Creative valentine classroom exchange cards

My DIY Valentine’s Day Jokes Cards are fun and friendly without being too romantic, so it’s a great valentines idea for boys and girls to make for their classroom valentines exchange cards. Kids can sign their names on the backs and add a couple small hearts for extra love.

Now what do you call a very small Valentine? A valen-tiny!

Making classroom cards is great Valentine’s Day craft activity for kids

My 6-year-old son, Liam, got a joke book in his Christmas stocking and he’s all into telling us silly jokes these days. Last year, we made our own DIY LEGO classroom Valentines so I thought it would be fun to make DIY valentines with Valentine’s Day jokes for him to pass out to his classroom friends at school. We gathered up a bunch of heart-themed jokes and even made up some of our own using punch lines from other jokes.

I designed these printable Valentines cards for ASTROBRIGHTS® Papers who sponsored this project. I’m happy to announce that I’ll be contributing four projects to this year including printable templates and full step-by-step instructions. Thanks, Astrobrights, for sponsoring this post. I only work with brands that I use and love.

Tuck a joke into lunchboxes on Valentine’s Day

And my printable Valentine’s Day Joke Valentines also make great lunchbox notes. You could make 14 to count down to Valentine’s Day — just put one into your child’s lunchbox each day from February 1 – 14 — or make one lunchbox note for February 14. I would choose this joke for lunchbox notes on Valentine’s Day: “What did peanut butter say to the jelly on Valentine’s Day?”

You only need a handful of supplies to make these DIY Jokes Valentines: ASTROBRIGHTS Papers, glue, scissors, and a craft knife and ruler (or butter knife). Color-wise Liam and I chose Fireball Fuchsia™, Pulsar Pink™, Plasma Pink™, Celestial Blue® and Re-Entry Red™ from my Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookies color palette inspiration.
