You don’t need to spend a fortune on store-bought Valentine’s Day cards to show someone how much you care. A homemade card can be just as thoughtful, and making a DIY Valentine card gives kids the opportunity to put real thought into why they are sending cards and how their act of kindness will impact others. All you need to make your own is some paper, crayons, and a little bit of imagination. Here are some creative Valentine card ideas to inspire you.
