Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I absolutely can’t wait! I never loved Valentine’s Day before I had children, but now I can’t get enough of the red, pink and white. I love cutting out red construction paper hearts with my daughters and covering them with glitter for their dad and I love designing the valentines my girls will give to their friends. Every year I pull together a handful of different options, they are just so much fun to make.
This airplane valentines is perfect to pair with a fun little paper glider. Kids love them and they are affordable!
For this Valentine you will need:
- the printable found at the end of this post
- paper gliders (we used these provided by Oriental Trading)
- bakers twine
- a single hole punch
Print and cut out the paper valentine. Have you child address them to each child in their class. Punch a hole in the corner of the Valentine and a hole in the plastic of the paper glider. Use a small amount of bakers twine threaded through both holes to tie a bow!
Stay tuned for more free Valentine Printables in the coming weeks!

That's really neat. I love it when a Valentine's Day idea is different. The same old cards and candy gets old after a while.

Those are so cute! Boys and girls alike would love them. I used to make my daughter's Valentine's to take to school, but now that we homeschool we don't do them anymore. I may have to make these for our homeschool group!
These are so cute. Who wouldn't want to enjoy these cute bookmarks and airplanes all year long.
I love this idea. So cute! I love that its a little plane and not a treat. Kids get so many treats for Valentine's, this is a great alternative. Thanks for sharing.

What an easy and fun DIY for Valentine's Day! I love that it doesn't have any candy so you don't have to worry about allergies or too much sugar for the kiddos!
This is such a fun craft. I like that isn't all hearts and stuff. I'll need to keep this in mind when my kiddos get a bit older.
