Valentine’s Day card stARTers for your students. This resource includes 12 different card “starter” ideas/templates. They are designed to start the creative juices flowing in your students. Some of the starter designs are more intricate then others in an effort to help provide you with some differentiation options.

Students love to be creative and they love to give cards to people they care about – especially around Valentine’s Day. This Valentine’s Day activity will help you foster both of those interests in your students. Each child is given a “starter” to a picture that will then become the front of a greeting card. They will then write a nice message inside and give the card to someone special!

Encourage your students to be as creative as possible and dream up any design they can using the portion of a picture that has been provided to them. This activity will allow your students to show their individuality and creativity and give them a place to “start” making their Valentine’s Day cards.

There are 12 “Starter” ideas included:

  • A rose
  • Heart with arrow
  • Heart lollipop
  • Concentric hearts
  • Message box
  • Envelope
  • Bear
  • Cupcake
  • Candy hearts
  • Balloons
  • Butterflies
  • Flower stems

Also included is a step-by-step VIDEO you can use to do the teaching of this Valentine's Day Activity!
