These cards can be as handmade as you want them to be. You can print out the templates and simply attach the heart with a glue dot. Or you can take the general idea and draw your own flower stem, this is probably the most fun for kids.

Supplies for eco-friendly Valentine’s Day cards:

  • Seeded Paper Hearts
  • White or pink printer paper
  • Glue dots (this will minimize the amount of glue on your seeded paper)
  • Templates or markers if creating your own designs

DIY Valentines Cards for Classmates

For kids I’ve made this fun template that says “Grow a Little Love”. I’ve included the growing instructions at the bottom. You’ll need to cut those instructions off and add your own if you purchase a different type of seeded paper.

DIY Valentines cards for classmates

It creates a great, simple valentines day craft for kids to make for their friends whether they’re in preschool or elementary school. It’s also a great way to talk about being eco-friendly as the paper will be recyclable and the heart itself can be grown into beautiful spring flowers!

Valentines Cards from teacher to students

For cards from a teacher for students grab the template that says “I love watching you grow”. Here too I have included the instructions on the bottom for how to grow the seeded paper hearts.

Valentines cards from teacher to students

You can either send these home for them to grow or turn it into a class project with some small containers and a little bit of dirt. It’s a great way to help teach kids about being eco-friendly and they’ll love growing their very own flowers!

I hope you enjoy making these handmade Valentine’s Day Cards!
