That said, I now choose Valentine's Day cards that are simple to put together. Here are 7 of my favorite green Valentine's Day card ideas that you can make in bulk in a short period of time with your child. These are cards that your kiddo's classmates will go gaga over and you can complete them well before February 14th!
#1: Watercolor Valentines
My favorite type of Valentines are simple and sweet, and these understated yet beautiful watercolor Valentines fit the bill perfectly. You could use eco-friendly or recycled material to create these mini masterpieces. I love that there is no template, your kids can create whatever Valentines make them happy!
#2: You Color My World Valentines
We have all made fun crayons from the broken pieces of our child’s collection – it’s just something that crafty mamas do! However, melting the crayons down in a heart shaped tin pumps it up a notch right in time for Valentine’s Day! If you have a large mini heart muffin tin, you can make a lot of these festive crayons in a matter of a few minutes. Give your child the job of breaking the crayons into small pieces, and you are ready to go! Add a cute little “You Color My World” tag and it’s a vibrant valentine!
#3: Paint-chip Bookmark Valentines
Paint-chips are always a fun craft supply – oh the colors! If you check with your local home supply store and ask the paint clerk for outdated paint chips they always have a bin full of them! Choose paint-chips that are in reds and pinks – the colors of Valentine’s Day. Give your child a heart shaped paper punch and some ribbon and the Valentines almost make themselves. These are a simple offering that will most likely get used again and not tossed in the recycling bin.
