar Tree deals.

Don’t shop at craft stores like Joann or Michaels without a coupon.

You can almost always find a 20% off coupon to use at these stores. Michaels won’t take a Joann coupon, but Joann will accept a Michaels coupon. See all Joann deals and Michaels deals.

Use your Target RedCard.

If you can’t find a deal on something you need, shop Target with your RedCard to get at least 5% savings. RedCard connects to your checking account, so it’s the same as using cash/debit. See all Target deals.

How colorful are these Valentine’s Day crafts for kids?! A gumball printable along with a bag of small gumballs is a perfect treat.

For extra security, you can cut and tape the corners of the small gumball bags to the valentine so that they don’t move around too much.
