Choosing Valentines – Let the Kids Decide!

Kids don’t often get to have much input into Mom’s purchases, but for the valentines they hand out at school, they love to make the decision. Kids feel that their valentines say a lot about them, and we agree. It’s all about matching your child’s personality and the things they love to the right card. We’ve grouped these kids’ valentine card ideas so all you have to do is match the kids to the cards!

We invited a bunch of kids to Pear Tree for a photo shoot, and created this video so we could show you some fun photography tips for Valentine’s Day that you can recreate at home. We had the kids dress in Valentine’s Day colors of pink and red, then created three different white backdrops that would make them stand out. Then we put the photos in our favorite new Valentine’s Day cards to see how they’d look!

Set a chair or fluffy rug in front of it for kids to sit on and you’ve got yourself a set for the photo shoot. Props like heart-shaped suckers are sure to bring smiles.

Valentine's Day cards
Our new kids’ classroom valentine card ideas are especially dear to us. So when we see that other people love them, too, it makes us happy. This month’s featured favorite is actually two cards—two kids’ valentine’s day cards for a brother and sister, each with strong opinions on what kind of card they wanted to hand out at school.

Valentine’s Day Myth #2: Off-the-shelf Valentines are the Only Choice for Kids

Nothing irritates the moms at Pear Tree more than having to buy boxed valentines off the shelf for our kids’ classmates. What, we ask, do Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have to do with Valentine’s Day?

Those of us who work for Pear Tree, of course, like to get creative and make our valentines a little more personal—even if they’re just for kids. Because if we do it right, the kids have really cool cards to hand out at school, and we might just have an adorable greeting to send to friends and relatives.

Valentine Kids Cards -- Caterpillar Finger PuppetCreative Valentines Day Cards -- Up and Away Airplane
Some of our favorite dual-purpose kids Valentine’s Day cards include interactive valentines, such as our Caterpillar Finger Puppet that kids can play with, or the Up and Away Airplane that can be folded into a paper airplane. We also love the kids’ valentines that feature a photo of your child, such as the Starry Super Hero or Queen of Hearts valentines.

Kids Valentine Ideas: Interactive Cards

It’s not just a valentine. It’s a puppet! It’s a plane! It’s a lollipop holder! Handing out valentines at school is a lot more fun when your valentine does something nobody else’s does. We had just one thought in mind when designing Pear Tree’s Valentine’s Day collection this year—what would kids love to get their hands on?

Valentine Candy Cards -- Stylish Mustache
A card that holds a treat seems to solve two problems at once: whether to hand out a card or a treat, and how to attach your card to the candy if you want to hand out both. Our Love and Lips Kids Valentine’s Day Cards and Stylish Mustache Kids Valentine’s Day Cards have a little hole punched through them, so kids can insert a lollipop. The cards are personalized with their name, so there’s no need to sign each one. Perfect for parents, too!
