Tiny Animal Valentines- just print and add a toy to these adorable non candy valentine treats!

Since this is my first year getting Valentines ready for one of my kids classes (my son is in tues and thurs morning preschool), I was really excited- but I haven’t found any Valentines for boys that I like. Or even some that would be good for girls or boys from a boy.

These Tiny Animal Valentines are perfect for boys – but they really would be great for little girls, too. Especially the wild animals!

There are four printable designs to chose from, or you can download the whole set.

To make these, I printed them out on HEAVY cardstock (thin computer paper wont hold the weight of a toy animal well).

I then found some inexpensive packages of tiny frogs, wild animals, dinosaurs, and crocodiles. You can find bulk small toys like these at US Toy, Oriental Trading Company, and dollar stores- usually for well under $5 for 12. You can also order here:

I then cut out the valentines (or you could print the individual ones on 5×7 blank cards- most big stores and craft stores have boxes of cards you can print on), and punched two holes through them.

I then looped some bakers twine through the card and used it to tie the animal tight to the card. Voila!

Valentines for boys- 4 awesome free printables! Just add a toy!

Took way less time than baking something, and a lot of schools don’t allow candy treats or homebaked goods (so glad our school does allow for those!!). Since lots of kids have allergies, I figured a non-candy or non-food valentine would be the easiest to give, and what kid doesn’t love little toys??

I added different “wild animals” (zebras, tigers, rhinos, etc) to the Wild animal cards…

And added little frogs to the Your heart makes me jump cards:

I also thought Oh Snap! would be a fun way to give out alligators on a card:

And of course, most boys are obsessed with dinosaurs, so a little dino was perfect for You’re DINOmite!
