best free printable valentines | cool mom picks

Save yourself the last-minute crunch for classroom Valentine’s Day cards by printing the cutest, most stylish Valentines now, right from the comforts of home. We just featured all sorts of DIY Valentine’s classroom cards including printables made for handing out treats, but we couldn’t resist offering up more than a dozen more.

Best of all? If your child comes home from school on the 13th with three more kids’ names (and a teacher and an assistant teacher and a gymnastics coach) that he forgot, you can just print the extra cards and have them ready before he heads off to school on the 14th.

Cute Retro Valentine’s Day Cards
Heidi Kenney’s retro-style, pun-filled Valentine’s Day cards remind me of cards I once passed out as a child. Though I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have understood “I like you a latte” back in the 70′s. ($5 for printable file)

(free printables from On To Baby)

 

Yoda Best Valentine Card | Cool Mom Picks

Printable Yoda Valentine Card
My Star Wars-obsessed son would love to hand out these cute printable Yoda Valentine’s Day classroom cards with little glow sticks (uh, light sabers) attached. Not into glow sticks?

Loom bracelet Valentine cards | Cool Mom Picks

Loom Band Printable Valentine’s Day Card
The only downside to the Great Rainbow Loom Crafting Explosion of 2013 is that we now have approximately 100 loom bracelets hanging around the house. I love this idea of turning these “extras” into special Valentine’s treats to attach to little tags. Or stock up on some red and white bands and your loom master can make special Valentine-colored bracelets for the entire class. (free printable tags from The Crafted Sparrow; larger cards available here)
