While Valentine’s Day is all about hearts and love, sometimes a kid just wants a non-mushy valentine that’s not pink and red with hearts all over it. Enter these cute dinosaur valentines printable for kids!
I’ve created these printables for boy and girl moms everywhere who either don’t want store-bought Valentine’s Day cards, who aren’t allowed to bring candy to their kids’ classrooms (or don’t want to), and who want the kids to have something fun to play with long after the valentines box and all the paper valentines have made it to the trash.
These dinosaur valentines printable for kids are super simple too and cheap too! Just follow these super cute directions for instant dinosaur cuteness.
A big thanks to my friends at Oriental Trading Company who sent me the awesome dinosaurs for this project. If you’re looking for a deal at Oriental Trading, be sure to visit their coupon page for the latest sales!
Dinosaur Valentines Printable
Step 1. Print the FREE printable dinosaur valentines. There are 4 valentines per page. Cut them out.
Step 2. Use your hot glue gun to glue each dinosaur eraser (or dinosaur toy) to the middle of each valentine. It doesn’t hurt them, I promise, although my little guy who was watching was pretty unsure of this for a few minutes. 😉
I bought my dinosaur erasers from Oriental Trading Company. They are a good size, are so colorful and fun, and come in a pack of 24 which is a perfect class set! They can be used as toys instead of erasers too if the kids want.
Step 3. Have your little dino lover write their name on the bottom of each valentine for good name-writing practice.
My little guy just started school so I’m going to have him sign a few dinosaur valentines a day so that it isn’t too overwhelming to do all in one sitting.
I just love how simple and clean these valentines are. And oh so easy!
