My Punny Valentine

If you are ever in need of a laugh, a quick google search for “vintage valentines” brings up more weird and wacky cards than you would think possible. I’d love to know who bought them back in the day! Inspired by these funny throwbacks, I’ve gathered a collection of crafts that are light on the candy and heavy on the humor. Pardon the puns in advance!


Gem of a Friend

Diamond-shaped ring pops will make kids feel just as special as if they were receiving the real thing! Let your kids show their classmates how much they shine with this idea from Bloom Design.


noodle necklace

The Alison Show came up with a wearable valentine that’s as fun to make as it is to give – plus the painting and stringing are a great way to help develop your toddler’s motor skills.


knot valentine

This classic piece of kid jewelry brings some summertime magic into chilly February.  Dandee shares the simple instructions and free printable so that every kid can be part of the club.


fruity valentines

Say Yes’s clever fruit captions will have the whole class feeling peachy. Dollar store fruit never looked so delicious!



“Will zoo be mine?” – it’s tough to ask without getting the giggles! The circus animals, stamped letters, and felt heart give these valentines from The Blue Robin Cottage an irresistibly timeless look.



These “amaze”ing valentines from Frog Prince Paperie will find their way into the hearts of your kids classmates – while giving them an outlet for all their sugar rush energy. You can buy the heart mazes here.



I’m a sucker for all things miniature, especially when they’re functional! These pocket-sized watercolor sets are a fun way to spark creativity. Get the cute printable from Armelle.



This toothy heart from All for the Boys might have sharp chompers, but it’s also perfect for delivering a sweet kiss.


nose valentine

This valentine from Love and Lion is sure snot to disappoint….(sorry I couldn’t help it). Luckily the only thing that will be coming out of this nose is pencil shavings.



Finally, this cute card from Paging Super Mom will help your kids express their feelings, rather than erase them!
