Valentine’s Day Cards From Kids

In a sea of store-bought valentines, one-of-a-kind Photo Cards from kids really stand out. Make sure your child's Valentine's Day cards come in at the head of the class with one of these fun, easy projects:

Love Is in the Air


  • Camera
  • Scissors
  • Scotch tape
  • Construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Pen
  1. Cut out two dozen construction paper hearts. You can stick to one color or mix two different hues for added fun. Make the hearts about the size of your palm.
  2. Have your child stand against a blank, light-colored wall. Mark the spot where your child's head hits the wall.
  3. Tape the hearts on the wall in an inverted triangle, making the point be at the spot you marked on the wall.
  4. Take photos of your children posing beside the hearts, pretending to blow them out of their hands.
  5. Order 4x6 Prints of the best image from your photo shoot.
  6. Write "I love you from the bottom of my heart" on the back or have your child write the greeting.

Sweeten Things Up


  • Camera
  • Safety pin
  • 1 lollipop for each card
  1. Take a photo of your children with their fists extended toward you.
  2. Purchase Prints of the image or customize one of our Valentine’s Day Cards with the picture. Buy a few extras just in case!
  3. Once you have received the prints or cards, poke two holes into each one with the safety pin. Place the holes on either side of your child's fist.
  4. Slide a lollipop stick through the holes. It will look as if your child is holding it!

You can make this design extra fun by creating a Valentine's Day background on the wall behind your child, or add a message to the picture with your favorite digital photo editor.

Bubbles of Fun


  • Camera
  • Drinking glass
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Safety pin
  • 1 pink balloon for each card
  • Scotch tape
  • 1 plastic bag for each card
  • Bubblegum balls to fill each bag
  1. Snap a head shot of your child or select a favorite photo that you already have on file.
  2. Order 5x7 Prints or a Valentine’s Day Card of the image. Purchase a few extras in case of errors.
  3. Place a drinking glass on the photograph, centered over your child's face. Use a pen to trace a circle around the image.
  4. Blow up all the balloons, so that they are inflated but still smaller than your child's head.
  5. Use the pin to poke a hole in the middle of your child's mouth. Push the balloon through, so that it looks like a gum bubble. Tape the knot of the balloon to the back of the card to keep it in place.
  6. Fill the plastic baggies up with gum. Tie the bags closed. Tape the baggies to the backs of the cards!
