Sometimes candy isn’t the best option for Valentines, especially when you know a lot of it is coming your way from the other members of your child’s class. Even without candy you can have the coolest Valentines in class with one of these sweet Valentines.

Scratch Off Valentine - Urban Comfort

These DIY scratch off Valentines are so clever, and really pretty easy to make. Once you know the secrets to making your own scratch offs, the possibilities are really endless, but I love the heart scratch offs with a lucky penny included. I can’t think of a kid (or a grown up for that matter) who wouldn’t like to receive one!

Mad Lib Valentine - Design Mom

These MadLib Valentines are brilliant for older kids who don’t want to go for the mushy lovely dovey notes but they’d also be fun for just about anyone. I love the little pop of color from the scrapbook paper and string. Quirky and fun all in one.

Wild for You Valentine - Design Mom

I love these little animal valentines! Who needs candy when you can get a wee little pet to play with long after the sweets have been eaten up?  So Adorable! And easily personalized so each child can get their favorite animal. You could create a similar look with bugs (love bugs maybe?) or magical creatures.

What kind of Valentines are you kiddos giving this year? Send us a picture! And check out these and other Valentines crafts on our Craft Trends Pinboard!
