Who doesn’t love adorable Valentine’s cards for little ones? I’m a total fan for sharing a fun craft— no sugar necessary!
Owen loves anything related to trains, dinosaurs, and mac & cheese. Since I couldn’t send in the little guy with some homemade mac for Valentine’s Day (pretty confident that would’ve been his request), we went for a fun dinosaur-themed Valentine’s Day card to give to all his school friends.
And the best part about all this? I didn’t even need to leave my couch. #MomWin
I found this pack of mini dinosaurs and treat bags online. Then I printed up a quick little dinosaur printable to tie around the bags.
Aren’t they adorable?
And don’t worry, I made an extra set just for you to use, too! Because none of should have to leave the comfort of our couch when it’s so cold out! 🙂
DIY Dinosaur Valentines Cards
First, you will want to download the Dinosaur Card file from the printables library. I’ll send you all the details in the form at the bottom of this post.
In the meantime, gather your mini dinosaurs and treat bags. I used these dinosaurs, but really, you could use any size. I tossed in 4 dinos per preschooler and it worked out perfectly.
Once you have the file, print it off on either regular printer paper or cardstock. With a quick hole punch, the cards were ready to go!
The treat bags came with silver twisty ties, but I found some leftover ribbon and used it up. I was pretty jazzed to bring out the ribbon curling with the scissor skills I’d long forgotten about.
Boom– instant crafty project for Owen and it took about 30 minutes from printing, cutting, assembling, and curling. Not too bad and Owen is thrilled to share his some of his favorite things with his friends!
- Place 2-3 loose dinosaurs inside the clear bag
- Print off the dinosaur cards
- Hole Punch in upper left corner of dinosaur card
- Loop the ribbon through the dinosaur card
- Tie the treat bag closed
If you don't have ribbon, you could always fold over the treat bag and staple the card onto the top!
