Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday of all! I know for some it’s depressing without a significant other but I think that Valentine’s is about way more than romance. It’s a day filled with giving compliments and kind words to others. A day to show someone you care. AND a day full of fun, great décor, and sweets.
There is very little I don’t love about this holiday. We can all use a little more love and kindness in our worlds and giving Valentine Cards is a great way to spread goodness. But as a health conscious Momma I don’t like to add to the sugar rush. Because of this I like making homemade Valentine’s with my kids and choosing non-sugar gifts to go with the card.
Temporary Tattoo Valentine Cards
This year we chose to use temporary tattoos as the prize for our Valentine cards. My kiddos are obsessed with fun temporary tattoos and it cuts down on the marker and pen drawings on our skin. We went to Oriental Trading to get a huge selection of options at really decent prices. I like being able to pick images that will compliment our card designs.
You can get all kinds of different images but we chose some cute owls, pirates, and gold pineapples. These all came super adhesive and were awesome vibrant colors. Of course they had to be tested by the kiddos and they went on easily and I was able to remove them easily as well.
To make our cards we utilized the “Oh Happy Day Card Kit” from Stampin’ Up. I like using a kit because all the paper, embellishments, and extras work together so I can just let my kids create to their hearts content and they turn out beautifully and matching! Plus, it’s so much easier to have everything all together and we can get our craft on without a fuss. This is the way to make super darling cards that look like you worked for days. Really it’s simple and a great way to make awesome Temporary Tattoo Valentine Cards with your kids.
