Wait what…?

Do parents give kids valentines gifts?

This is a personal choice and can vary from family to family. Some parents may opt for small tokens of affection such as candy or toys, while others might give bigger gifts such as a special outing or a piece of jewelry.

In the end, the gesture of giving a Valentine’s Day gift to a child is a way to show love and appreciation, and the gift itself is less important than the sentiment behind it.

I am not a fan of consumerism (as you know) so anything that cost nothing is a winner. So please welcome Jamie back with an adorable and creative FREE printable Valentines Day Card for you Kids.

I filled each little bag with 2 gummi worms.

My bags were little. In retrospect, I think I would have spent the extra 50 cents and got the bigger bag size! Oh well!

Then, cut out each tag and staple the tag to the plastic bag full of worms. Voila. Easy peasy.

What should I write in my kids valentines day card?

This is going to be very personal and depends on the type of relationship you have with your kids. The type of ‘words’ or expressions you usually use, etc. The message you include can be as simple or as elaborate as you like.

Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  1. Express your love: Start by telling your child how much you love them and how special they are to you.
  2. Share a memory: Recall a happy memory you share with your child and how grateful you are to have them in your life.
  3. Offer encouragement: Use the card as an opportunity to offer words of encouragement and support to your child. Let them know that you believe in them and are proud of their accomplishments.
  4. Be playful: If your child has a sense of humor, include a joke or a fun rhyme to bring a smile to their face.
  5. Be sincere: No matter what you choose to write, make sure your message is sincere and heartfelt. Children can often sense when a message is genuine, and they’ll appreciate the love and thought you put into their Valentine’s Day card.

  1. I made these to put in our library’s staff mailboxes on V-Day. When I printed them, I made a second side to fold over the bag when I stapled it, and on the second side I added “Library Bookworms” with our library’s logo. Thanks for the great idea – I think they’ll really love it!
