The Cutest Valentine’s Day Printable Ideas

My sister in law always has the best ideas for fun and creative Valentine’s day handouts. The two that are the most memorable were the gum-ball machine and whoopee cushion Valentines she asked me to create a handout for! As I started to make the hand-outs editable through google drive (so you could get in on the fun,) I couldn’t help but think of a few other fun options to add to the list!

  1. Gum Ball Machine:To my knowledge, Katie searched different designs and ideas before coming up with what you see here.

Begin by flipping the paper cup on it’s mouth. Next cut off the bottom of the cup. Depending on the size of ornament you purchased will be where you cut. The smaller the ornament the less off the cup you will want to take.

Next fill your ornament with gum-balls, then close and secure. The top of the ornament with the place for a hook will be placed into the cup. Use a few spots of hot glue to secure the bulb to the paper cup. Use a marker to personalize the Valentine, then add the “I Chews You” printable/ editable tag to the base. Does it get any cuter or simpler than that?!?!?

2. Whoopee Cushion Valentines: Maybe its the 5th grader in me… BUT I LOVE this next one. Imagine the shock and joy on the receivers face when handed one of these!

Supplies

Simply open and edit the “Whoopee it’s Valentines Day” Tag in Google Slides. You are able to edit by adding the name of who the gift is from.

Print and cut out. Next, place the whoopee cushion on the tag. Punch two holes around the “neck” of the whoopee cushion. Thread the twine from behind the tag and around the neck to fasten it to the tag. Use tape to secure the balloon part of the cushion to the tag. As cute as it gets!

 

3. Friendship Bracelet Valentine: I LOVE how this one turned out. There is something inside of me that always tries to diverge from the beaten path when it comes to Holiday Hand-outs. For the life of me I can’t just give trick-or-treaters candy. (See what I gave them last year here!) So it only seems appropriate that I follow the same beat to a different drum when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Heaven forbid I buy a store bought Valentine Kit…. WHICH I LOVED AS A KID… Instead of candy… what do you think about friendship bracelets! Did I mention you can get a whole slew of them for pennies on the dime…. I. Know.

Supplies:

 

 

                         

After downloading the tags, simply edit and print. Next, use the circle guides on the page to punch a hole on both sides of the wrist, weave the bracelet through and connect it to itself…. THAT’S IT!

4. Wild About You: If you know anything about my son, you know I couldn’t not do some sort of Valentine without some sort of critter on it. Thus the need for the Wild About You Tag. The beauty of this tag is that anything that falls under the category wild… will work great. A favorite critter, and a little washi tape and you’re sure to have a crowd pleaser.

When it comes to the critter, I highly recommend the Safari LTD Toobs. If you are a teacher, or military, or first responder… I recommend Safari LTD even more!! The toobs are great because Safari LTD literally offers every type of animal or creature imaginable, dinosaurs, North American Animals **Benson’s Favorites, African Animals, sea creatures…etc. Great size for this Valentine and great price. Again this valentine is sure to be a hit!

Supplies:

To complete simply download, edit, and print the free Wild About You Tag. Secure the animal using a strip of washi tape. If you haven’t used washi tape before… be prepared for everything you think you know about tape to be changed. It is so user friendly, can stick to itself but easily separates, tears easily, yet still durable. Won’t tear or ruin the paper or item it is stuck to. Is beautiful and fun to work with!

 

 

5. Blooming Valentines: Typically if you wanted to give everyone on your Valentines list flowers you would be looking at spending some mega, mooga, dough… not today. These beautiful blooming valentine are so fun and so sweet. Perfect to give to students, young women, friends, or loved ones. When it comes to this type of Valentine you have two options you can either use seeds, or SEED PAPER… Let’s start with the seed paper, seeing how it’s one of the details I am most excited about!


Seed paper is literally a biodegradable paper that has seeds embedded in it. This means you plant and water and care for this dainty and sweet pieces of heart shaped paper, and in their place will sprout wildflowers or whatever seed you desire if you go the DIY route.  Most instructions I have read advises you to soak the seed paper overnight, then plant by covering with a small layer or soil and caring for like you would any other plant. If you go the pre-made seed paper route, you can pick from a confetti option, or an individual large shape. If you pick the confetti, simply divide the portion into a snack size ziplock bag and add the editable tag. If you choose the large shape, just attach the actual shape to the tag itself. Glue dots, Elmer’s glue, or a glue stick will work great. If you want to get real granola… use egg yolks.

Confetti Options: Click on picture for details

Individual Seed Paper Shape Options: click on picture for details

The other option is to give a single packet of seeds, or save money by buying seeds in bulk and separating them using ziplock snack bags. The labels I designed are 6.5 inches and will fit on top of a ziplock bag perfectly.

          

You also have two options when printing the labels, one is to save paper by only having one side. The other is two sided. Simply use a stapler to attach ziplock baggie, or glue if using a single large shape of seed paper. See video for clarifications.

6. Bubble Gum Machine Alternative: The last example is simply a variation you can use on the “I Chews You” tag. If you find yourself short on time, or supplies, a simple trip to the supermarket or gas station for some packets of gum, or even pieces of gum, or rather anything “chewy” and you are good to go. For this example I used the same tag that’s to be used with the bubble gum machine except this time just threw on a packet of gum. I’m doubtful anyone wouldn’t be just as thrilled with the bubblicious as they would be with the machine!

Supplies:

  • Bubblegum (stick, pack, piece…etc.) or anything chewy
  • Adhesive, (glue dots, double stick tape, hot glue…etc.)

