This year, you don’t even have to run to the store to buy craft supplies and paper. You don’t have to stand in store aisles picking out a big box of Valentine’s Day cards for your child’s classmates. Just head to our printable cards or photo cards section. You’ll probably be amazed at the variety and number of colorful free printable Valentine cards we offer. But, wait! That’s not the best part.
Did you know that you could turn this into an easy and fun Valentine’s Day project for your kids to do?
What better way to spend a wet or freezing afternoon or an unexpected school closing than by helping your kids make their own, free Valentine’s Day cards at home?
Older kids can browse and select their cards themselves, They could even upload a picture you approve of to a photo card, print it out and add their own personal touch or note. With younger kids, you can encourage them to select a card or picture they like, or select one and print it out for them and get them to color in or doodle on the blank side to personalize it.

* You save what you would have otherwise spent on expensive store bought greeting cards

* Friends, teachers and relatives who receive the cards appreciate them more as your child took the time to personalize each card

* You get to spend time with your children and engage in a family Valentine’s Day bonding activity! Just what it’s all about.
