Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday for kids. They just like it because they get lots of free candy and get to make stuff. They haven’t actually had their hearts broken or been single on a holiday when everyone else is gets pampered, showered with roses or loved by someone. (Not that I was bitter about every Valentine’s Day from middle school until high school graduation…lol) So why not let them enjoy this holiday to the fullest while it’s still fun. Most every kid in America participates in some kind of Valentine Day treat swap so I decided to make up some printable color-your-own bag toppers for families out there that have crafty kids and don’t want to purchase cards this year.
Boys vs Girls
I wanted to be sure I made equally cool printables for boys or girls so I made one up with a camouflage pattern that the boys can color over with browns, blacks, and greens if they want. Oh, and some of the art looks a little like slime. Just covering all my “boy” bases here. I also created one that said “Best Friends” since not all those gushy card sayings apply to life when you are in elementary school. Either way, I hope you print as many as you want and have fun with it!
