Do you have any memories of going to school on Valentine’s Day as a kid with a bag full of adorable tiny cards for the children in your class? Remember how fun it was to customize them the previous evening and choose which friend would receive which Valentine? Who would receive a blue raspberry lollipop as a blessing? (By the way, the best lollipops ever.)

Giving cards and gifts to all of your friends was so much fun, and receiving them in return was just as enjoyable. For adults, it’s a heady dose of nostalgia, and for kids today, it’s even better because most cards also include cute little extras like candy or surprises like toys that will make their Valentines feel especially special.

The carefully chosen Valentine’s Day cards for kids on our list are stylish, allow youngsters to do some DIY, and simply provide something special for them to share with their classmates. See our picks for the cutest Valentine’s Day cards for kids, which your young ones will love.

P.S. When you build your children’s Valentine’s Day box, make sure the slot is big enough because many of the cards they will receive will come with an extra gift.

This is a wonderful alternative to giving out candy, and it’s especially great when you don’t know the allergies of the classroom or fellow students.
