If there is one thing that keeps my kids busy, it is animal figures. I keep a small bag of them in my purse at all times and when we get stuck somewhere, I pull them out and the kids are thrilled. My kids love the little animals so much, I thought they would make the perfect little valentine!
For This Valentine You Will Need:
- The printable (Link at the bottom of this post)
- small animal figures
- Baker’s Twine
- a hole punch
Print and cut out the printable Valentine. Have your child address them. Punch a hole on either side of the the valentine. Slide baker’s twine through both holes and tie the small animal to the front of the card.
I was able to find a small bag of animals at the dollar store, which made this valentine super affordable to make. I think the kids are going to love getting a little animal instead of just another sucker.
Do your kids love little animals as much as mine?

My son loves animals and these would make great Valentine's! I'll have to make some too!
Those are adorable! I need to make a trip to the dollar store this weekend, so I think I will try and find some little animals for the kids' valentines for their party next week!
These are adorable valentine's cards! And I think giving out little toys is a much better idea than candy. Sometimes the holiday's that emphasize giving out candy can get a little over whelming!
What a fun idea. I should put a bag of cars in my purse. That would keep my kids entertained.
These are adorable! Those little animals will keep the kids enteratined.
Kristin Carbery says

Those are cute. This year I printed out ones that say YOURE A GEM OF A FRIEND and we're going to put tie ring pops on them. So fun, right?!
My kids go crazy over zoo animals so this is perfect!
This reminds me of the animal theme room my son had when he was little. He loved it!
Omg these valentines are just wayyyy too cute!!!!! I can't believe my daughters school party is this week! Craziness!
