Tips for Helping Your Kids Make Valentine’s Day Poem Cards

Creating Valentine’s cards for family can be a wonderful and creative activity for kids. Here are some tips to make the process enjoyable:

1. Offer a variety of supplies

Lay a variety of crafting supplies like Valentine’s Day-themed colored paper, markers, crayons, stickers, glue, scissors, and any other decorative items your child enjoys using. Make sure they add their short valentine poems first so they don’t run out of space!

2. Add family photos

Include family photos in the cards. It could be a recent picture or a cherished memory. This adds a personal and sentimental touch to the Valentine’s greetings along with a lovely poem for the special people in their lives!

3. Use short poems

Help your child express their feelings by choosing a poem from the list above. The length of the poem is important because longer poems will make it difficult for young children to enjoy this activity. These short poems are a good way for your kids to have a great time with sweet and to the point messages to their family members.

4. Create Handprint or Thumbprint Art

Make the cards more personal by incorporating handprint or thumbprint art in the shape of hearts. White hearts, yellow hearts, purple hearts, red hearts, pink hearts, or rainbow hearts! The possibilities are endless! Hearts made with paint and their little thumbs surrounding the perfect kids’ Valentine poems will be a hit with the family and even their best friends.

5. Make Pop-Up Cards

Add a fun element to their thoughtful Valentine’s Day poems and cards by creating pop-up cards. Kids can make hearts or other shapes pop out and write their poems on these pop-out pieces for an extra surprise that they’ll love!

Enjoy the process of making these sweet Valentine poem cards with your little favorite valentine. They’ll think it’s the very best thing and light up with joy when they deliver the perfect Valentine’s Day poem to each of their family members!