 

 

7. Sparkle Unicorn / Gnarly Narwhal Valentine: I love seeing printables that take on and implement actual items into their designs. This is exactly what I set out to do with the unicorn and narwhal designs. Alone these Valentines are a-lot of fun… but add a gel pen for a non-candy alternative, or a lollipop and they become dreamy! To make this happen all you need to do is once printed, cut along the dotted line at the base of the horn. This will create the “insert hole” in the middle of the paper. Add a gel pen, sucker, pencil, twisty straw…etc. These Valentines are sure to please!

 

 

 

   

 

Supplies:


    

8. I Think You’re A-MAZE-ING Valentines: This one turned out SO FUN. My sister in law and I were trying to think of a fun, more interactive Valentine you could use when giving a pen or a pencil…. She suggested a maze, and I could not be more thrilled with how simple and cute these turned out. I love the look of paint chips and thought this look added a fun pop of color. This is a great option for teachers to give to students especially if they are losing the pencil/eraser game. Talk about practical. Just don’t tell the students you would have given them a new pencil regardless 😀

You can completely change this Valentine based on who you give it to. If your giving it to a good friends or colleagues I’ll suggest a bright flair pen until the cows come home. If its for a student to student Valentine exchange, you’d be surprised how excited they will be about a new gel-pen or pencil they can use in the classroom.

Supplies:

 

 


 

 9. Coloring Page Valentine: Another idea for a more interactive Valentine was this coloring page handout. This one ended up being the perfect size to be used as a bookmark after well. I love how this one turned out. Add some sort of colorful pen, pencil, crayons, even watercolors and you are in business! 

Supplies:

 

 

Please, please, please tag me if you end up using one of these. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see my labor of love in your hands! Happy Valentine’s Day dear friends!

Enos records, “I kneeled down before my Maker, and I cried unto him in mighty prayer and supplication for mine own soul; and all the day long did I cry unto him; yea, and when the night came I did still raise my voice high that it reached the heavens.” It wasn’t easy. Faith did not come quickly. In fact, Enos characterized his experience in prayer as a “wrestle which [he] had before God.”But faith did come. By the power of the Holy Ghost, he did receive a witness for himself. -Elder Robert D. Hales

This week we’re doing it a little differently... In light of Jacob 5, the LONGEST chapter in the Book of Mormon and the chapter that always caused the wheels to fall off my reading wagon, I wanted to create a tool that would better help (me) you and your family better understand the WHAT and the WHY of the Allegory of the Olive Tree. Instead of an object lesson I’ve provided my favorite resources for teaching the allegory to toddlers/ youth, and individual study. This FREE download is included. .

“These surely are the latter days, and the Lord is hastening His work to gather Israel. That gathering is the most important thing taking place on earth today. Nothing else compares in magnitude, nothing else compares in importance, nothing else compares in majesty. And if you choose to, if you want to, you can be a big part of it. You can be a big part of something big, something grand, something majestic!” -President Russel M. Nelson

If you’re like me, when you realized we had finally made it to Jacob 5, your breath may have been shortened as you realized you were about to embark on the Olive Tree Allegory with your family. This is a section of scripture, where admittedly I try to get in and get out and with that plan of attack I am left getting little to nothing out of it. I wanted this to be different. Instead of planning an object lesson this week, instead, I wanted to dive into this allegory and give it the time and attention I’m told it deserves. So my hope this week is to give you the tools necessary to “GET” these chapters, no matter how old your kiddos are, or what stage of life you are in.

Jacob 4:6

When we are troubled, our first reflex must be to search the scriptures and the words of the living prophets. Their writings are beacons that cannot deceive us: “Wherefore, we search the prophets, and we have many revelations and the spirit of prophecy; and having all these witnesses we obtain a hope, and our faith becometh unshaken” -Bishop Gérald Caussé

Guys.... I’m not usually one to toot my own horn.... but 🎺 🎺. You HAVE to try this in your classroom. I racked my brain to come up with a pie recipe that didn’t require melting butter, a hand mixer, oven, or mess, that still incorporated math and fun. When plastic bags came to mind I couldn’t find anything that supported the idea of whipped cream in a bag but, in theory it should work.... IT. DOES. Every “piece” of that pie #punintended is made in a ziplock bag with ingredients that simply require measuring. Best part, it’s delicious. This is SURE to be a favorite and memorable activity with your class! 💛 be sure to tag me, I can’t wait to hear all about it!.
Link can be found in my story! You should know by now I’ve got FREEBIES for you for Pi Day as well 💛💛💛 .

With it being National Women’s Day Yesterday it seems only appropriate to highlight a woman I love and admire... My mother. Some find it funny or strange that I hope to be just like her, but I truly mean it. She epitomizes what I believe the divinity of femininity is. She is soft and kind, all while being strong and grounded. She is all-giving and self-sacrificing all while knowing her worth. The needs of others especially those she loves will always be put before her own. Oddly enough this could be considered her weakness, which at the end of the day speaks volumes of the type of person she is. What a blessing it is to know her, how grateful I am to call her mom. .

“Craving the Lord’s companionship, the scriptures infuse my spirit with the Spirit. They will do the same for you. They will enlighten you, lift you, comfort you, strengthen you. They will envelop you in a warm blanket of heavenly love. How do I know? Because they do that for me. It is Heavenly Father’s promise to us. It is eating at the Lord’s table.” ...
