1. Write a Valentine Message on the Back
Writing and exchanging messages is one of the most common ways to celebrate the season with your kids. And you can write a simple yet heartfelt message on the backs of these printables in many different ways. You can start by reminding them how thankful you are for having them in your life and how much they mean to you. Aside from that, you can also inscribe the material with words that inspire or encourage them to keep up their good work.
You can write your messages along with age-old rhymes too:
“Roses are red, violets are blue
Life is so amazing, all thanks to a great kid like you!”
2. Have Them as Cute Little Tags, Labels, or Hangers
Gift-giving is one of the traditions people do during Valentine’s Day. Apart from that, decorating our homes and classrooms is very common too.

It tells them that you remember all their likes and favorites. Besides that, you can also help your kids in their yearly card swapping event in school. Nothing else can make a kid even happier, knowing that their parents have always been there for them and that they’ll watch over them no matter what.
