Do you have anything fun planned for Valentine’s Day? I know everyone has their own traditions, but one of the most popular traditions on Valentine’s Day is to trade cute cards. In school it is almost required these days for classmates to bring something for trade! I personally don’t mind because the way I look at it, if it’s something positive and makes my kids happy and engaged with others in a good way, I’m all in! The way I do Valentine’s Day Cards for my kids classes every year is different. Since I am frugal, it’s always based on what I can get in bulk at a good price. Also, since I like to be on the creative side, I don’t just get the Valentine’s Day Kits from the stores. Last year the fun party themed Crayola crayons went on sale for next to nothing at Target so I loaded up on those for my kids. This year, I raided Michael’s after Christmas clearance bin deals and scored activity sets for a dime each!
I made these cute American Girl themed Valentine’s Cards for those who wanted something doll related. In the stores we see Disney characters and such but we never see American Girl! Well, not to worry because these cards can be printed and customized with your child’s name. I even thought about sticking a sucker through or taping smarties on the back. What do you think?

Also, don’t forget about the cute doll size Valentine’s Day Cards we made. These are a fun craft that kids can do easily without much help. Believe me, in my house we do A LOT of crafting. So, I try to do as many as I can that require no help from me so they get to actually enjoy the craft and feel like they did it all by themselves. You can always modify the craft too. So, instead of using mod podge, use clear tape instead! That way the cards feel laminated and last for years to come!
