Valentine’s Card Creatures | Kids Craft Printable

I’ve been getting requests for a printable Valentine’s Day project. And I thought it would be cool to make a card that was also a toy. So here are some funny little Valentine’s card creatures. There is a small flap on the back so you can write a secret Valentine’s note underneath. We’ve been having a fun time with them so far. I still want to try coloring some too. Templates are below if you want to try them out. Just print, cut, fold and tape.

As always, if you’d like to share photos of your creatures (or your other Valentine’s craft creations) on the Made by Joel Facebook page, it would be fun to see them!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Hello! another intelligent, original and fun idea... I have a proposition of toy to propose if you're interested... mail me! It's in the same perspective than your propositions : simple (very simple "en fait"), fast free (recycle materials), quick to do and printable... à bientôt ! (?) (sorry but I'm french and not "bilingue") merci pour votre travail et votre imagination j'utilise vos idées pour mes enfants et ceux que j'accueille (je suis assistante maternelle)

    Thank you so much for providing these great little creatures. It's a rainy day down here in Mississippi, and my little girl had so much fun cutting, folding and gluing these little guys. She's been playing with them nonstop since we finished.

      That's great! Thanks Leslie! Glad the kids are having fun!
