You Spin Me Right Round- Pinwheel Valentine with Free Printable


Are you ready for Valentine's Day yet? If not this easy printable Valentine will get you ready in a snap!

This Pinwheel valentine cracks up parents and the kids love getting the pinwheels to go with them. I can't see to go a year without a sneaky 80s reference.



For this Valentine you will need:
  • the printable found at the end of this post
  • Pinwheels (we used these provided by Oriental Trading
  • scissors
  • bakers twine
  • a single hole punch

Print and cut out the paper valentine. Have you child address them to each child in their class. Using the single hole punch, punch a hole in the corner of each valentine.

Add the sticks to each of your pinwheels and then tie a piece of bakers twine around the pinwheel and through the hole in the card.



Your kids will have a blast putting together this fun candyless valentine and who doesn't love a pinwheel?

Stay tuned for more free Valentine Printables in the coming weeks!

What a cute idea to attach to a pinwheel. I wish my kids were younger to hand out valentines, at 13 and 21 they don't do this at school anymore.
