15 Easy Cheap Valentines for Kids
1. Printable Valentine Bookmarks from Positively Splendid
These colorful bookmarks are easy to print out and assemble in minutes. Plus, hopefully, they’ll inspire the recipient to dive into reading too!
2. Orange You Glad Valentine from Crafting in the Rain
Orange these just cute? Use orange slice gummy candies or as a healthier alternative, you could put a mandarin orange or regular orange in a bigger bag and use the same label.
4. Bursting with Happiness Valentine from I Heart Nap Time
A simple but fun valentine!
5. Cookie Cutter Valentine via The Scrap Shoppe Blog
Another fun non-food idea! If you want, you could make some homemade play-dough, put a small ball of it in a sealed plastic bag and add it to the cookie cutter. These cute heart shaped cookie cutters would work great!
6. Color My World Valentine by Motherhood on a Dime
I love this idea of using printable coloring pages as part of your valentine. It really doesn’t get much more simple, inexpensive and yet fun than that!
7. Like You S’more Valentine from Capturing Joy
An adorable twist on an American classic! Yum!
8. 4 Non-Candy Valentines from Pretty Prudent
Four cute valentine ideas and all for things kids love! Not sure where to get the supplies inexpensively? Amazon to the rescue!
They have cellophane bags (depending on what items you use, you may need a bigger size!), Crayola crayons, bubbles, glitter (if you use bigger bags, these glitter pens would be fun too!) and fun colored Band-aids all at great prices.

Another really easy to assemble valentine! This 36 ct. pack of wooden rulers is less than $20, making these very inexpensive to make. And if you want to add a heart embellishment, these glitter foam stickers should work.

11. Same School Valentine from Hello Bee
Such a fun Valentine idea for classmates using individual bags of Goldfish crackers. If you want to make this even more cost-effective, buy the goldfish in bigger packages, divide them into smaller bags and then attach the label to that.
12. Have a Ball Valentine from Dixie Delights
I know these would be popular at our house as my children think they can never have too many of these little rubber balls. You can get a 25 ct. pack of the balls inexpensively here.
